We need, generically, Asian behaviour patterns. You see and feel it, that this
is missing.
Doesn’t matter where you are in Europe. I can’t speak for America.

Thailand have different ethnical groups, but thats no problem for them.
They have insurrections in the very south, differently minded people -
Apart from the Buddhists - want to be a part of Malaysia.
I spoke with Thais about the problems in the south. I asked them about their
thoughts about the muslims in Thailand.
They said to me that the attacks on schools or government facilities makes them
really sad. But we can not be angry about the - generic term - “muslims”.
They said me that you have to divide the violent muslims in the
south of Thailand apart from the muslims all over the world or the “neutral”
muslims in Thailand. “We are all Thai”

I mean thats a society. I hope you understand.



If you walk in Thailand, wherever, and pass a group of people eating a meal.
It could happen that they invite you to sit together. They want to share
their food and drinks.
It’s all about give and take. Here in Germany it’s all
about give. I don’t refer to money or unconditional materially things. I just
miss the equalize here.

But you can not change the people. It's probably the Thai-Way of life. And especially it's because they are Buddhists. Show me a Buddhist country in Europe

This anti-muslim attitude that seems to be mostly absent from Thailand is something that’s catching on here in the states - Pure ignorance…

You’re right though, a productive and "caring" society will not place the entire blame on one segment of the population…

Other nations could learn a lesson from these peaceful people…
