Still On a Slow Boil

Still On a Slow Boil

Thailand Seeks Purity of Motive

Well, here we are at another Friday night, and the army is not in the streets nor is the corrupt government out nor is the new corrupt government in...

Most streets a little light on traffic, but the traffic is still there, although a ride on the fast, clean underground feels like Tokyo in the morning... PACKED!

This little lady was on the bench in front of me today, on the boat-ride up the canals to work:
Working-Class Support for the Elitists
And I note that the working HUM of Bangkok may have slowed to an angry growl, but it is still working, getting work done, and donating practical food-aid to the farmers burned by the Grate Rice Ripoff!

This is one of the public, open-air police points for citizen assistance. There is also a motorcycle stand there with at least SOME of the moto-taxi drivers moving clients for free... and the police were amiable, but bored. Without saying so, they pretty much confirmed that they were under orders NOT to side with or against ANYBODY. 

So, I'll see you tomorrow! Thanks for coming by.

Day 20 - Vote - Violence - Veracity

Day 20 - Vote - Violence - Veracity

Well, the Thai national VOTE has come, with more than minimal VIOLENCE and the semblance, at very least, of VERACITY in reporting.

We had some Yellow-Shirt thugs invade, disrupt and escape from the voting station nearest us (The Mall, Bangkapi), and more on that later.

There were reports of incidents of violence, gunfire and explosions from virtually all regions of Thailand, but these were INCIDENTS, not sustained firefights.

Were ordinary Thai citizens actually violent in their efforts to vote? This was documented today, as the Din Daeng area witnessed the Citizens Nullifying the Nullifier-Wannabees.

Were the YellowShirt faction AND the RedShirt factions both guilty of violence? Yes, gotta be truthful.

Will these elections solve or resolve the Thai situation? Well, answer this truthfully: Can there be POLITICAL SOLUTIONS to the SPIRITUAL PROBLEMS at work in this election? Trustworthiness, justice, truthfulness, honesty, frank and dispassionate consultation to resolve differences; the absolute need for independent investigation of reality by all humans...

We can pass laws to outlaw dishonesty, lying under oath, immorality, greed, avarice, cheating... but honest people don't NEED the laws and dishonest ignore or avoid them...

That Thai citizens WANT a trustworthy government is apparent, with both sides (okay, all Parties acknowledging and agreeing to this) but how can we find motivated, unbiased, intelligent people to help steer Thailand NOW, even as some Thais are looking for ways to use the judiciary to nullify the elections?

If Thailand is not being served with a non-governmental non-government treading water while not having the local/national 'authority' to solve or resolve problems, might this be a good time to ask the Universal House of Justice for help?

The Universal House of Justice is the only global institution capable of and empowered to deliver real HELP in situations like this, and in times like this such help offers VERACITY.
