My Proposal for a Richer & Peaceful Afghanistan

I know Afghanistan has many pressing issues but we desperately need a release valve for all the pent-up frustration that leads to exile and violence. Life for most Afghans is boring, repititive, terrifying, and tiresome. That is why citizens flee or fight. We cannot afford more brain drain and communal wars. Afghans should consider their wellbeing as a top priority. For example, Bhutan measures prosperity by gauging its citizens' happiness levels, not the GDP. Similarly, if Afghans had more sexual expression and engaged in consensual and sensual human connections, then I’m certain Afghanistan will experience a brain gain and it will be richer and peaceful and a hospitable place to live and travel to.
