The Collapse Is Pretty Total Already

In Somalia, an Exodus of the Educated

. . . In the past year, more than 100,000 Somalis have fled the conflict in the Horn of Africa nation, a figure that includes a crucial subset of people who have been deliberately chased away — the professional class.

 . . .

The result is that the people considered central to preventing the country’s total collapse are exiled in hotel rooms from Nairobi to Dubai, while others are joining the vast Somali diaspora across the United States, Canada, Sweden and other countries.

What do they mean, “preventing the country’s total collapse”? Can it really get worse?
