The King's Successor

However, the present crisis in the Southeast Asian nation is beginning to have crippling effects on the country's internal stability. Many factors are present in Thailand that make the nation ripe for serious political, social, and economic upheaval and many observers within the country and abroad are concerned about the Golden Kingdom's future. Here are the top 10 reasons why analysts are so concerned:Dog t-shirts are a great way


Yellow Shirts hyneer

Thailand is divided along economic and social lines. One of the major representations of this is a movement called the People's Alliance for Democracy, or, Yellow Shirts. The Yellow Shirts, made up mostly of Thailand's educated middle-upper class, were originally formed in 2005 to protest against the country's former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, whom the group accused of corruption. The Yellow Shirts are now protesting the recent elections and the authority of the current Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, Thaksin's sister.Grammar and Style


Red Shirts
The other group in Thailand's divided social struggle, United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship, or Red Shirts, is made up of mostly poor, rural Thais. The organization was formed as a response to the Yellow Shirt movement and they are struggling to keep the Shinawatra family in power. Both Thanksin Shinawatra and his sister Yingluck were elected on populist policies that were favoured by the rural class due to the policies' pro-poor economic nature.

The King jkstellacactus

Definitely the most important factor in Thailand's crisis is King Bhumibol Adulyadej. The 86 year old monarch is the longest-serving current head of state in the world and the most revered and respected individual in Thailand. The Thai population is divided among ethnic, economic, social, and political lines, but the King is what brings them all together. Unfortunately, the King's age and state of health are a concern, and his eventual passing will likely mean the demise of the only glue that is holding Thailand together.

The major political problem with King Bhumibol's eventual passing is the fact that his most likely successor is very unpopular. Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn is a popular topic of discussion in Thailand and his private life is the subject of many rumours. Many Thais believe that he has been involved in everything from living a playboy lifestyle to business relations with ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra. There are many other, much darker rumours floating around that you can learn by talking to people within the country.
