1. No because corrupt politicians could be replaced by corrupt generals. The same problem, but even worse.

  2. While that might be a true statement, David, nobody said anything about generals. I meant what I said: “the people.” unlike the Taiwanese, the Thai people have come to understand how corruption has crippled their development. The Thais went out in force and cast a “no vote” in order to show their dissatisfaction with the new PM. The King himself asked the military to remove the corrupt PM. Here in Taiwan, the higher you go, the more corrupt officials are. Until the Taiwanese themselves realize that corruption is bad and not just a way to get rich, nothing will change.

    By definition, all politicians are corrupt, so i don’t take politics seriously.
