IN the past, harmony was a word often used to describe the Thai way of life. People worked together for the benefit of the country as a whole. Clearly, that’s not the case today. Greed, ambition and corruption are not unknown here, but in recent years they’ve been taken to a much higher and more dangerous level. Far more still unites Thailand than divides it. Those responsible for the current turmoil – and we all know who they are – should back off immediately, and permanently, for the sake of the nation.
