Firmly in Power

January 8, 2012

No one truly reasonable can argue that Thammasat University law lecturer and spokesperson of the Nitirat group Worachet Pakeerat  isn’t right when he says “people who talk about the institution in a contemptuous or offensive way will be punished, but we need to amend the law so these people receive reasonable penalties.”

Those who  oppose any changes of the lese majeste laws do not do give an inch simply because they’re scared that many smart Thais will take a mile – not hurling abuse, but discussing, and eventually disassembling the Monarchy to its very core, only to discover that all those decades of semi-divinity, respect, reverence and sufficiency economy were only in place to keep the ruling oligarchy firmly in power.
