Words are a tool to convey meanings of love and care as well as hate, discrimination and indifference. Use them well.

How to Win Political Battles Peacefully: An American Example

=======================================================

Thailand became a failed state, despite her abundance in natural resources. Reasons of this failure dealt with multiple factors, some of those were belief in democracy and patience.

During my 6 years in the US for my study, I exposed myself to the American society thereby I learnt something from it.... A part of that is their faith in democracy and how they value their freedom. During the past 50 years, there are constantly "battles" in America... One of which is about incorporating their faith in Christianity into the entire society.

You might be surprised by my previous sentence. Yes, America is considered to be a christian country, however, christian belief and faith have not been fully embedded into the society (i.e. homosexuality, gay marriage, stem cell research, abortion and so on). These made many Christian Americans feel very bitter on their government and country.

They fought, both in public and elsewhere.... There was loss, but, most of those was not blood...

One of their key strategies to win the battles of faith and belief dealt with winning the vote in the Supreme Court. America is a country ruled by laws. This is the most important concept which almost all of the Americans are believing. Thereby, the Supreme Court is the most important institute/organization which decides, in one particular issue, this is lawful or not lawful. And, its decision is final; everyone on the land must listen, obey, enforce, and live with it.

If I'm not mistaken, the Supreme Court consists of 9 judge members who can retain their post until they are dead or resign. During the past 40 years, a group of the American christian bit by bit has tried to involve in the process... Up to present, it has 5 out of 9 members who share the same belief as theirs.

When looking back into our country, we have problems, we have things that we do not like even despise, we can solve problems using brute force or subordination. Yes, we can.... and, actually, we already did that at a regular basis. We marched on the street when we felt upset. We burnt our houses down when we got angry. We crusified our own countrymen and branded them as traitors. What we did are all violence, pain, killing and death.

When looking at the outcomes of those approaches in our society nowadays, what do we see in this?

For me, what I saw is chaos and anarchy. This is not a good future for my children or your children or younger generations. One day, when they grow up, they will curse us, use us as a bad example, and perhaps despise us.

If we want to solve problems, the above example is a good one that we can use to come up with the solution that can solve our problems for many hundreds of years. We got to build an ethical system, learn the system, and play by its rules.

Best wishes,
Manupat Lohitnavy, PhD

I'm agreed with you, but I see it will not be easy to change.

For my opinion, Thai politic is like you have a chronic disease. Its might subside but cannot be cure. When you take care of yourself, you can control of your disease. Vice versa when you become weak and neglect yourself, your disease is exacerbated and you are infected by your own normal flora.

=================================
Note: My life has been intertwined with works and many others. New responsibility has emerged, resulting less and less time for my ordinary life. Although, a love to write is still intact... But having less time is related to having less imagination.... Therefore, I could not come up with new writings for quite some times.

It might be a good time for me to leave this forum for moment.... Please take it as Mr. A.T. is having a sabbactatical leave or something like that....

As noted above, my love to write is still the same... and will not be changed. Sometimes somehow, I hope I could come back and give some thoughts in this blog once more.

Cheers,
Mr. A.T.

Hello,

My pen-name in Pantip is amatuer translator. Actually, I'm a lousy translator with lame translation. My pen-name is somewhat misleading, I have no background in linguistics what-so-ever. Anyway I love to read, write and communicate with people...

Reading is my most favorite hobby. I read everything from shopping bags to articles in theoretical physics. I do research and teaching for my living. So, reading, writing, thinking and doing research works are my everyday routine.

I would like to define myself as a person who is accepting new ideas and adopting those into my way of life.

I believe in power of knowledge/education. I think every society can be a better society with knowledge. Ignorance can be dispelled by it. Humanity can live sustainably and harmoniously with each other along with its biosphere with understandings in the nature surrounding it.

Apart from my philosophical thoughts reflecting who I am, I can tell you something I like or love in particular;

I love dogs.... Particularly, labradore retrievers.... One day, I would like to spend my time and life with them as a big part of my family.

Zhuge Liang is my hero. With his wisdom and faithfulness, he led a tiny army to a mighty and formidable kingdom. He left his humble residence with a hope to come back. But, sadly, he had never returned and died far far away from home in a horse carriage in a battle field. If I could choose where I would, I would say where-ever my lovely wife was nearby.

I value happiness and my family as my first priority. My profession and my philosophy come in the second. Pursuit in wealth has never been in my desire.

I'm glad to be your friend, and look forward to seeing you around krub.

Best wishes,
A.T.
