I founda dumb webpage that must be made by some morons... saying:
Freedom of creative expression never killed anyone.
Block injustice. Block corruption. Block disparity.
Can you do that? It is hard, ain't it?
There is no royalty, no king, no queen, no prince and no princess.
All men, women and children are born equal.
This statement indeed does hold water. However, the pictures in that webpage are totally out of the lines. They're totally disrespectful. Monarchy aside, it's still wrong. It's inhumane. Nice people would never ever do such thing. I am deeply offended by the content of that webpage.
Isn't it common sense, common etiquette, and common practice not to hurt other people's feelings? Isn't it a common sense that we, human, should give some respect to other people? As a human, we do not hurt other people just for fun!
To intentionally hurt someone's feeling is psychologically barbaric. Civilized people won't do such thing.
If you have enough kindness, of course you won't intentionally hurt someone. Especially if that "someone" is (or are) stranger(s) that you don't even know and had not harmed you in anyway.
People who have fun trying to make others unhappy, upset, or sad, are, in my opinion, psychopaths. They enjoy hurting others. They enjoy bitterness of others. They are so heartless and inhuman!
Why? Why do people hurt other people?
I can't understand.
Where are their morality?
Don't they ever feel ashamed of themselves?
Would you mock or bad-mouth your friend's father or mother?
I would not. Because I know and understand how they would feel.
When people hurt others' feelings without hesitation, I guess it means that they lackone of the most important social skill; consideration.
Of course I was enraged when I saw that webpage.
But I know it's useless to get angry. Because those barbaric, heartless persons won't care about my feelings anyway.
I better take my time explaining one big misunderstanding in that webpage.
It's about royalty or monarchy that they mentioned there.
First off, I want to beg you foreigners to understand that we do not see his majesty the king just as the monarch. We don't only respect him by the royal title. We don't only love him just because our country is ruled by him.
We admire him, we love him, we respect him with our heart. I would say, emotionally attached. It's more like a sense of being family more than sense of monarchy warshipping. He is dear to us as a father to a child. He is not justa rulerwith political title.In emotional aspect, he's much, much more important to us than any president to his people.
If you're a puppy lover, would you cry or get angry when you see someone kill a dog?
If you're animal lover, would you feel sad or feel upset when someone kill and skin those cute seal pups?
If you're holding something dear, would you get distressed or furious if someone intentionally destroy it?
Of course you (or at least, most people) would. Because we're human. We have feelings, emotion. We're not objects that can't feel or think! WE ARE HUMAN!
Now can you see?
It's simply just a common sensitivity that a human would have.
It has nothing to do with royal sentivity.
I, for one, would slap someone's face if they badmouth my father or mother. Or at least, if I could
content (I meant to say "contain" butgot the wrong word)myself not to do the IMPROPER thing, I would frown at the person.Not to mention badmouthing the king, who is held at the sacred place in my heart. Of course I would be furious by that.
Is it so difficult to feel or acknowledge the reason why so many Thais are angry at that problematic VDO clip?
If one is intelligent enough to use the internet and communicate well with other users, I think one shouldn't be so dull that other people's feelings are beyond one's comprehending.
You know, it is just so, so sad and discouraging to know and see that there are some meanies out there who would leap at every opportunity to *negatively* make fun of some one so much respected by so many people. I can't help but suspect that such kind of persons are not nice, are extremely selfish, and are evil.
Liberty does not mean you can freely do anything even if it harms other people.
Freedom of speech does not justify your abuse of speech.
Now, I might as well say, if a person does notacknowledge the boundary line between liberty and morality violationand keeps crossing the line, they are eitherextremely dumb or just a plain ignorant fool.
If the writer of that mentioned message truly believes that all people are born equal as they wrote, why can't they treat us and our king with respect just the same as they would treat their friends?
We're human too!
We're the same as you!
Since we're all human, treat us like human, just as a human would treat others.
One last question that I want to ask people that made that webpage, people who made that VDO clip, as well as people who are angry at us, Thais, just because some Thais violently (verbally)reacted to someone else's misbehave.
Are you human or are you not?
