Well actually I won't and would refer you to the post above (not mine) asking you to reach for your history books and to hang your heads in shame for
some of the absolute rot being spouted on these threads about Libya.
I'm no fan of capitalism - the opposite in fact - but I have a healthy respect for democracy and hope that we, and the Libyans, will actually achieve
it successfully one day.
The overtly oppressive nature of Gaddafi's regime would have eventually led to his downfall - modern and global communication for the average Libyan
citizen simply hastened the inevitable.
We, as you're probably aware, are the slaves of capitalism and propaganda operating under the guise of 'public relations' and
'marketing.'...but....and it's a biggy....we have the vote, choice and the opportunity to participate in the political process. Most of us choose not
to bother and we end of with a bunch of class reject money grubbers in charge - and we wonder why we're being screwed....and then blame it all on
everyone and everything else.
It took 18 days for the Egyptians to change their world, 6 months for the Libyans to change theirs, the Syrians are working on it (fatally) as we
tippy tap type. How long do you think it will be before we can be bothered to change ours?
