I couldn't comment about the existence of the pictures, with the exception of the globe. Does it mean the kids are taught about these things though?

I somehow doubt it. Anyone I have asked can only tell me the countries that neighbour Thailand, that must be due to the nationalistic brainwashing about battles with their neighbours centuries ago.

Ask kids to point out any other countries and they won't be able to. My son's class (M2) think Africa is a country.

I take your point. It does seem embarrassing that Brits seems to know very little too.

In the clip it seems that one person in particular had no idea of any geography. Is this how little this generation learn at school now?

At best the timing of this action is crass ignorance, at worst...

where is the responsible adult in the room? these children must be surrounded by management, publicists, parents and the show must have a producer as well as a multitude of other staff - did no one think that it might be inappropriate ? bizarre.

"where is the responsible adult in the room? these children..."

 

Children?  Bizarre.

1.  She's not a child, she's 19!

2. It was worn only at a rehearsal.

Western civilization doesn't have any business directing Asians what and what not to wear. It is't their axe to grind.

But not the Thai, children nor adults.

And that isn't Thai bashing!

 

That said, do Thai people know about the Jap occupation of Thailand, the thousands of Thai murdered by the Jap, the bombing of Bangkok?

Sorry for using "Jap", big part of my family were in the camps.

 

Most I know would have some vague idea at best. They don't take an interest in the past like Westerners do.

 

Now ask ladies about LV, GUCCI, Rolex, Chanel etc and they'll quote you all the latest brand ranges, prices and what's hot.

This topic has been done to death over the years on this forum and always elicits the same responses. The ill informed who use this symbol in the Nazi context are just that... ignorant. The ancient Sauvastika used in Hinduism and Buddhism has been around for millennia.

I can't believe people are even arguing about this , a reference to Hindu ancient symbolism? ... LOL.. we all know Thais have no clue ...  the very rare combination of an appalling schooling system and a certain genetic predisposition to mild mental retardation is at the very core of the so called Thainess

 

It's a copy of the Nazi Kreigsmarine (Navy) war flag. Nothing to do with Hinduism.

I am quite sure that they just liked the design and were unaware of its implications .

Yes you are right about that, Asians can wear whatever they want. Of course if Asians are looking for any respect from intelligent people, after wearing this type of garbage, they will not get any.

You are correct, but the Nazi symbol is tilted by 45 degrees, making it infamous.  The symbols that you show are common and mean something totally different.  The reality is that a Japanese "political" organization influenced the adoption of the slightly altered symbol chosen by the third reich.  That 45 degree tilt makes the difference

It is indeed a copy of the German naval flag, but the swastika design on the flag is what is causing the offence to the western observers and confusion to the Thais who understand that the Buddha was a Hindu and it is an ancient symbol they regard as part of their culture.  IMHO They couldn't care less about the Nazis.

Oh, come on. This was mass genocide. Even the thickest westerner is aware of what went on in Cambodia, Tibet, Indonesia and currently in Myanmar.

What do thick westerners know about Asian history before 1950 other than the war with Japan ?
