Thai Military Launches Coup, Takes Power From Prime Minister Thaksin, Tuesday, September 19, 2006
The sudden, well-orchestrated coup — a throwback to an unsettled era in Thailand — was likely to spark both enthusiasm and criticism at home and abroad. The military said it would soon return power to a democratic government but did not say when.
Initially, the coup went largely unnoticed in Thailand's popular tourist districts, where foreigners packed bars and cabarets oblivious to the activity about two miles away. But word raced among street vendors hawking T-shirts who packed up their carts quickly and started heading home.
Later, several hundred soldiers were deployed at government installations and major intersections in Bangkok.
The bloodless coup was the first overt military intervention in the Thai political scene since 1991, when an attempt by Prime Minister Suchinda Kraprayoon, a military general, to retain power was countered by street demonstrations and Suchinda's ouster the following year.

I do not mean a New World Order under a one world government. I simply mean humans working together meeting each others needs and retaining an actual sense of real society. A literal sense of "back to basics".
Economical Tangent: There is no such thing as "Sustainable Growth" which is what is taught in American Economics. Even relating to biological entities and any structure ever built. Any entity that continues the grow will exceed it's capability to sustain itself and will collapse. $410 Billion Gov't Spending Spree anyone ;-)
