Poll: Thais want better living standards

It would be news if they were willing to work for those better living standards. Like losing the face culture, kowtowing, have real democracy and all that jazz. 

Thais can take back-breaking, tough labor, and with fewer complaints than farangs.  


The really difficult work for Thais is breaking their programming.  As it is for all of us, I suppose... In one sense or another.  Thais won't just "lose" face culture--like a handbag--overnight.  It's going to be a slow process, unless something unforeseeably traumatic/dramatic happens.  I mean, something seriously from left field here, like a meteor strike or something.  They'll change when they're absolutely forced to... and they already have a very, very, very high threshold for getting pissed off enough to upset the apple cart.


Democracy here will be in name only until you have a populace at least somewhat capable of critical thinking and, especially, introspection.
