Earning? Does not mean better or worse living. People equate living with money. To live does not require money. Money is what is the cause of peoples problems. Wanting more and more....

 

Rich Guy? I do not know what rich means I understand what society says it means. I am just another person in the world that is living in a world that I had no hand in "creating"


Seeking income? I think people all over does not matter Thai or not everyone is seeking money that is a learned behavior. There is no better or worse form of living there is only the illusions of what is better. A man in a jungle outside, a person with out or does not need money is not looking for "better living" He/She does not know what the word means....

 

 

Yes, living in the jungle like Tarzan doesnt require any money , living in a cave, drinking rain water and bananas doesnt require money .

"Rich" means having more than most , and as normal wage in Thailand is 3-400 Baht a day , if you receive double that amount , you are "rich" , compared to the poor

So clean air, water, food and open spaces such as parks didnt really rate that high.  I guess Thai's equate living standards with strip malls - of which there are thousands.

It is healthy to want more. The problem...you have to give more. This is normally done with better education. The wage gap is aligned with the education gap.

Around my way 99% of the Men want bigger Hammocks, more Beer and more Fags and want their Wive's to work longer hours in the Market than the 18-20 hours they are already working to supply those requirements !

Sure they want bigger hammocks. Watching rice grow is stressful and tiring

that's all ?! should be near unanimous; something is up with this poll

Yes, it's a poll.

If I get stopped and asked I mostly give total crap answers and they still note them.

What Thais don't seem to understand is that if your standard of living is going to go up it does not come free, someone has to pay for it, they need to work harder. Remember when Yingluck promised 300 bts  a day, everyone thought they were in on this till the rate was explained that that was for Bangkok alone, less outside, it did not stop the prices going up to pay for the new rate and the prices have continued to go up even though the rate still stays the same, 300 bts a day, inflation is what we call it, prices up is what Thais call it.

Anyone can make these claims when they don't have to fund them, politics are well into these games and I bet many will believe them only to be told later that they did not understand what they were voting for.

Unless a single party gets a huge majority of seats in the house of representatives (highly unlikely) then the Senate (all appointed by Prayuth) will dictate what is and what isn't.
