The drama of 'attitude adjustment'

Re: "How my attitude was 'adjusted' by the NCPO", Burning Issue, September 23.
Pravit Rojanaphruk’s description of his three-day experience is revealing, but the tale might be somewhat over-dramatised.
Khun Pravit has my fullest sympathy regarding the three-day ordeal. Many of us would uphold the spirit of Voltaire’s defence of freedom of speech: “I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.” However, I am not sure I would be willing to defend with my life his right to describe the retorts he made to his captors and his dramatic claim to have contracted a case of Stockholm syndrome. It all strikes me as a drama for a cause, more than a fight for freedom of expression.
