In my letter confirming my employment, Your Majesty, you claimed you wanted Siam to take its place among the nations of the modern world. You spoke of building something greater than yourself. A country where no man is above the law. Which is why I chose to come here.
You are teacher?
Yes, Your Majesty, I am.
You do not look sufficient of age for scientific teaching. How many years have you?
Enough to know that age and wisdom do not necessarily go hand in hand, Your Majesty.
You have the power to lead your people...
Now is not the time to change the way that things are done!
Well, if not now, then when? How many more people must die so that you might save face?
