Seriously. With a defence budget that refuses to go down (and a new-found propensity for neo-liberalist debt repayment amongst those who once associated with Marxists) whilst people build their houses in dried up river beds (which kill when they're no longer dried), the Pakistani elite continues a state of affairs that melded negligence with the worst sort of prioritisation.
Criminal misallocation of resources is why the population of Pakistan is now some uncountable number north of 180 million, why this number will continue to grow without let or hindrance, and why it was some of the most underprivileged people who had to bear the brunt of this flood. The practise of a near aparthied level of informal classism by the Pakistani elite has led to this state of affairs. The contempt shown for the daily disenfranchised shown casually by members of the elite, is mirrored in national policy, a tendency magnified manifold during military rule which has now led to this state of affairs. If these floods are not enough to change attitudes, then I don't know what is.
