“But if the West is a place of privilege, people suffer differently there too. Exempt from many of the relentless physical and social obligations necessary in a traditional life for survival, they become spoiled and fragile like overbred dogs; neurotic and prone to a host of emotional crises unknown elsewhere.”

Jason Elliot, An Unexpected Light – Travels in Afghanistan (London: Picador, 1999)
