Thai man-made floods: “Why, why – tell me why?”

Tell me why does it have to be like this ?
Tell me why is there something I have missed ?
Tell me why cos I don’t understand.
When so many need somebody we don’t give a helping hand.
Tell me why ? why, why do we say we care
Tell me why, why, why do we stand and stare
just tell me why, why, why ?

“Tell Me Why” Declan Galbraith

WHY the biggest floods in Thailand were ALLOWED to happen?! that’s right – ALLOWED, if not PLANNED well in advance. It can no longer be covered up even by MSM that the ongoing disaster was IS man made ! And capitalized on by greedy TNCs – same as earthquake in Haiti, droughts in Australia, fires in Russia, floods in Pakistan…

GMO seeds & other things are spreading in Thailand

Industrialization is changing the dynamics of the global seeds industry…  agricultural

sector is changing hands, although slowly, from the farmers to the seed giants

Already  second  day  I’ve watched  on local Thai  TV  some news  reports,  first by Ch.3  then  by TPBS,  when  they  give  away rice  seeds  to farmers  for FREE. Continue reading

Floods help to pave the way for GMO rice seeds?

Problem-Reaction-Solution

Old yet sure formula by

Roman Emperor Diocletian

of how to control the masses

 

I couldn’t  help it, but decided  to come  out from  my  already too prolonged slumber. Because  as  I can see, there is  a  lack  of coverage  of this  issue  in the  Thai Mainstream  Media. Or even rather opposite:  consistent campaign to  support the efforts by government and  big local and transnational  corporations  to  take under total  control the  rice  production  in Thailand  through  pushing  forward GMO  seeds… Continue reading

“Folk media” Vs Social media

while twitter is important, there are larger

world out there that one needs to talk to

The above epigraph is a quintessence of the main subject of this post, which in other words is: all the statistics about social networks as Facebook as well as any other internet activities do NOT reflect the REALITY of political alignment.

Bangkok battle is over, online battle rages on – Updated on May 27th

It’s getting very ugly on the streets, but is just as ugly and dirtier online

– Jesada Chandraprasert

While the protests might be over, no one can guarantee our safety in cyber space

– Bangkok Post

In previous post I’ve tried to compare 3 main kind of media and their role in Thai political unrest. Now I’ve decided to focus more on what is called “Alternative media“, or more exactly “social media“.

role of different Media in Bangkok war – Updated on Apr 18

There are lies, damn lies, and The Nation

from Twitter

Can you post this rubbish elsewhere?

– Thanong (Nation’s editor) in reply to critical comment on his blog

It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong

– Voltaire

Humans have a natural proclivity to want what they cannot have.

(quote from: “Why Banning Social Media Often Backfires” )

This is an attempt  to provide a comparison of 3 main kinds of Media in their coverage of  current events in Thailand:  Thai MSM (mainstream media),  foreign Media and “alternative Media” (blogs, forums, social networks). of course I am sure there are many people who could do a much better job than me in this – I don’t pretend being any sort of a specialist, merely trying to  share  my own thoughts and what I have  seen so far  in this regard.

Apr 10 Updated: Role of Thai MSM in social unrest; govt curbs alternative media

Abhisit has succeeded in … making himself  look like a dictator ...

– Pravit Rojanaphruk ( Abhisit’s Dictatorial Face Revealed )

The government has gone fully fascist now

– commentator on Thai blog

The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies… Disinformation … makes

us vulnerable to fear, misunderstanding, and doubt, all things that lead to destruction…

Giordano Bruno (Disinformation Tactics)

Only with the help of Twitter yesterday were

non-Thai speakers able to find out what was going on

Richard Barrow


Thai “Democrat” government declares an Emergency situation in Bangkok and once again curbs more ALL Media (as if it wasn’t already under total control)

Live Blogging in English  here and here, here latest (this is of course, apart from AVALANCE or some say tsunami of  info flow all over internet !)

UDD’s own live blogging on Facebook, mostly in Thai (some comments in Engl).

and here is    THE BEST  story I found today  – all the world’s MSM “politically correct” news reports can’t match it !

true face of “Democrat”-bankster Korn

Let’s be clear I am a PAD sympathiser

– Korn Chatikavanij

George Orwell wrote once in 1946 :

Political language …  is designed to make lies sound truthful and  murder respectable, and to give the appearance of solidity to pure wind.

Orwell was talking about English language and politicians  more than a century ago – but one might think it was especially said about Thai “Democrats” ! But hey,  after all  current dashing Thai PM  Abhisit  and his old schoolmate & buddy and presently party-mate and co-minister Korn were educated there in UK, at most prestigious Oxford and surely have learned very well from the experts all the intricate subtleties of  that “political language” (demagoguery, fallacies,  overwhelming and dominating opponent with their language skills and other sophisticated BS ) in all finesse.  Perhaps they’ve been especially groomed so for their present mission of  running the show called “democratic government”. 🙂

I’ve commented on other blog about  role of  current Finance Minister Korn  and today I was surprised (NOT !)  to read about his  latest  anger and hypocrisy :
