Some coups are good

From Manager, June 26, 2019
Left: A coup that overthrow the Thaksin’s regime
Right: A coup that overthrow the regime… [meaning the monarchy]
On the grave: Siamese group 2475

[The cartoonist points to the ironic action of the Future Forward Party led by Thanathron that strongly fights against the military and its coups and extols democracy.
On the other hand, he and his movement laud the coup against the absolute monarchy in 1932 as somehow being a symbol of democracy and people power. Instead, like many small nations around the world that precipitously overthrew historic monarchies, the 1932 coup led to decades of rule by repressive military dictatorships.]
