Thai People & Culture are Most Definitely Monolithic in nature. The few free spirits are concentrated in tiny bohemian & academic zones in Bangkok. Like the Japanese then …but without their Intelligence.

Perhaps you should meet more Thai and Japanese people then you would have a more nuanced view

That dull collective uniformity would explain the slavish near-total mask wearing here (even with Omicron literally everywhere now), simply not seen anywhere else. 
Mask abandonment will therefore be difficult & painfully slow.
 

wow I'm struggling to keep up so you may need to help me out - so so far your bigotry extends to all black people, all asian people, thai people, (all of whom I think you described previously as having 'inferior cultures').....actually I can't keep up with the hate list tbh but there were a few others.

You take intolerance to whole new levels.

I have serious doubts you no longer need to wear a mask at Changi airport. 

I checked Changi’s website and it clearly states that masks are mandatory

Nope. I know the guy. He lives in my street. He's just a crazy old German dude. 

Are you saying that he has a mental illness and that makes it okay? Still not cool IMO

Does walking around a deserted street wearing a mask and faceshield make you crazy? 

Maybe be does have a degenerative brain disease after all. 😆😆

Don't think so though because I expect we'd have heard about it via the Thai news network. 

I suspect he's spent too much time online reading C19 conspiracy theories. 

Regardless, he still looks like a right plonker! 😆😆😆

I don't think I've seen anyone wearing faceshields in over a year now.

Your general idiocy & lack of basic realism / comprehension is seemingly unlimited.Obvious which cultures are superior or inferior. Except to retards I guess. Evidence right in front of us here daily! Never mind those irritating facts, observations & comparisons though right ? 😡😩

Your retarded naive sixth form politics & worldview that “ all cultures are worthy & equal” is as derisory as it is flagrantly untrue. Your childish and inaccurate use of “ hate” and “ intolerance” should  in my case, be replaced perhaps with “contempt” and “ indifference”. 😎😉

Seen and Read more than enough to form objective views on both, as groups.

Don’t need to repeatedly visit the Arctic to know its quite cold.

Individuals must be judged individually without application of group features.

I'm going to be back in Thailand in six weeks and I've already decided. I'll wear it inside a shop or mall or whatever, but outside in the street,  I'm not going to bother anymore. 

I'm curious to see what happens. I noticed when I was in Thailand last month that in farang tourist areas many people didn't bother including Thais, but where we are based in HH, Pran, there is pretty much 100% compliance. 

I've had enough of it all now though. I'm just not going to bother. I'll still keep one on my arm just in case it's needed, but just play dumb if pulled up over it. 

Mask concealed though not as political armband 😉😩👍or chin hammock😎

lol wow never show your soft flank when up against it or you've already lost.

If tolerance and respect are the trademarks of a retard then sign me up. If hatred, bigotry and pure unbridled racism is the way forward for you as you so frequently display then it is only pity you will receive. Every day in your life must be torture.

So which 'facts' are you referring to ? give us some examples in your little Caucasian utopia. Perhaps you pine for the days when people of different colour had to travel on different buses ?

Yep I firmly believe that ALL cultures are worthy until proven otherwise - because I'm a balanced individual, and not a frothing wide eyed racist, anyone who singles out an entire culture based on individuals, or being different, is indeed pushing the boundaries of retard. For example per head of population the UK has more paedophiles than any nation on earth - is that one of the superior cultures you vaunt ? 

Sleep well

But when you're looking through the eyes of Tommy Robinson you might get it wrong.

But we're making progress - prior you were writing off whole cultures or races, now it appears one or two of them are acceptable to your holy superior caucasian self !

You are beyond tragic.

There's an old German guy lives in the same soi as me, and he's still wearing a face mask and a face shield when he walks around a deserted soi in the afternoon for a walk. 

He looks like a right idiot!

A face shield is just virtue signaling.

A recent YouGov survey in UK found that 70% of people there were in favour of reintroducing the mask mandate in shops so if that is a true reflection of attitudes they are unlikely to avoid countries with mask mandates. People in UK tell me that many people voluntarily wear masks when in shops.

You forgot the part where it said that very few are wearing them every time they shop. 

Isn't that a good example of polling exactly the right people you need to justify what you stand for in your poll? 😂

I am coming in end June and I will go get a skin doctors letter with allergy to face masks and I will not wear face masks in and out of anywhere in BKK. Lets see what happens 

Good luck. 

If there's one place where they don't give a shit about someone's personal problems, it's here. 

Maybe after showing the paper, you'll be required to wear a face shield. You might want to buy an additional rainbow wig and red nose for that. 🤡

Maybe you can join him! 

But then they are 'right' for wearing one if they go together😂

I think 90% ( I can guess numbers too😄)!of potential tourists will only look at entry requirements for prospective holiday destinations like testing and quarantine and won’t care about mask requirements. No matter how much you want Thailand to fail the truth will be revealed in the actual visitor numbers which are currently ramping up not down. A recent YouGov survey in UK found that 70% of people there were in favour of reintroducing the mask mandate in shops so if that is a true reflection of attitudes they are unlikely to avoid countries with mask mandates.

