Again I agree with you and therefore I will tell you a little secret. I know an old and very clever lady in Denmark. She is a very good and decent person and she is well educated and experienced. (She is a lawyer) Once she told me she is ashamed of the average Danes currently negative attitude towards foreigners. (She knows I have a Thai lady) I told her that Thai nationals in Denmark are treated in the same manner as the Queen of Denmark is, and that no Dane would have equal rights in Thailand. However she replied that she did not look to Thailand to see equal rights but was unsatisfied that Denmark only live up to the minimum standards of the international agreements Denmark has committed to. She would like Denmark to lead in the question of equality amongst races and genders as she did before. I completely agree with her.
“If only a Thai could give me a rational response...!!!” Well AJ, maybe Rooster will elaborate on this one, but I guess the answer will be that it is fair that westerners in Thailand settle in house boats on the coast of Thailand, while Thais in the west enjoy equal rights as natives in the US and the EU.
Again; maybe this is the Thai-way and then let it be so, but as far as I am concerned no nation has ever gained anything good from apartheid –politics.
I fear China will become a true democracy before Thailand do.
However I trust there are more and more Thais thinking like SARDINES.
