Uncle Sam Recommends Democracy


From Komchadluek, April 3, 2016
Uncle Sam: Hey you!!! This is democratic take it…

[This reflects the feelings of some Thais who bristle at U.S. calls for democracy. These people feel that Western-style democracy is not compatible with the Thai world as evidenced by Thaksin’s overreach of power during his time as prime minister. Others feel that U.S. calls for a return to elections completely miss the underlying reasons for the coup–the need to stop Thaksin from returning and the overarching belief that politicians are bound to their own self-interest and cannot help being corrupt.]