Sorry but I can count on one hand the amount of people I've seen in the UK with masks on in the last six months and they're generally cranks.

I'd be amazed if the UK ever goes back to wearing face masks. 

They got away with it at first because covid was new so people complied but even then begrudgingly. Now no chance. 

My worry is Thailand will try and keep this mandate throughout the high season when the vast majority of tourists will arrive so they can fine them. 

I would wear a mask in shopping centers if I had to but outdoors no way and I think most Europeans would feel the same. Its absolutely pointless to wear one outside

That comment says it all. Why don’t you tell us which cultures are superior?  Wasn’t there a guy about 80 years ago who had very strong views like that?

It is also in Thailand that money can solve everything. No worries.🤣

Sorry I should have included a link to the poll

https://yougov.co.uk/topics/health/articles-reports/2022/05/16/majority-support-return-mandatory-masks-very-few-a?utm_source=Polling+UnPacked&utm_campaign=0186012a23-MAILCHIMP&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_494ca252da-0186012a23-312813833&goal=0_494ca252da-0186012a23-312813833

I don’t think UK will go back to mandatory masks because Boris can’t afford to become any more unpopular than he already is

There was another troll poster here months back, at the height of Covid deaths & panic here, who “ proposed” this absurd “ no mask / medical exemption” / Doctor letter” clown act.

Would have ended up dead in a ditch with letter stuffed somewhere private, within an hour of executing such nonsense here. 

🤣🤣🤣😏😩🥹

Likewise. Rapidly Declining Outdoor Mask Use in Phuket Tourist Areas by Thais & Non/ Thais. No Police in Sight!

” The Spice must flow” local provincial govt. unwritten directive here not to enforce for sure. 😉

You clearly rate your own intelligence highly yet it's completely invisible in your posts. 

Your one dimensional and bigoted disregard of certain sectors of mankind and the incredible, fascinating, diverse cultures that exist within it, is one of the saddest, misguided, unintelligible things I've ever read on here. Whilst your completely haphazard use of emojis has me completely convinced you're genuinely unhinged.

Your posts would start to attract credibility, though you have a very long way to go on that score, if you just replaced the words 'inferior' and 'superior' with 'different'. I cannot even begin to think how I could live my life feeling I was 'superior' to someone else. Because despite a decent education, a relatively successful career, and a very comfortable retirement in my late 40's, I am no 'superior' as a human to the old lady I drove past this morning picking leaves off a tree for her meal. Different for sure, but superior ? of course not. Only dictators, megalomaniacs, and pure racists could believe that.

It is not 'fact' that the Amazon Indian Cultures are inferior - it is only 'fact' in your intolerant head, how do you come to that conclusion ? Because they didn't invent the typewriter ? I wonder, could you survive in dense amazonian forest, or in arid endless deserts with only your wits to help you survive ? Does your inferior/superior league table prioritise technological inventions, medicinal progress (much of which originating in the cultures you despise) and the ability to put rockets on the moon, all incredible achievements, over human being qualities such as sympathy, empathy and integrity amongst hundreds of others ? Is Elon Musk superior to Mother Teresa in your world ? If so you have a desperately sad outlook on life. 

You are clumsily comparing chalk with cheese in order to reach your white supremacist agenda. 

Your “ values” are essentially worthless.

Forced “ Diversity” , Empathy” and ignorantly being “ Different” are not any “ value”. A frickin’ Ant survives the rain forest or desert through evolution not learned skills🤣

Cultural Superiority is Scientific Fact in the same way that Evolution Is. Wearing a Loin Cloth is clearly less advanced than donning a Spacesuit😉😏

I repeatedly evidence & recognize non- white & white Ancient Advanced World Civilizations yet you persist with your pathetic “ racist” & “ white supremacist” rubbish.

Also never said or implied that I personally was superior, although now  you mention it, by accidental benefit of superior culture birthplace, I find that intellectually I am thankfully certainly superior to all the brain dead enslaved backward/ religious people in this world…… 😉

even if they are also western- qualified doctors & scientists etc. … human/ evolutionary mystery why such clever people are so stupid or cowardly/ compliant / complicit. … survival over honour perhaps…..

Mother Teresa was an evil Catholic abuser. Exposed by C. Hitchens along with the entire evil Catholic business. Yes, Musk way superior even if she was a “saint”. 

I am not actually “ unhinged”, “ clumsy” or “intolerant”. You lack the skills & case to properly argue my evidenced points so like all stunted mental midgets you attack the messenger.

You are accordingly now Dismissed. 😌

I wasn’t going to get in the middle of your spat with @oldschooler, but the above statement went too far. What data is this based on please and how do we know all countries are able to report accurate figures? It’s a little like the argument that the US and U.K. have done a crap job with Covid.

Your childishly outraged scribbling are Deluded,Misguided & Foolish ; Emotional Drivel. 

No Case & No Facts Presented.

Predictable Ad Hominem Lefty Shite.

So far he has deludedly offered  :-

White = Bad; Non- White = Good 😩😞

No Case. No Facts. No Evidence. 😩🥹

False Conclusions & Baseless Claims😞

” Data” = pseudo- history fantasies😡

Emotional White Guilt Outrage🤣
