Sorry but all of us dont plan on boarding the train to the new dystopia...

Have it your way but it's clearly going to be different moving forward. The difference between "different" and "dystopia" is imagination or lack there of. Some can only imagine more of the same in an unsustainable environment which will in fact lead to the dystopian future you mention. It doesn't have to be that way.

This should be a long way to go

as far as i can remember in 20 years of travels and

residency in thailand i have never seen a Thai reading a book

(Except the young ones with school books)

Well noted and I can verify that.  Wife and I leave Thailand a couple of times a year for a holiday. To help her appreciate the country we plan to visit , I buy her a travel guide written in Thai. 

Anyone want to buy pristine copies of Fodor's guides to Hong Kong / Taiwan / Vietnam / Singapore etc etc etc.

Musicians skills are only gained after years of hard work and do not really apply to any other job......Its a damm sad situation....

 

But things have been getting worse for musicians for decades already........Napster was the start of musicians wows.....Record sales started falling each year.....Then digital downloads stole most of musicians recording income....They only get fractions of a cent for digital downloads....

David Crosby and others have been very vocal about the music theft that is going on in the music industry...

 

Now if musicians cant play live they have almost zero income.....

What's the connection with the OP?

Lobby for the legalization of gambling and turn them all into slot machine arcades, casinos and "gorge yourself" buffet restaurants for the first tourists - the Chinese and South Koreans!

Pattaya can change and look for tourists with other interests than sex and booze. Perhaps now is the best time for this. 

Plenty of tourists have no interest in the sex here.    Not many tourists anywhere in the world have no interest in having a drink.

Dr Khamnuan Ungchusak who suggested at a seminar that the entertainment industry in Thailand should reopen by doing something less risky.

I wonder how he would react if they pulled his medical license and was told " no problem, just do something else"

Suggestion to change nightlife: Instead of dancing girls, hostesses, and ladydrinks for companions, feature topless waitresses. Who cares if they are wearing masks and gloves? They could liberally apply gel so you could refresh your hand sanitizer throughout the evening at the mere cost of 100 baht. Also management would save on the high cost of dancing girls! 😯😆

But suggesting that businesses and staff could just do something else less risky was nonsense and unrealistic. 

So, not in the running for top bosses at a refunded Thai Airways then

Unsure about that.

I am a non drinker, but I do like to stay with friends in a bar terrace with a nice view.

I have plenty of friends in the same cases, and surely plenty of tourists too.

The fact that alcohol seems to have a huge importance in life of US and UK students doesn't mean that it's the same in all countries !

Alcohol is not needed to live well and happy.
