Completed in 2016, King Power MahaNakhon held the record for a while, only to be replaced by the 70-floor Magnolias Waterfront Residences, which now stands the tallest. It’s a monument to Thailand’s rise from a low-income country to upper-middle-income economy in less than a generation.

Two related incidents over the past few days can tell how far the country has come in its attempt to upgrade politics. A government MP has humiliated provincial police as he felt they failed to give him a reception he deserved, and of all the people who lambasted him, one opposition figure stood out. The key question is not about what they did, but it has to do with how the public think about both men.
