Eagle, it doesn't take long to understand how Thailand ticks, a few holidays and the internet you get a very clear picture and why it would be an appropriate country for the likes of you to reside.

Pauly - Who is defending road carnage? I said quite clearly that I agree with you -  there is no excuse for reckless driving. Anyway happy to hear you don't live here. Thailand is still a developing country and it sounds like that is not really your cup of tea.

Pauly44:  I agree with  you. 
In a way it is funny that the people who justify the 'wrong' things in Thailand by using the excuse that Thailand is a 3rd world country, at the same time criticize people here who come up with positive suggestions to contribute for lifting Thailand's status.
Their comments is based on ..'no change thinking'.., called introvert, xenophobia, no open eyes for developments around them?
Take your pick.

Thai people are warm hearted, kind, friendly, helpful people.
However they also suffer the feudal system which give the rich, influential ( criminal or not) with the help of 'officials' illegal ruling power.
There are significant things happening, showing that thai with money and power not want Thailand to progress in the real world.
They just see Thaiand as their backyard in which they can do what they want with all their money/influence.
There are so many examples of that.
Thailand could be a paradise to live for all thai people.
And I mean: ALL.

Eagle & Ematt; About time you two get a room together and whisper sweet nothings!

I don't live in Thailand, I visit on holidays and anyone attempting to defend Thailand's road carnage must be out of touch with reality.

Pauly if you see Thailand as being "uncivilised" (wow... the condescension is breathtaking), why in the world would you choose to live here?? Wouldn't you be much happier in the US? Just curious...

Being from the states I would never completely assimilate with this culture or understand their way of thinking or lack there of, coming from a civilized society I call it as I see it as for the most part I've seen it done better, if that's complaining so be it, parts of Thai culture are charming but the driving culture which is what these comments are based on is completely unacceptable to me, don't fool yourself.

I agree Pauly there is no excuse for reckless driving. However I do think that to make a decision to live in someone else's country, and then to complain about the place constantly, indicates (at the very least) a failure to assimilate and (at worst) cultural arrogance of the highest order.

Pauly44 | 03 May 2017 - 19:35:31

No excuse for reckless driving ematt, just because you are in a foreign country does not automatically require you to accept and or assimilate with all of it's foolishness.

I hope that PN corrects ematt, telling him that comments of readers are not scolds.
Comments are respectful.
