One of the biggest, but least talked about casualties of the May 22 coup is not human, but this abstract thing called logic.
Ever since the military coup, public space for logical and rational political debate has been diminishing.

The Bangkok Military Court on Thursday sentenced three peaceful anti-coup protesters to six months’ imprisonment and fines of 10,000 baht, but with the jail terms suspended.

Woraphon Vichasut, Nattawut Nuchanarot, and Sumet Virojchaiyan took part in anti-coup protests in late May 2014.
