Promoting Freedom in an Authoritarian nation

Support for PTP is not a support for Freedom

Supporting PTP is supporting Thaksin, not supporting Freedom. Supporting PTP, Democrats, Junta, PAD or any oppressive group is not supporting Freedom.

Support those that truly seek Freedom in an Authoritarian nation – support Libertarians.

Facebook and the will to protect paid propaganda tools

We recently highlighted the fact that a known agitator, Andrew Spooner, not only posts highly vitrolic and inflamatory Tweets about anyone he percieves to be an opponent, he also proclaims to be objective and ‘keeper of the Truth’. His styl is that what he writes and represents is Truisms and anyone opposing them are evil and bad.

Not then mentioning that his own wife for example was the translator for R. Amsterdam during his last visit to Thailand. R. Amsterdam is known as the disrepruted propaganda and PR lawyer for hire – now hired by Thaksin to shew the western publics view of the events.

So with his wife clearly in bed with the organisation around a political criminal and his hired goons he tries to pretend he is objective and not at all running the arrends of Thaksin? We don’t buy it Mr. Spooner.

But highlighting this in some Facebook posts didn’t go down well with the machinery behind Spooner. They manage to get posts removed from Facebook walls, without notice to writers nor wall-owners, not once but several times.

Imagine the backroom-dealings that goes on for a big corporation to pretend that posts containing specific info mysteriously suffers random deletes hours after they are posted, and no other posts?

And this is the little icy tip that reveils just how big this money-machine that Thaksin wields really is and the amount of influence the propaganda-firms he operates has to their disposal.

Resist the oppression, resist the PR machinery, resist the oppression, resist the censorship.

Chalerm announces that drugs will be erradicated in a year

In the latest series of outright lies and mind-blowing propaganda we today can read what Police Captain Chalerm YuuBamRung, Dep PM, says on the matter of drug contravention.

As posted over at TVF:

Chalerm vows to eradicate drugs in a year

BANGKOK, 25 September 2011 (NNT)-Deputy Prime Minister and Director of National Command Center for Drugs (NCCD), Police Captain Chalerm YuuBamRung, on Saturday presided over a meeting on the practical approach to prevent drugs in the Northern Region at Dusit Island Resort Hotel, Chiang Rai Province.

During the meeting, the Deputy Prime Minister stated that he intended to root out drugs problems in Thailand, adding that efforts must start from blocking the entry of narcotics from neighboring countries, combined with heavy handed and rapid crackdown on local drug rings.

The Deputy Prime Minister stated that he was confident that the police force, under his leadership, would be able to break considerable ground in the “War on Drugs” within 12 months.

Reminds us when Thaksin in in Feb 2003 announced to eradicate drugs in 3 months – an unprecedented slaughter of civilians and mere suspects started a ‘shoot-on-sight’-campaign of extra judicial killings that ended in over 2300 dead, with more than half feared completely innocent. (1)

So with previous announcements stating that they will not – even though they claim the last campaign was supported by everyone – have another ‘shoot-on-sight’-policy one has to wonder what magical recipe they have conjured up now…and couldn’t share with the police and military earlier.

In the US the share brute of jailed non-violent offenders are there because of drug-charges. Even amongst those jailed for violent crimes a very high share is there because of their connection to drugs, often the struggle to control the sale or distribution of it. In the US they have had a War on Drugs for over 80 years.

How has it worked out so far?

Imagine the gut it takes to conjure up proposals that a government will succeed in 1 year (or 3 months) what other nations haven’t been able to to in 80 years – after spending more than the former nations BNP several times over – to stop a trade that in the end shouldn’t be a criminal act – the consumption of recreational drugs.

If the trade and consumption was legalized we would be able to reduce the prison population immensely, have higher quality control of the products (no more or less accidental overdoses) and lower prices of the goods — prices that always goes up during the governments campaigns to stamp out the trade. This would reduce the economical strain that the recreational use can put on a family of an user and prohibit that the family structure collapses with the user risking to become an abuser with reduced income and failing family structure, leading to a life of crime to support their habit.

Dear Mr. Chalerm YuuBamRung, do the right thing, open up treatment centers for the users that cannot handle the self-responsibility and allow other adults to self-regulate their usage.

Singapore officials reveal links between Thaksin and the Crown Prince?

New WikiLeaks released cables relating statements from Singaporean foreign officials to the US State Department. The cables are not yet published online for verification, but where published in the Sunday editions of the Sydney Morning Herald and Melbourne Age.

One of the segments the pick out is a possibly explosive material:

Moving on to Thailand, the newspapers cited cables detailing a September 2008 meeting with Mr Sedney in which Mr Kausikan labels former Thai premier Thaksin Shinawatra as ‘corrupt’, along with ‘everyone else, including the opposition’.

Mr Kausikan apparently also stated that Thaksin ‘made a mistake in pursuing a relationship with the crown prince by paying off the crown prince’s gambling debts’, and warned of continued instability in Thailand.

Read the Straits Times-article on the news here: Straits Times

Added: Additional quote is found over at the source: Sydney Morning Herald

Malaysia’s “dangerous” decline is fuelled by incompetent politicians, Thailand is dogged by corruption and a “very erratic” crown prince, Japan is a “big fat loser” and India is ”stupid”.

What does these revelations mean for us?

A taxi drivers opinion and a Libertarian reflection

While in the taxi from my home to Suvarnabhumi airport I came into conversation with the taxi driver. Or more to say, the taxi driver came into conversation with me as he was very eager to inform me of his views of former PM Thaksin. During this conversation I was met with the repeating of the arguments heard before and somewhere in the back of my mind I couldn’t help but to draw to memory the importance of the taxi radio stations as expressed by others.
