Thailand is at an important crossroads with a lot of political challenges ahead. You would have thought that people crying for democracy for years now would be taking part in political discussions in public forums like the letters section of The Nation.

But where are they? Have they given up, rolled over and made way for fanatics who have hijacked Have Your Say with the eternal questions about god – and food? 

Why can’t you stubborn and more or less self-righteous people wait until you are on “the other” side for the answers? 

Just do good, treat others the way you want to be treated and you will join in and get the answers – including on the holy questions about food.
