Any chance of the locals rising up or doing any physical demonstration are gone now forever and here is why:

 

Social Media. This is the worst thing that could of ever happened to the chances of restoring democracy to Thailand and I actually think the authorities have even cottonnoed onto this now.

 

Seriously think about the nature of the locals and their constant desire for the path of least resistance (Laziness in real terms but not sure I am allowed to outright say that). Social Media is perfect for them now...no need to physically do anything because as far as they are concerned just posting something online or sharing something or liking something IS doing something in their mind. In their view that is “good enough”.

 

So whilst Social Media is good for spreading the news it has actuallly completely killed the possibility of the Thais now ever taking any physical action. And physical action is the only thing that will bring about change.

Other counterspies it's the opposite. Social media has been used to gather thousands to protest and activate. Thais are just brainwashed to think they 'deserve' being downtrodden.

You are right. But people can amass as much evidence of malfeasance and criminality as they wish - mountains of it, stretching to the moon - and it will not make the slightest difference to who will continue to control Thailand.

 

I think most of us know in our heaviest heart of hearts that there is only one way now that can bring the dinosaurs to extinction - and it will need to have the force of a comet!

I don't see that comet striking anytime soon.

That's right but Dinosaurs do die eventually and I'm hoping the new generation don't become Dinosaurs themselves. 20 years, give or take, should do it.

Dinosaurs did die out over time. However, the sudden unexpected and disastrous (for the dinosaurs) impact of a comet (meteor) sped up the process several thousand fold.

 

I go back to my grade 6 chemistry (oh so long ago) Apart from the entirely unforgettable and hilarious incident when our chemistry teacher set his trousers on fire when a lump of phosphorus which he was holding up with tongs to demonstrate to us crumbled and fell onto his trousers, my principle memory is of "catalysts". A catalyst is a seemingly innocuous compound, which needs to be present for a reaction between two other compounds to occur. Whatever reaction eventually disposes of the dinosaurs and their rule will need such a catalyst. I don't know what it will be, or how it will occur, but there will be such a catalyst. I thought a few years back it might have been the prosecution of Yingluck Shinewatra. It proved not to be, although her imprisonment would possibly have been. She decided to go, and the junta allowed her to go - probably for that reason. Anyway, there will be a reaction, and it will have a catalyst. It might be something of itself insignificant - an example of corruption which just tips over the edge, or something major, the banning of Future Forward and the jailing of it's leaders perhaps? But there will be a reaction, at some stage.

 

That will be the sudden impact of your comet.

Please use discretion in your references to the government. Phrases which can be considered as anti-coup will be removed. Referring to Thailand or the government as a dictatorship, military dictatorship or other such terms will be removed.

May I suggest we use the term loving, guiding, parental overseer.

You obviously forgot to fill in the tm30 correctly and as I never have or will fill one out they don't seem to be able to locate me and as I'm not far from the border I just do border runs instead much less hassle.

They know where I am. And if they have any problems I'll assist them in locating me. My thinking is, if they throw me out of the country it would be the least dangerous way to leave my girlfriend, without getting one of my favorite body parts cut off while I sleep.
