Only a wet dream (Revisited)

August 13, 2010

This is an edited version of a short post, originally dated 28th of May 2010. (And I deleted the former one, so apologies..!)

Here it’s how I compare Chinese communists with Thai Democrats…

The Chinese have corrected mistakes of former Socialist and Communist countries and allowed the façade of free-market. They’ve made their communist propaganda a national priority. Chase, prosecute and punish dissent! How different are policies of Communist Party of China (CPC) from policies of Democrat Party? It would be interesting to know how Privy Council comes into mix but I am neither an expert nor insider here.

All in all, in Thailand they say they do not like communism (double-faced lie!), they say they do not propagate (lie again). The Royalist propaganda, along with image worshipping, has been the mainstay in Thai public life for decades.

The Kingdom of Thailand is actually very similar to former communist countries of Europe (in late 70. and 80.) where they had in some cases actually allowed minor quasi parties to contest elections to propone the semblance of plurality, only to win 97% of vote. That’s Democrat Party/PAD’s wet dream, impossible to replicate in any form.

Nonetheless, it seems the Democrat Party prefers to look into the future anyway. Perhaps, the Democrats would like to model themselves according to Chinese Communist Party paradigm of competent macroeconomic policies, along with quashing and censoring dissent by all means, and denying it all the same.

  1. I think the Democrats are just doing what is expected of them, just like the judiciary, the military and the rest of the network.
    They know the agenda – keep the status quo (and block Thaksin).

    The big question I qave is what happens next – I mean after the big event.
    (I’m betting what is supposed to happen per the official script is not what happens – cannot make up my mind whether the baton will be passed to the sister or one of the kids – with the usual upstanding committee members overseeing things)

    Hope this is not too sensitive for you:)
