Thailand needs to arrive in 21st century - Thitinan Pongsudhirak

 Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha takes part in the royal cremation ceremony for the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej on Oct 26. The military-monarchy symbiotic relationship arose from Cold War conditions and circumstances.

Thai politics is fundamentally not about the colours of yellow versus red or of democratic rule against military dictatorship. At its core, modern Thailand is about the socio-political and developmental totality of the past seven decades from 1947 to 2017 during the 9th reign, divided into the first five and the last two, demarcated by the Cold War and the 21st century. For Thailand to arrive in the 21st century, it needs to reconcile the overlapping forces of these two eras that now harbour conflicting interests and preferences through compromise and mutual accommodation. This is now the existential task ahead after King Bhumibol Adulyadej's glorious reign.
