Tariq Ali's Way Out of Pakistan's Impasse.

There is a way out, but the political and military rulers and their Western backers have always ignored it: serious land reforms, the creation of a proper social infrastructure and the establishment of at least a dozen teacher-training universities to lay the basis for a proper educational system. Malaysia has done so. Why not Pakistan?

Yabbut who's going to bell the cat? That's the basic question. What Pakistan's headed for is a revolution. The question is what the nature and of it will be and when it will happen. Pakistan's polity is varied enough that it could come from any direction. In the late 60s/early 70s the world was going socialist, the person leading it rode that wave and we had a pseudo-revolution that was pseudo-socialist. Today...the obvious option is scary...
