    One Marvel-ous adventure

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 01/05/2015

    » Marvel aspires to set their superheroes in stone, marble, or bronze, like a monumental statue of the ancient gods, or of tireless labourers that the world can't live without. The end credits of Avengers: Age Of Ultron testifies to that ambition. Like in a Soviet sculpture exalting workers, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, The Hulk — who did I forget? — yes, the new additions Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and Vision, appear as sombre figures set in a giant, smooth slab of stone, eyes gazing intently into the future.

    When history becomes just a hazy dream

    News, Kong Rithdee, Published on 22/04/2017

    » Who controls the past, controls the future. Who controls the present (tada!) controls the past. In summary, the military, like quantum physicists or mad sorcerers, controls time: The past, present, future, ad infinitum.

    The sad saga of southern discomfort

    Oped, Kong Rithdee, Published on 04/03/2017

    » We thought never again, but we’re always wrong. The godless attack and murder of four people, including an eight-year-old boy, in Narathiwat on Thursday was the latest reminder of the longstanding deep South anguish. The death toll is nearly 6,800 and counting. A beautiful region has been cursed for 13 years and counting. A land of many faiths is being threatened by faithless goons, and the urge among authorities to tighten their grip will fan the flames of violence.

    A backpack, bombs and a land of fear

    News, Kong Rithdee, Published on 10/09/2016

    » The photo just broke your heart: A little yellow backpack with a cartoon pattern, crumpled on the road in Narathiwat after a bomb. We can imagine the rest. A few minutes before, it must have been slung on the back of a five-year-old girl before a deadly blast knocked it off. She was killed along with her father, Mayeng Wohbah, at 8.25am outside a school in Tak Bai, a place that has seen too many deaths, adults and children, over many years.

    Where history begins anew

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 04/01/2016

    » When does history begin? We are at the start of 2016, when it's still not too late to say Happy New Year, and our perception of time and space has hit a refresh button. The year, new and old, is a necessary illusion that gives us a sense of order in this disorderly universe. What has happened has become "history", but history is not always in the past, not always dictated by the BC, AD, the Buddhist BE or the Islamic AH.

    Mindanao offers lessons for South

    News, Kong Rithdee, Published on 05/04/2014

    » There are signs of uncertainty. No, not the red-shirt rendezvous on Utthayan Road or the summit of the Suthep Thaugsuban-led movements at Lumpini Park, both happening with egoistic drum rolling today. As usual, Bangkok politics has the kind of narcissism and surreal influence that monopolises the headlines and consigns other struggles — more real, more fatal struggles — to the attic of our attention. If the way forward is decentralisation, let’s start by at least trying to look further afield than Bangkok’s face-off and the oratory salvoes of Mr Suthep and Jatuporn Prompan.

    The gaul of it

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 24/02/2012

    » Come Monday morning, the winter rite of the Oscars will be executed in all its blazing, self-congratulatory aura, and after three hours of pompous live broadcast and in-jokes we'll return to our graves happily thinking about other fine movies the world has to offer. In the global peddling of moving images, we're forced to be fixated with Tinseltown's annual polling, an extensive survey of American taste and preferences, in which 6,000 people cast their precious votes to determine the worldwide conversation about the value of good movies.
