    Rooted in feudalism

    Oped, Postbag, Published on 23/01/2021

    » I must say Prof Thitinan Pongsudhirak ("What the 'Pimrypie' sensation foretells", Opinion, Jan 22) correctly exposes the flaws of Thai hierarchical society (Opinion, Jan 22). In spite of the superhighways, BTS, malls, majestic wats and palaces, Thailand remains rooted in its feudal past. It is the same in a few other countries surrounding Thailand.

    Tax e-cigarettes

    » We can clearly see that making gambling illegal is not effective in stopping gambling among Thai people at all. A complete ban is considered a measure that is too extreme without taking into account the social context or the needs of the people in the country.

A few countries did not follow the Chinese path, including Sweden, which was heavily criticised for leaving schools, restaurants, etc. open.

    PM deserves more credit

    News, Postbag, Published on 17/01/2021

    » Chairith Yonpiam in his Jan 16 article, "PM's words ring hollow over scandals", fails to give the Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha credit for his one consistently demonstrated skill: he excels at making up lame excuses that some people, amazing but true, actually manage to believe, or at least pretend to believe.

    All too familiar

    Oped, Postbag, Published on 16/01/2021

    » Prof Thitinan Pongsudhirak suggests that the acceptance of corrupt and illegal practices by certain authorities is due to a lack of a moral backstop that once existed. A quick look at history would suggest that very little has actually changed, only that the publication of these illegal activities now makes it to public attention via foreign social media.
