I think people manage , because they are used to it.
It also being a small country is something to take into consideration too.
(Ps: My brother lived in Malta for 2 years, he said it was one of the most beautiful places in the world.)
In Lebanon they have power cuts every day, since the 2006 war.
People pay money to people who supply them with electricity trough generators during the 3-4 hours when the real power cuts out.
It's such a huge income that the politicians haven't done anything to bring the electricity back to 24 hours a day. They are all corrupt.
Some politicians make promises to bring the full electricity back, but none actually do it.
Anyways I was just trying to say that, Lebanon, Malta, are small countries, and are used to it, so I think that's why there's no riots, or
But to be honest I'm not sure the same thing would happen if this happened to U.S.A. .
Ps: I'm not from Lebanon, but have been living here for 5 years, and hear all these stories from my coworkers.
