THE LAMBS OF GOD
With this series, I hope to reflect the feelings of utter helplessness that overwhelm the powerless, in which category I include myself and perhaps the vast majority of Thai people. Trapped in the middle between the old power (the royalists and the military) and the new power (the capitalists), we are mere pawns in their struggles for ascendancy. Day in, day out, we are buffeted by the propaganda of both sides; we are raised from the womb to surrender obediently to those who would lead us and dictate our very scary future.
