Where simple truths are never pronounced

September 29, 2011

Federico Ferrara’s paper “L’état, ce n’est plus moi: Popular Sovereignty and Citizenship over a Century of Thai Political Development” is an absorbing read; and what is yet more worthwhile, it uncovers a recent history of Thailand in light so piercing that many of those who follow the country’s developments might feel blinded at first…, or perhaps hear it ringing true in rather bizarrely uncomfortable flashbacks of “Oh, wait a minute, that’s what I’ve always thought!” Thought and never said – because that’s what Thailand is truly about.
The country of unseen and unheard. The country where simple truths are never pronounced.
