So many changes in the last 20 years, many not good.

Recommended Posts

The whole World was a better place to visit,20-30 years ago,

lots of places i would not like to return too,either too dangerous,

or have turned into <deleted>holes.

When I first came to live in Thailand 30 years ago,it was a much

more freewheeling place,not so many restrictions,nothing seemed

a problem.I am the same but Thailand has really changed.

regards Worgeordie

What others do with social media is neither my responsibility nor my problem.

It's not my "problem" either, but the world I am living in is now controlled by it, possibly our generation should have been a little bit more aware of what was happening then the next generation would have been able to enjoy the same things.

Personally I am in a good place 🙂 I have been in SEA since the late seventies, life has been good - but the thread is about "changes and not for the better" not how we rate ourselves on the happiness index. :thumbsup:

Nice picture by the way 👍

Others are free to focus on the "not good" part if that is their preference

Unfortunately I/we have to deal with the "not good" part, I also am quite selfish and would prefer to ignore the madness of the "New world order"

As an example I have been consolidating my finances and closing down accounts that I have used that I have used over the years, to close one that was US based I had to prove I was not a sex offender that had the same name somewhere in the US, another account that I opened well over twenty years ago I am still trying to close as I still haven't proved to them I am who I say though I am wading through the seven pieces of paper they sent me to have certified.

I was lucky enough to have had a house in Koh Samui from 1989 to 1992, it was very nice back then! - now been pretty well destroyed as people's main aim in life is to seek wealth.

We try grow most of our own vegetables as the local food chain is corrupted with chemicals, fish and prawns are all farmed, the list is endless sadly I can't ignore the facts as you can! I can't even read "facts" in the media anymore as the news is no longer "news" :shock1:

It's a shame ..:cheesy:

 

I remember, 45 years ago, we can enter everywhere inside London with our 32 tons** trucks and stop  along a sidewalk with two continuous yellow stripes without a cop come and fine us ..
Must also say that it was in the middle of the night next to a pub open  especially at night for us truckers ...

There was an atmosphere to die for in a smoky room :crazy:

 

45 y ago the max load of a semi trailor was 32 tons ...now, it's much more ...

Don;t know if it's better ...

We do have a local garbage dump, would you like for me to go there and take some ugly pictures for you?

 

Oops, here is another pristine photo from one of my favorite places here in Chiangrai.
