I'd say the 10's of thousands fleeing the Islamic Terrorists is a good sign that the Libyian's themselves aren't better off.
The current Washing regime had Qaddafi killed and Mubarak removed from office so they could get the terrorist organization, the Muzlim Brotherhood installed...The Muzlim Brotherhood is the head of the beast that created ISIS, al qaeda, Hamas, and every terrorist group out there...Fortunately for Egypt, they got rid of the terrorist Muzlim Brotherhood...
Obama Secret Syria Order Authorizes Support For Rebels

The stability of Libya wasn't all that great before western intervention. Gaddafi managed to build a personal wealth of 200 billion dollars.
He did so by selling Libyan oil and pocketing the money. He gave free stuff to the areas of Libya that were subordinate to him. He came into power by a coup, and he knew from that time he had to spend money to make sure it didn't happen to him.
He is not and never should be remembered as a good guy. He made life good for a small minority of Libya, and hell for the rest.
