What is Bangkok?
Hit by the most incredibly bad decision ever made and the resulting destruction imaginable of democracy.
What is Bangkok anyway? The least Thai part of all parts of Thailand where it seems like a decades old parallel universe.
We cannot say “in a way that's true”, it is TRUE.. Experimenting with the lives of the poor has distanced Bangkokians from reality and it seems will continue to do so for a long time.
Witnessing the Bangkok that once mystified and enchanted all of us is a thing of history, a memory erased by bad experience and bad decisions.
Witnessing judicial missteps, missteps of integrity, manners and worst of all the will to treat human beings in a humane way.
Events cause you to lose all sense of time. Just another step back into feudal times with yet another crackdown on freedom of expression. Hardly ok for most but ok for a few.
To use a stereotypical over simplification this is Bangkok, what the hell else should we expect.
Oppression is oppression, opinion is not aloud and Thailand is getting sucked dry of integrity.
As with all good things in life, especially in Thailand, democracy and freedom of speech have come to an end, the massive destruction this could cause has yet to be seen.
All we know is what we see right now and it's not a good picture.
