Synopsis

A nation’s government should create order. We put faith in government to uphold and maintain the well-being and safety of its citizens. Currently, in Afghanistan, the government does not seem to maintain anything at all. In Afghanistan, starving children cry out in hunger. The government does not provide food, shelter, or schools. The country’s opium production rate has doubled over the course of the past two years. Does a country in such cultural uproar have a government at all? Who is to blame? How should the problem be fixed? These are the questions posed and answered in Wazhma Khalili’s Rough Road. Khalili calls for a stop to the authoritative abuse that runs rampant in the Afghan government. She wants to discover and correct fraud and punish disreputable behavior—even among the nation’s leaders. Khalili maintains that the government of Afghanistan is not “government” at all. A government should protect its people, not pull them down into poverty and leave the hungry starving in the streets. It is time for a change in Afghanistan. It will take bravery, strength, and faith, but it must happen in order for the country to survive.
