Bangkok Post, I accuse : « Intellectual cowardice and dishonesty ! »
Bangkok Post Newspaper
[For the attention of the Direction]
Ladies and Gentlemen,
The negative contents of your e-mail of 27 inst. informing me proudly not to have read my message having for object “Thai people and racism !”, which was nevertheless accompanied with my letter of 19 inst., sent in registered mail with acknowledgement of receipt to the royal Embassy of Thailand in France, gives me the opportunity to establish the intellectual cowardice and dishonesty of your daily paper, quite as I had the occasion to do it for several important French national makers of opinion, namely Le Monde and Le Figaro in particular, also refusing to discuss on the bottom by confronting their partisan relative truths with THE absolute eternal truth, that of the Buddha, the Christ and Spinoza in particular, which we shall discuss, when you will consider it useful.
Indeed, your intellectual cowardice becomes established of itself by your refusal to read my message, only by the fact of seeing its necessarily visible and disturbing object.
As for your intellectual dishonesty, it results from the inherent disinformation of the Thai people, who can so continue to practice, on a large scale, the discrimination against old men called “papa”, such as amply developed in the letter translated into English, that I will send you, if you answer me, for not giving you a new opportunity to ignore it; but by there, within your editorial staff, somebody will certainly able of translating it from French in Thai.
I am held there, because of your possible new refusal to be read, and send you nevertheless, Ladies and Gentlemen, my philosophical greetings, except for yourselves or to whoever, obviously, to demonstrate the opposite.
