This disaster puts into perspective the shameful disparities of our global allocation of resources. Earthquakes may not be preventable, but structurally engineering away the massive loss of life is. In the wake of this natural disaster, let's help the people of Bam as we can with compassion and money; but also look to how we can *socially engineer* away inequities caused by national, not natural, fault lines.
