from Thai relatives is that politicians and the government and judges and courts are all corrupt, take bribes, do what lobbyists say to pass laws in favor of corporations and not people.
The Thai philosophy is basically you cannot do anything about it, as even the elections are rigged, so don't worry about what you cannot control and just enjoy life. If you do worry about it and protest or complain, well the thought police will come after you to 're-educate' you in Room 101 so you'll love the government (big brother) anyway. They might even shoot you or arrest you without a warrant and throw you into jail without a trial. So don't speak back and complain and get all negative and post about it all over the Internet and draw attention to yourself so that the government notices it. Just be passive resistant, and do nothing, because if you do something there won't be anything left of you to do something for something else later.
