looks like they are a bit confused who they really are... Calling themselves a "mob" one should understand the meaning of the word

This generation is the future and their knowledge and mindset on a much higher level than this incompetent gang who is in charge at the moment. And this reminds me again on a t shirt I saw on a young guy with the writing " you mess with the wrong generation" and was adressed to the actual situation in Thailand.

Keep on going. Needs to be more united all across Thailand. A million people gathering and march in Bangkok would be a start.

The Thai government  should ask themselves a question.

How much face do you need to loose, before you have no face left to save?

It's not a good look.

Maybe I need stronger specs, Alex . . . I didn't see a 'mob' reference. I know where you're coming from, though and agree that protesters, peaceful or aggressive, need to take care how they do things.

In no-Covid times but only on that proviso, that would be a telling public response.

Hard call for sure. But then these people know they are also putting their life potentially on the line in a few ways more than one, but then again Covid is not going away soon, so what choice is there. Maybe at the beginning of next year if the you know who get serious and vaccinate everyone. For my kids I would prefer they take it easy until vaccinated, or we are all family vaccinated. But for here in CM is quite a bit different than BKK and easier to be safe.

It's on some of the signs in other reports, along with "fuck dictator shit" and similar appealing messages.

Probably not the ideal sort of messages for a peaceful protest at the UN.

And some wiser folks might suggest that this fashionable newer generation aren't all that.

Which wiser folk? The salim? The incompetent clowns who are in charge? As I worked for international companies I can assure you they would not get any  job there or can pass a interview. By the way most Thai people with a bit education think the same when they listen to them or watch their performance. And even in the countryside I heard a old woman in a restaurant saying that her buffalo has more brain. The worst performance of all goverments in the Thai history so it would be interesting which wise folks in Thailand say that. But one is sure this folks aren't wise and thats for sure.

So....you're assuming that such wiser folks that I speak of come from the elite/establishment class? 

Wow. 

There are quite a number of independent thinkers around, aside from the clear black and white picture that you paint. You might want to explore outside of your realm.

I am asking which wiser folk you mean? It can't be academics or any intelectual elite because I know what they think.

Might be more pretentious to suggest that all Thais that I know blah blah blah...

Translated as: a shallow and limited exposure to a variety of Thai circles.
