Memory Lane Monday: Thailand and Too Much Democracy

Check out those hearts.One of 2014's coups.You know what you can have too much of? Well, according to Thailand’s Coup Master Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O-Cha the answer to this one is, “Democracy.”

On March 23rd, 2015 (around the time period when he banned public discussion about democracy), this fashion strongman lamented to a crowd that, "In the past, our society experienced many problems, because we were too democratic."

After all, if Thailand wasn’t 99% democratic, "We'd jail (our opponents) and put them before the firing squad. Then it would all be over and I wouldn't have to lie awake at night."A dictator in lilac?

Jeez, talk about night terrors.

Two days later, Prayut Chan-O-Cha channeled Rahm Emanuel a bit when he told reporters to help him, “Create love and unity. We've come to this point anyway, so let's turn a crisis into an opportunity."

So Thailand, how is that non-coup-coup working out for you?
