Yingluck Shinawatra, the first female Prime Minister of Thailand, may have a pretty face but do not be deceived she is heading Thailand into a socialist direction.
Few people have the interest or patience to discuss hard core Marxist theories such as capitalist bourgoise, exploitaion of surplus labor, or dictatorship of the proletariat. However, do not be fooled, Marxism and many of its forms such as communism, socialism, social democrats, and more are alive and well throughout the world. If there is a common theme with all the forms of marxism is a trend towards a much bigger, much more intrusive, much more controlling, and much more poweful state or government. And away from free markets, capitalism, freedom, and individual and God given rights.
The tide seems to be taking a disturbing direction towards Marxist leaning individuals. The United States recently re-elected Barack Obama a fan of big labor, bigger entitlements, huge debts, and a massive government. Mexico elected Pena Nieto, who wants a one-party state (controlled by him) and his vision to create a massive entitlement state in Mexico. Even small Thailand elected a new prime minster Yingluck Shinawatra, their first female head of state. She believes and has implemented government interventionist policies such as price control and minimum wage.
The common theme with all of these leaders is that their country voted in leaders who want a bigger more intrusive government. When that happens individual freedom is taken away. They are also a reason why there is so much monetary manipulation throughout the world. Fiat currencies all over the world are soon to be going worthless and when that happens, people will turn to what has always been used as money throughout history- gold and silver.
