[The cartoonist notes the change in the younger generation–or at least the current protesters’–perception towards the monarchy.
During the political uprising on October 14, 1973 to overthrow the military dictatorship, the King was lauded by students as it was said he helped protesters who were being attacked during the crackdown.
However, in the present protests, the cartoonist notes that the monarchy has been attacked by protesters. This has led to warnings from the military and even Red Shirt leaders to leave the monarchy out of protests.]
