Re: “‘Co­conut shell’ stu­dents find their voice”, (Opin­ion, Nov 13)

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the brave young minds of Suanku­larb, who show us, yet again, that it is the youth of Thai­land who set the ex­am­ple of ex­cel­lence in hon­esty, in open-mind­ed­ness, in crit­i­cal think­ing and in re­spect for all such demo­cratic values. In a word, it is Thai youth, high school and univer­sity stu­dents, who set the moral ex­am­ple from which their be­nighted el­ders, stuck in their sti­fling co­conut shells of re­pres­sive, wil­ful ig­no­rance, need to learn. Nat­u­rally, the bull­frogs are croak­ing loudly at this timely dis­tur­bance to their slum­ber­ing moral fac­ul­ties. Let us hope their chil­dren will con­tinue to rebel against the bad old ways of their el­ders. FELIX QUI
