TIT – New bill threatens ‘unlicensed thoughts’

On the heels the discussion of a very controversial new media bill, one that would only allow ‘licensed’ journalists to do their work and punish journalists without official licenses (which would be issued by the government), Thailand has quietly put forward another bill that, so far, went unnoticed. Thought licensing While the idea of journalists having to obtain an official license that would be given out by the government seems like a step towards more censorship and media control the second new bill that is said to be put forward…

Thai linguists delete word from dictionary

The F-Word section is dedicated to critical thoughts and opinions. The F-Word stands for Farang Word in this case since a lot of issues are usually “solved” by saying we have different cultural backgrounds. Sometimes that just doesn’t do the trick.
