Another cash-handout unrest

Late last week, due to unfair distribution of "living cost," hundreds of people in post-earthquake Jogja area raged and damaged a kecamatan office in Sleman.

It seems to me that our government REFUSES to learn. They keep using the seemingly politically-smart cash hand-out strategy (which since the late 1990s have taken several names, ranging from Jaring Pengaman Sosial, Bantuan Langsung Tunai, "Jatah Hidup", and now "Living Cost"), but always bumping into social unrest.
