Government on slow boil

From Arun, August 4, 2020
Title: Frog is now boiled (takes too long to realize).
On the flame: Flash mob

[We think this refers to the government and its supporters who do not think that flash mobs (or protests) conducted by youth to call for annulling the current constitution and writing a new one will have any impact. The cartoon shows the proverb of the frog being boiled–contending, if the heat slowly increases, the frog will not realize it. This is to represent the government and military who seem confident they can remain firmly in control. Associated with this is the Thai proverb of the frog inside the coconut shell, meaning a person who does not know the wider world and only believes the reality of their little world in the shell.]
