Libya, works on the committee system.
All Libyan citizens can apply to be voted into a committee.
It works something like this....
Say you wanted a new play park in your neighborhood.. You have a local committee who would decide if it was a good idea and can fund the expenditure.
That would then go to the district committee, made up of all the voted leaders of the local committee's in that district and they would decide. From
there it would go to the regional committee, made up of all the leaders of the district committee's in that region. for a play park, it would probably
end there, but there are 2 levels higher, the Supreme committee and then the Family. (Gaddaffi)
Needless to say if accepted, the play park would get built about 2 years later, as all committee's are incredibly slow at making any decision.
The same committee model system works in Industry too.
Not only that, you have to take into account that in some arab and totalitarian governments, no-one likes to take responsibility for anything, because
if it goes wrong, you not only get the blame, but you also lose your job, government house and status within society.. Thats if your lucky, in some
you lose your freedom and or life too.
How do I know this.. Well I lived in Libya until 23rd Feb this year.
Read my ATS thread from Feb 2011
