As bad as things are in the United States and other western countries when it comes to lockdowns and rights being suspended, at least we are not in Afghanistan. This week a man was whipped for allegedly stealing a phone.

Reporters have also been abused.

Hundreds of thousands of women entered the workforce, but the Taliban, since returning to power on Aug. 15, has shown no inclination to honor their rights.

As soon as possible is the answer given regularly, which, of course, is no answer at all.
