And it is long overdue you start asking yourself if they would be correct to look at you like this. 

 

Old people who worry too much are basically <deleted> up the entire world right now. Need proof? Look at Sweden. They are completely over this.

Its not the old people who are out spreading the virus , its the young people who are doing that

I don't have evidence - just a bit of common sense!

Let me explain (as if it hasn't been done a thousand times already):

a) tests were and are not widely available. So far, only a miniscule number of Thais have been tested. Numbers range from 400k to 700k! That is 0.1% of the population.

Hardly reliable!

b) as far as I know, tests are only free, if you test positive for COVID! If you test negative, you have to pay! Depending on where you are and and what hospital you go to (...and if you are Thai or foreigner) the range is from 1.000 to 11.000 THB.

Let's take a low average of THB 3.000!

Now have a look at the people in Isan! Many as poor as a puddle of pee, even before the pandemic and now even poorer, as many of the drivers of Isan- economy (the working girls of Bangkok, Pattaya etc) lost their jobs!

Do you REALLY believe, anyone would risk a THB 3.000 - test, when they feel a little feverish, have a dry cough... instead of just buying some Tiffy or get some frog-poop-pills from the local village wizard and try to ride it out?

c) before you come with the "piles of corpses in the streets"- narrative: since it is tradition to burn the dead rather quick...nope...won't happen!

d) no one tested anyone who died for COVID! EVER! 

e) the oh-so-praised widespread wearing of masks: did you EVER take a look at HOW many people were wearing those masks?

Half of the day, they were used as chin-straps by food vendors and market stall- owners, touching all their stuff with bare hands, touching their masks, never washing their hands...

I know: where YOU ARE, everybody was 100% sanatized 24/7, right!?

f) remeber, when the fresh  markets were ALL shut down?

Yes?

Because I don't!

Where I live and work (between Suan Plu and Surawonge in Bangkok) I could name you at least 4 places, where the markets NEVER closed!

Was that ever controlled?

Of course not!

(So much for discipline!)

 

I would never call you stupid!

And if I would, it would not be the only point, I am making!

But maybe...JUST MAYBE...stop thinking about Thailand as a magical fairy- kingdom, where all the mistakes of other countries don't happen!

 

 

 

Unfortunately, your common-sense does not correlate with mine. There is no CV19 in Thailand the facts support that statement. 

 

Do you know anyone who knows anyone who knows someone who has contracted the virus?   No.............. I didn't think so. This infection is not something you can hide unless you are asymptomatic.... by definition 100% of the people could not be asymptomatic.

 

You can skirt over the extensive use of masks (especially in the early stages when there was a real risk of infection) which does help - even WHO now (eventually) recognise that.

 

You can dismiss the corpses in the street argument but the fact is that has been no increase in deaths in Thailand (therefor no impact from CV19 cases). Hospotals under pressure from CV19 admissions?..... No.

Good question from the WHO, and the answer is no.  The young people can

remember that corona virus is spreadable, and if they go into big groups

then come back to their parents homes to live in the basement, infect the

parents and old relatives, they should be held responsible for any deaths

they cause. This is how it should be, but the young generation does not

take responsibility for much of anything. That is just a Fact..  Sad but True.

Not so long ago the younger generation was saying that the world was coming to an end because of climate change due to the lack of effort by politicians.

 

What was it Greta said? “The Older Generations Are Failing Us.” 

 

Seems the boots on the other foot now.

"Maybe you think that females, Thai females should be subordinates and never have a different opinion to you and to agree with you all the time ?"

Where - in the name of all that is holy - did that come from?

Maybe you should stop kissing behinds- Thais won't like you one iota more for doing it!

 

Her posts almost always close to being off- topic!

She constantly praises "her" people for being sooooo amazing and all foreigners (and their governments) for being stupid, citing the same charts over and over again!

And THAT is, what is being criticized!

But in that she's right. 

Look what's happening in the West with the pandemic, and then compare it to Thailand.

Looking at the world today it should not be too difficult for the young people to see what the older generations f$#$# up over the last decades and centuries.

The world is anyhow going down the drain and life for the now young people will be likely difficult when they are older.

Having that in mind I think it's not too difficult to understand when they want to have some fun in their life.

Is there behavior responsible? No.

Was the behavior from all the older generations always responsible? No

Nobody should be surprised that the young act now like the former young acted 50 years ago.

Not really true. The older generation didn't jump from high buildings roof tops to roof tops. They didn't take selfie from fast moving trains either. Correct me if I am wrong. cheers

You're wrong. 

I was once young, and I jumped from tree to tree, from party to party, and from girl to girl.

I am sure there are lots of things which the new generation do which the old generation didn't do.

But I am also sure that is true the other way around.

I.e. drunk driving was for a long time not see as a serious problem. And until relative recently nobody cared about pollution, poisonous rivers, and many other things which the young generation takes serious today.

 

I don't want to make any generation better or worse than they are. My point is I can understand that the young generation want some fun in their life and they don't take all the rules so serious - just like any young generation before them.

Sorry, I took environmental issues serious when I was young. I took the Meadows report serious, and I saw the upcoming North South conflict. I told them I would be on the side of the Global South - and was called a "terrorist" for that in Germany. 

 

Today's Western youth is a little late. Maybe too late, I don't care anymore.

Don't know about other countries but in the UK the yoof go out and party a lot less now than we did in our day back in Suffolk. Reasons being pubs are more expensive, no one really drinks and drives anymore, taxi's are ridiculously expensive, and the main reason there is simply a lot more home entertainment these days with smart phones, Netflix and so on....the pub culture is not what it was now,. As for nightclubs, do they still exist, the 10 to 2 dance if you got lucky?

 

As for WHO, the one thing Trump has gone right is outing these fraudsters for what they are. Hasn't anyone told them yet that no one takes a blind bit of notice of what they say anymore?

WHO can close the borders. Then Trump's USA would be locked in.
