Thailand would do well to mimic a Finnish model that’s bearing fruit in schools, countering this damaging social menace

Finnland, huh :cheesy::cheesy::cheesy::cheesy: Don't even start.....

Real news was on wikileaks. Look what happens. 

 

EVerything is fake and biased, and what is not you are not allowed to see. That is the non fake news.

Fake news is easy. Start teaching them about propaganda and individualism. But don't do that in Thailand.

That isnt actually fake news though , maybe a bit of an exaggeration saying that it was a miracle though , *lucky* would have been more fitting

Luckily that's easy here. Just don't believe anything at all.

 

When it comes to Finnish and Thai press they are basically the polar opposites. IIRC Finland was #1 in press freedom. It's improved vastly since USSR fell, although the main paper (Helsingin Sanomat) is still full of reds and alphabet-feminist crowd. In here it's junta news 24/7.

Luckily there is no fake news to be worried about in Thailand, it's all kosher - carefully screened by the all caring government to ensure you only receive factual junta policy all for the good of Thailand.

Maybe teaching about fake news in schools could help form a better understanding.images-43.jpg

It's not only children who need to be taught about fake news. My wife often believes things she reads on social media.

 

Examples recently:

Queen Elizabeth to divorce.

Prince Charles to divorce

Megan gave birth to twin boys

The list goes on and on.

 

Don't get me started on Urban Myths and Chain Mails.

There is just too much magical thinking in Thailand for critical thinking skills to get a foothold.
