This is my post that I had also posted in some place.
And I would like to express my opinions on this issue of Thai politics right now.
We should first ask ourselves which majority we are talking about. Minority to respect the majority? Seems that there are still people who refuse to accept the naked truth!
Ladies and Gentlemen, to trace way back to history, I could justify that NOT always, MAJORITY could prove that they are right. You have to, consider the education background, the level of propaganda that are influencing people’s minds and of course, the intelligence of people. The world could not always be an utilitarianism. We cannot justify by saying utilitarianism is the right way for something to be achieved because it serves a greater number of happiness for people. This idea does not apply for this situation in Thai politics. Because I am certain that the minority in this case will never give up until their goals are achieved.
Furthermore, I would like to point out, the majority of human once believe that the world was flat. Who exactly believe that now?
This is not about embarrassment. Look like Fukada-san of Japan, he knows that he was unpopular, no one asked him to step down, he was honourable enough to do that by himself. He may be viewed as irresponsible, but he has the honour to step down when he realise his position.
As for this person who would not step down, and thought it would be an embarrassment, no, i think the western media is beginning to think how “stubborn” he is, how hungry he is to cling on to the power he is holding right now. We are always educated from elementary school until doctoral degree to solve the problem from the ROOT OF THE PROBLEM. Without solving problem from the “root” we will NEVER find out the solution to the problem.
Find what causes this problem to occur. Why demonstrations are being held, why people are protesting, and wanted their goals to be achieved. Ask yourself WHY?
Sadly, some has only blamed those on the surfaces, and not the root of the problem.
If one really willing enough to kindly crack the mystery and be open-minded enough to understand who is the root of the problem, i bet, in just one minute, those demonstrations shall disappear.
