You should read “Planning a coup ? Here’s how”, an article from Philip Golingai. He’s a journalist working for a malaysian newspaper.
I like very much this piece. Having the head into thai politics almost on a daily basis, it’s actually quite difficult to keep the broad picture in mind.
We have such a weak and short memory… It’s our curse.
Short stories are a very good mean to refresh it and to put the common sense back into its boots.
From the “happy military coup” in september 2006 to the Frankenstein coup 2 weeks ago, it’s a striking summary of Thailand’s history.
At the end, you’ll feel the “invisible hand”.
You might even be able to touch it.
