    Truly unfortunate – and definitely in need of virtue and calm; alas, Thais are not alone in that regard globally…

    TAI has, in the past, elucidated very clearly what’s going on in Thailand, namely a power struggle between the largely rural majority, and an almost exclusively urban minority attempting to seize power. The increasing turmoil in Bangkok simply reflects the minority’s recognition that they will lose the election.

    I just got back from Thailand on Monday. From what I could see the strategy of the opposition is to provoke the military into a coup because they don’t have any hope of winning the election. My sympathies have been more toward the opposition because I think they are the more free market small government party, but I really can’t stomach their strategy of giving up democracy at least for a while until they can stack the deck and put in a better apparatus for controlling the results of the election.
