    By stifling debate of and criticism of the draft charter, the junta is inviting rejection by the Thai people. A sensible approach would be to invite input and discussion, but that presumes that the junta might value opinions other than their own.

    Prayut has still not understood that the Thai population is not the armed forces programmed to obey orders from above without thinking or discussing.

    Don't think so...debate is for a few intellectuals....the masses vote what their bosses tells them...this might be TV, Shinawatras, Democrats....But most people aren't interested into the details.
    So I think the army strategy to ban discussion will work.
    (I am all full for freedom of speech and against any ban....but still it might work for their agenda)

    At least with a few intellectuals discussing the charter, the Thai people could read or see differing viewpoints, criticisms and suggestions and be better informed when they vote - the junta seems keen to avoid this.
