Everyone here (atleast in Bangkok) thinks of capitalism and Western Capitalism as the same idea. So of course, to them, capitalism is evil. But you should see how much they buy!! There are street vendors covering every single square inch of space, and it's not the Americans and Europeans buying - it's the Thai. For a country where 98.4% of the population are Buddhists, they sure consume a lot of useless crap. Even the monks! (and they love Disney, mickey mouse and donald duck are everywhere - I find that strange).
So, in the meantime, check out the newly designed LPNC site. Thanks a bunch to our new webmistress!
