Don’t blame the people

From Thairath, January 6, 2021
Title: Have a vision with an open mind [or] short eyes with narrow mind
Thaksin: The way for the country to survive is to have a powerful constitution and to follow through with capitalism.
On virus: Crisis, power, economy, politics, Covid, gambling den
PM Prayuth: Thai people must review themselves. Some groups avoid protecting themselves.

[Refers to dueling messages new year’s messages. Thaksin sent a recorded message to his followers in Thailand stressing democratic values and capitalism. This cartoonist contrasts this with PM Prayuth who has strongly rebuked people for not taking proper precautions and allowing Covid to arise again. The words on the virus allude to the endemic corruption that allows gambling dens and illegal worker migration which has been behind the new surge in Covid cases.]
