Thailand cannot move forward without solving Fascism

Fascism (play /ˈfæʃɪzəm/) is a radical authoritarian nationalist political ideology.[1][2] Fascists seek rejuvenation of their nation based on commitment to an organic national community where its individuals are united together as one people in national identity by suprapersonal connections of ancestry, culture, and blood through a totalitarian single-party state that seeks the mass mobilization of a nation through discipline, indoctrination, physical education, and eugenics.[3][4] Fascism seeks to purify the nation of foreign influences that are deemed to be causing degeneration of the nation or of not fitting into the national culture.[5] Fascists have commonly presented themselves as politically syncretic—opposing firm association with any section of the left-right spectrum, considering it inadequate to describe their beliefs, and being critical of the left, right, and centre.[6][7] However, fascism’s goal to promote the rule of people deemed innately superior while seeking to purge society of people deemed innately inferior is a prominent far-right stance.[8]
Fascism promotes political violence and war, as forms of direct action that create national regeneration, spirit and vitality.[3][9] Fascists commonly utilize paramilitary organizations for violence against opponents or to overthrow a political system.[10] Fascism opposes multiple ideologies: conservatism, liberalism, and the two major forms of socialismcommunism and social democracy.[11] Fascism claims to represent a synthesis of cohesive ideas previously divided between traditional political ideologies.[12] To achieve its goals, the fascist state purges forces, ideas, people, and systems deemed to be the cause of decadence and degeneration.[13]
The fascist party is a vanguard party designed to initiate a revolution from above and to organize the nation upon fascist principles.[14] The fascist party and state is led by a supreme leader who exercises a dictatorship over the party, the government and other state institutio
ns.[15] Fascism rejects liberal democracy based upon majority rule but fascists deny that they are entirely against democracy.[16] Fascism condemns liberal democracy for basing government legitimacy on quantity rather than quality, and for causing quarreling partisan politics.[17] Fascists claim that their ideology is a trans-class movement, advocating resolution to domestic class conflict within a nation to secure national solidarity.[18] It claims that its goal of cultural nationalization of society emancipates the nation’s proletariat, and promotes the assimilation of all classes into proletarian national culture.[18] While fascism opposes domestic class conflict, fascism believes that bourgeois-proletarian conflict primarily exists in national conflict between proletarian nations versus bourgeois nations; fascism declares its opposition to bourgeois nations and declares its support for the victory of proletarian nations.[19]

Fascists advocate a state-directed, regulated market economy that is dedicated to the nation; the use and primacy of regulated private property and private enterprise contingent upon service to the nation, the use of state enterprise where private enterprise is failing or is inefficient, and autarky. It supports criminalization of strikes by employees and lockouts by employers because it deems these acts as prejudicial to the national community.[20]

BANGKOK – All sides in the current political debate should try to talk to each other and any disagreements should be expressed in line with the law, says Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.
Speaking on her weekly morning talk show today on NBT, Ms Yingluck called all political groups to forgive each other in order to end conflicts and move the country forward.
If political rivals fail to forgive each other, the country will not be able to step forward, she said. Once political certainty takes place, the economy would expand accordingly, she added.
Asked about criticism that the reconciliation bill now before parliament was meant to whitewash her elder brother, fugitive former prime minister Thaksin, Ms Yingluck said it was too soon to discuss things that might happen in the future.
National reconciliation should be discussed through the parliamentary system, she said. Differences should be reviewed to determine which points of the reconciliation bill should be altered, she said.
The prime minister said nobody would try to do anything unacceptable to Thai society.
House sittings postponed indefinitely
The future of the government’s contentious reconciliation bills and constitutional amendments is unclear following a decision to postpone House sittings indefinitely.
House Speaker Somsak Kiatsuranont ordered officials today to send text messages to MPs and senators informing them of his decision.
MPs and Senators had been scheduled to hold a joint sitting on Tuesday to consider constitutionality of the draft charter amendment. MPs were to debate the four reconciliation bills on Wednesday and Thursday.
An attempt to debate the reconciliation bills yesterday collapsed after yellow-shirted protesters from the People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD) barred the gates to parliament and kept Pheu Thai MPs outside.
The PAD opposes the bills, which it sees as an attempt to whitewash the deeds of ousted former prtemier Thaksin Shinawatra so that he can return to Thailand.
The PAD today responded to Mr Somsak’s decision by saying it would cancel the rallies it had planned for the coming week.
Protesters would remain on alert, however.
The PAD issued a statement calling on the yellow-shirts and “people who love the nation” to get ready to return to the streets immediately after receiving a signal from PAD co-leaders.
The cancellation of Tuesday’s planned joint sitting came after the Constitution Court on Friday ordered parliament to suspend its vetting of the charter amendment bill, pending a review of its constitutionality, until the court comes up with its ruling.
It was speculated that the meetings on the reconciliation bills were cancelled because of the House Speaker’s concern about possible political unrest if the meetings continued.
Tul Sitthisomwong, coordinator of the so-called multicolour group, which shares most of the PAD’s views, said his group would also stand down unless the reconciliation bills were revived.
