They want us to believe that there is nothing we can do about the descent into authoritarian servitude that lese majeste is really all about. The stupidity of it all, the great tragedy, the loss of what was once so solid, bright and reassuring about Thailand is all that remains. Memories forgotten by the blind legion of yellow clad zealots. All the while the brutality is reinforced.
I am nobody’s king and nobody is mine. Sooner or later, we have to take sides against Thailand’s lese majeste insanity if we are to remain human, that is, if we want to remain human and want to be seen to be human to an ever increasing number of humans who see Thailand’s behavior as inhuman. — Declan Lakes
