Confused by my nationalism? You’re a traitor!

Confused by my nationalism? You're a traitor! - The Nation, May 11, 2005
...Adviser: Very true, sir. Thanks to you, the Thai people now understand their patriotism better. That you will open the door to cheap foreign products will help our nation’s strength in the long run. Your penchant for international brandnames will also inspire our local manufacturers.
There might be just one little problem, though, sir. Some people are asking why you have not been similarly open when it comes to foreign competition in the telecom market.
Prime minister: People who say things like that don’t love the country, and should hang their heads in shame. Do they really want a big, solid local firm that is the core of our economy to be threatened by foreign competition?...
