    News, Kong Rithdee, Published on 30/06/2018

    » Time is not on their side, and not on ours. To beat nature and to outrun time -- and what cruel nature and pitiless time -- we give it everything we have.

    'Boss' strides atop pyramid of injustice

    News, Kong Rithdee, Published on 01/04/2017

    » The boss walks free. The boss is the boss. The boss dines in France and snowboards in Japan. The boss rules the road and tramples the law. In the pyramid of privilege, the boss stays on top. In the food chain of injustice, the boss reminds us again, and again and again, who the boss is.

    When writing is a crime, we all risk exile

    News, Kong Rithdee, Published on 28/02/2015

    » The risks of writing are many, especially when what you write pricks the hot-air balloon of sanctimony: You risk hatred, invective, threats, anonymous phone calls at midnight, mysterious motorcyclists outside your doors and bullets sprayed into your living room. You risk jail terms. But the worst, I imagine, is the risk of banishment, of voluntary exile that’s not actually voluntary. Maybe the worst risk of all hits you once you’ve left on a one-way ticket: the risk of nostalgia.

    Ferrari boys drive us all to distraction

    News, Kong Rithdee, Published on 03/05/2014

    » The Ferrari boys have made our blood boil. Cruising Bangkok’s streets in their super-steeds, the two kids with rich dads, speaking in faux English accents, expound their beliefs on how the country is being ruined and how it should be run, how immoral the Thaksin regime is and how their friendship, forged in battle, is stronger than steel, or something like that. It sounded like they rehearsed the script in front of a mirror for days, for they were so happy to hear the sound of their own voices, to show the world how great it is to be themselves.
