Stubborn Thai people telling the government where they can stick laws for their own good

The Thai people are increasingly telling their own government where they can stick their plans for new laws.

 

And the government are backing down to the will of the people.

 

Even if they are convinced that the proposals are for the improvement of society and increased safety.

 

This was the overwhelming message from a Thai Rath investigation into the attitudes of the Thai people in today's society.

 

As evidence of this they looked at opposition to three government initiatives.

 

Three initiatives that were forced to be abandoned as the people protested and won the day.

 

These were:

 

Proposals to ban sitting in the back of pick-ups.

 

Result: Put off and shelved after being ignored by the people.

 

The Single Internet Gateway touted as protecting the Thai people

 

Result: Abandoned

 

Heavy fines and jail terms for people without road licenses.

 

Result: Looking every bit as likely to go the same way after back downs from the authorities.

 

Thai Rath did not mince their words saying that even initiatives that were for the good of the Thai people were being abandoned because they were refusing to obey laws they didn't want to obey.

 

Online campaigns in particular were being effective in blocking new moves.

 

The message was clear: Lawlessness and refusal to follow the government was the order of Thai society.

Classic,  Me Me and guess what More  Me.

Selfish to the core.  

I hope the cops fine them,  more and more each offence.

Get the big stick out, on those in Thai society that think rules and regulations are just for someone else.  the bad boys and girls are just make the good

Thai people look bad.

you know I am torn between my western logic that wants safety and my Beavis and Butthead 14 year old boy logic that loves freedom of telling the cops to <deleted> off.

A Thai guy on Facebook said yesterday that the new driving license fines would be unfair as half the drivers in his area don't even have licenses.

 

If you don't educate your people properly, this is what you get.

I applaud the people for defying the government. This administration is ridiculous, chock full of fake purity and notions of a higher moral fiber, and comes up with a different crackdown and law every week. Some might have some merit, but it is the heavy handed manner with which they impose them, that gets under people's skin. This current batch of leaders are completely lost. No competence. No leadership ability. No character. No gravitas. They bring less than zero to the table. 

 

Licensing is important. Something should be done about this issue. But just going out and announcing fines that amount to three of four months salary is a bit much, and not very well thought out, as usual. I think confiscating the vehicle, and holding it until a license is obtained, might be more effective.
