We often read of the Thai's propensity to attack a person six or more against one. Why does it happen? Commentators on here usually put it down to cowardice, but I think there's more to it than that.

 

Thailand has a very strict and to many an overbearing class structure, and those involved in these one-sided attacks usually come from the very bottom of the structure. They are looked down upon by everyone. That must be very frustrating, and so when they have a chance to vent that frustration, even over a trivial matter, they fight back with the only weapon they have, violence. It is their only opportunity to assert themselves, Add to the mix that Thais have very little self-control as discipline barely exists in society, and you have a perfect set-up for what we so often see.

 

Just my point of view.

Accusation of Troll is in fact a Troll comment.

Moderators will decide on the content/intent of a topic and whether action needs to be taken.

It may be a cultural thing. Thais stick together like one big family and so all pile in when there is a fight.

 

When a Farang gets in a fight, his friends will rarely help him... you are on your own.

 In the Western world, we typically fight one against one and stop once one person is defeated .

That's an incredibly naïve view of violence in the west!  When you refer to "we", presumably you're referring to the way that you claim to fight, yes?

It really isnt .

Large gangs tend not to attack single persons when theres no need to in the West .

And once a person gets knocked down, usually the fights over
