Today, it is all about fakery.
The army says that the bullets on May 10th were fired by fake soldiers who were actually working for the reds. They say their own bullets were fake. The reds say that any reds shot anyone, they were fake reds.
The reds say that the stickets in Silom touting Thaksin as president of a new republic are fake red stickets, put up by fake red shirts. They say that the Silom residents protesting against their presence are fake Silom residents.
They say that the flyers being handed out in Khonkaen demanding that the red shirts get the money they were promised for protesting are actually being handed out by fake red shirts.
The government says that the red shirts' video is a fake video. The red shirts say that the government's video is fake. Both videos have the same title. They are, it seems, mutual fakes.
If both sides are to believed, everything is fake.
May I therefore refer you all to the teachings of the Lord Buddha, who tells us that the entire universe is an illusion.
It may well be that believing it's all fake is the only way to deal with the world.
