OMG.  I have only just realized.  The insurrection on the streets, the slowly sinking economy, the political polarization that allows no dialogue … it’s all my fault.

This article deals primarily with the sacrosanct relationship between the electoral process and democracy, and how the PDRC’s attempt to seize power without the electoral mandate that is required by democracy will lead the country into civil war. When the PDRC claimed they were staging a “shutdown” in Bangkok, few anticipated this would also include a shutdown on any meaningful dialogue or conversation, but there you have it (and you can’t say they didn’t warn you in advance).

In such a period of crisis, however, we also need to try harder to look at the bigger picture.
