He still has a nice dream

From Thairath, May 2, 2020
Title: He still has a nice dream
Left of the ropes: Daily suicides
Right of the ropes: From consequence of Covid-19
On the bed: State of emergency

[This cartoon contends that PM Prayuth is purposely uncaring about common people, instead only wanting to prolong the crisis to maintain the state of emergency.
This sort of contention is common in Thai politics–that a politician is purposely taking actions knowing they will hurt people and that they like to hurt people (as opposed to just being neglectful or incompetent).
This is part of the rationale towards being “pushed too far” meaning people are forced to take action against a force that is actively hostile to them.]
