More and less

“A colleague at the university remarked that the capital’s citizenry probably feels reform of Bangkok’s environment is hopeless, but reform of the political system is still possible. In this connection, there seems to be a growing impatience on the part of the Bangkok populace with the corruption and inefficiency of parliamentary democracy. Some have suggested it would better serve the Thai body politic if there were more patience with the relatively controlled chaos of the democratic process and less with the uncontrolled chaos of the environment.”

William Klausner, “Thai Culture in Transition”, Bangkok 1997, p.117.
