The College Conspiracy

สารคดีเรื่องนี้น่าสนใจ วิจารณ์เกี่ยวกับความเชื่อที่ว่า การศึกษาจะทำให้คนไปถึงความฝันได้ อนึ่ง สารคดีนี้ สร้างจากข้อมูลที่เกิดขึ้นในอเมริกา ได้แก่ ค่าเล่าเรียน เงินกู้ยืมเพื่อการศึกษา ค่าครองชีพ อัตราเงินเฟ้อ สภาพสังคมและเศรษฐกิจ อัตราว่างงาน ฯลฯ น่าสนใจมาก

Many young college students, hoping to further their education, are deluded into accepting loans that they believe be can be payed once studies are completed and have received their degrees. This documentary explains how we are molded into an expectation of going through the grades of school, attending college and landing the dream job. But the statistics show that student loan debt has now surpassed credit card debt in the U.S., with many of those loans unable to be paid back, proving this scam is yet another system of debt enslavement set up by the banking elite.

Waiting at Don Mueng Airport

A bright, humid Sunday despite the heavy clouds, could barely walk outside without sweating.

Don Mueng airport seems lifeless from outside, an oddity and an imposing white structure. Its been resurrected and renovated due to the terrible congestion of the “new” Suvarnabhumi international airport.

Immigration and customs was a breeze, VAT refund was done quite easily. Authorities looked relaxed, unburdened, some are actually smiling.

There’s a missing element to this equation: the flood of domestic and foreign travellers are missing. Fine with me.

As one traveller from Australia had asked me on Twitter whether DM airport was “dark and dingy” ~ no in fact its quite comfortable and trouble-free, with ample, spacious smoking rooms.

“@RiffRaffBriz: Time flies, still remember clearly. grubby cream paint, constant hustle & bustle, long immigration queues but handy, close to city”

I agree, 2004 was the last time I had passed through DM airport.

Waiting for my AirAsia flight, relaxing, and doing very little to remain comfortable.

Anarchy of Individuality

This twisted world crashing upon itself. The implosion of complacency, growing amidst the tide. Can we claim to be a civilized country when we ourselves are breeding the apathy. Apathy, a monstrous organic decay, is prevalent when governance prioritize conformity to the laws, traditions and religions, above life itself. You can expect society abandoning the individuality for the greater good.

So whats the substitution? Simply, anarchy. The belief that order stimulates the eventual destruction of society by eradicating personal thought, personal freedom and personality itself. I say, screw everything, screw you, screw itself. Without the evolution of the individual, one can never expect the growth of society.

So what are am trying to say? I say what I say because I care what I say, believing in the substance that my voice and views would make a difference to me, and me alone.

I am my own change.
