Amir benefited from spending his adult years in America, while Baba lost all of his power when the Russians took over Afghanistan. Hassan's life was actually a better one under Russian control, but the Hazara became designated for extermination once the Taliban took over. Rahim Khan was affected less than the others, and as a Pashtun, he may have been able to continue living peacefully in Baba's home under Taliban control had he not fled to Pakistan.
