The Monarchy and the Thais

The Monarchy and the Thais

Translated by - OMEGA 

 

Never criticize their Monarch model!  The reverence towards the Royalfamily is at the highest level. In homes and shops, publicpaces usually there are photos of the King and his family to be seen. The critic towards them is illegal, not only failed to be tolerated. The road to prison is always open for everyone that has dared to criticize or make fun of the king. If you hear the Thailand’s anthem at 8 am and 6 pm don’t be surprised - that is one more sign of respect towards the King’s family. In such moments the Thais stop all kinds of work and stand still, something that is expected by the tourists as well.

In spite of the mentioned above, the Thais don’t hide their real attitude towards the uprising democracy and quite often openly they criticize the politicians.  Every activity of the politicians, which they think is unfair, provokes them to sharp actions, extending to assault with senior political echelon.
