new “Ajarns Watch” alert ! MUST read : Ferrera on Thai politics at FCCT
“For Ajahn Panitan to lecture us on “patience,” “democracy,” and “the rule of law” is
the equivalent of Tiger Woods lecturing us on marital fidelity. Are you kidding me?”
– Federico Ferrara
Lately being tired, bored and pissed with all the shit of Thai politics and therefore lazy to continue blogging on ongoing mess in Thailand, I felt compelled to recommend, as many others before me have done already, an EXCELLENT account of all this shit summed up by someone else, the blogger Khi Kwai (in Thai literally “buffalo shit” – I guess his attempt to convey the American popular jargon “Bullshit”) and author or recently published new book “Thailand Unhinged: Unraveling the Myth of a Thai-Style Democracy”
Federico Ferrara’s talk at last FCCT “show” has impressed and already created an instant reaction in Kokosphere (among bloggers in Thailand and on Thai politics).
where Federico himself has provided the text of his talk and thus made a post on NM as a guest contributor.
this is indeed a CLASSIC ! as Thai Intelligent News blog has rightly calls it, who BTW has kindly posted the whole transcript of Federico Ferrara’s talk at last FCCT “show”.
(actually NM also has a full text)
another blog has provided more details on this FCCT meeting, where he has also posted photos of main speakers as Ferrara, Tanitan, Suranand.
perhaps worth reading related posts where Federico has been quoted or commented on (see comments) :
I especially love the speech Ferrera made, because it exposes fallacies of PAD and of Thai “Ajarns” (as represented by Panitan at FCCT) 😀
so, I think one absolutely must read it !
