    it would behoove General Prayuth to speed up the process of reconciliation and hold elections.
    How exactly would that behoove Gen Prayuth? He's retiring/retired. He's the prime minister. He has all the power. Nobody can question him or criticize under pain of detention. His action has been blessed from the heavens.

    Until the coup, one of my biggest concerns about Thailand was that the wealthy, upper-middle class are perhaps the least supportive of democracy.
    And it goes much higher than that.

    If you've studied the Roman Republic and understand how their highly-efficient, world-dominating organization began to unravel after military generals seized power beginning around Caesar's time, you might find parallels with Augustus (Octavian), whose ascension ended republic rule. Roman citizens' rights were erased and their voices silenced. The subsequent empire was ruled with brute force and ham-fisted policies and the heady days of the republic were gone forever. Geographically the empire continued to expand, but it was through fear and intimidation rather than inclusion and diplomacy. It became roundly despised and eventually fell in a heap.

      Good comments - I agree.

      The generals will make a spectacle of themselves as they are used to things being done their way - it is easy controlling one's forces . . . a whole economy comprised of 60 million individuals, however, is a different story altogether.

      The best thing they can do is reorganize the election process, there are many examples that work around he world, and hold elections . . . but they won't take anyone else's examples as they are Thai and nothing else can be as good

        There is still time for General Prayuth, who may have Thailand's best interest at heart, to announce an election date, go home and let the electorate decide things for themselves
        Is the author really so naive? Thailand is well pass this stage.

              I am bullish on Thailand for fundamental reasons. I am bearish on western socialist states.

                  Good analogy. Thailand will continue as it has been. Prayuth wants to return the country to the happy times. That is when the elite, were continuously protected from the reality of the outside world, the vast majority of the population pecked for the scraps and everyone knew their place and was "happy".

                    There's already been an election. The NLA held it and Gen Prayuth won.

                    No need for another one.
