Poll shows most Thais believe political division is insoluble

A slim majority of the Thai people believe that political polarization will continue after the new government is in place and the problem will not be resolved because it is deeply entrenched in Thai society, according to a Suan Dusit Poll today.

 

The poll gauged the opinions of 1,107 people between May 22nd and 25th on the subject of “The People and Their Wait or the New Government”.

 

Asked about political conflict before and after the formation of the new government, 52.21% of the respondents believe national reconciliation will never be achieved because the divisions have been deeply entrenched for a long time, while 34.06% believe that the conflict will escalate because none of parties in the conflict will accept each other.

Of course, HE who cannot be discussed in Thailand is a major part of all the problems and the solutions.  Until some of that issue is resolved, no change in status quo.

Purely because of the great social inequality. We all know exactly who stands on the side of the yellows and military, and who lines up behind the reds and 'democracy'. A society so driven apart by social inequality, where justice depends solely on your status and where status is just granted because of your birth or wealth, is never going to be a happy place. The lack of human rights, freedoms and real justice will keep people fighting for ever. 

There's only one solution imho: a forced division of labour to create what French sociologist Emile Durkheim called "organic solidarity" Empower the peasants from Lanna and Issan to get fit for a modern labour market. And yes, in the newly created Economic Corridors it seems to work. E.g. right here in the outskirts of Pattya a new working middle class is emerging.

Sorry but you're wrong, the divide is purely Ethnic.

Ethnic Laos vote Thaksin, Siam Thai vote Junta.

Seems you are in full agreement with the post you responded to by Lungstib.

The US is one of the most politically divided and hate field nations right now, I can't see that country calming down any time soon. Not to mention the sheer level of racism there as well (racism in both directions)

During these last elections, it did not work as much as before. The Junta gotv23% of vote, probably less than 20% without rigging, so I guess there are more ethnic Thai than that. On top of it, a significant share of votes forvPPP has been brought by ex- pro Thaksin politicians from N and NE.
