Libya – Embracing Self-empowerment









Strategy and Application


These two words resonated throughout the e-conference. During the question and answer closing segment a AlAgeli pointed out that absent leaders had misconstrued the reality of what was availed to work with in Libya at the moment. This is terribly unfortunate, but fluid situations, both internationally and in Libya, requires fluid leadership.


Do not wait for the white table cloths and other finery that seems to be required. It is not required. There are many global examples of accomplished countries that are plainly ran without much fanfare, Uruguay is one. They have avoided two major recessions of its region in recent years.


Aside thought here; Sometimes certain sorts of organizations will have extraordinary wait or more hoops than necessary as a controlling device. Of curse everyone knows that, but sometimes through the cloud of dazzle it is forgotten.


The first task at hand is Libya’s well-being and the well-being of the Libyan people. Of course a holistic approach is most sensible. The world is littered with examples skewed focuses, such examples are: an over inflated militant military budget were wars then need to be found or created, an over inflated banking sector were usury will develop, so on and so forth…


Security indeed is a result of socioeconomic and political well-being. However the location defines such with a few notable exceptions that do not require review here. It cannot go unsaid that transparency and addressing corruption significantly improve the over all well-being both politically and socioeconomic.


AlAgeli mentioned water and electric are spotty. And explained that the Libyan citizenry are becoming empowered and correcting the electric issues themselves by purchasing generators. And went on to say that was problematic in some way. What is the problem there is that they do not have solar panels or wind turbines instead of generators and the battery banks that goes with a good independent system. That does not seem to be a rents mentality, or the very poorly choose words “Libyan mentality” used in a negative context. . The Libyan mentality is clearly shown there using what is availed to improve individual and group life. The very same way that a communications network was constructed from what was availed during the campaign. By empowering and encouraging households to create their own power the over all cost of family life is reduced.


Such things may not make corporatist happy, but who is the goal to make happy Libya or put on a show for outsiders?


This is inclusive of water also, With a very quick research I found Anupam Mishra: The ancient ingenuity of water harvestingputting a youthful squad to research, develop, and implement eye pleasing copies would bring mercy to various multilateral difficulties.



And Libya has an opportunity to rethink schooling. Is it really necessary given today’s technology to continue schools that lend themselves to a previous era of lesser technology? Books can be shared digitally, online education can allow for telecommuting, and allow star student to go as fast as they need to keep interest. A plus to a digital based school would be the modern advance of education. It is something to think about and based on the tradition of advanced works



Libya – Embracing Self-empowerment


Libya’s self-empowerment is the very essence of accomplishment. The new men and women of Libya should not be excluded from development. I suggest مدني فيلق


The Civilian Corps (CC)

Organized by sectors.

The leadership fluid depending on the project

The CC corps are to perform civil works.

Such as:

  • networks for schools
  • clinics
  • roads
  • water harvesting projects in communities
  • think tanks – researchers and solution makers
  • website development – for example fostering solar and other types of simple energy.
  • Structural improvements

to name a few


The elders with their experience and the youth with their ability can work together to create what is needed.

What is needed the most and right away can be decided by vote.


Young people 16- 35 should have a choice of sending half their pay home or saved for a yearly, bi-yearly, or longer pay out. Senior staff should have a choice of sending one-quarter of their pay home or saved for a yearly, bi-yearly, or longer pay out


It is possible that the CC could also be deployed for 48 hour simple home raising for newly weds. This could be added later as a benefit for association. Perhaps after so many years of service or a set amount.


As far as the Libyan mentality, there is absolutely nothing wrong with having a monetary benefit from being a Libyan citizen. It is better such goes to the Libyan community than to becoming entangled with usury.


The issue that is heavy is the one of when did a person or group join or show support for the uprising. Though many may have been scared or in an informational blackout situation, considerations to when a person or group joined or supported the uprising is laudable.


Self Empowerment – (New men) Do not wish to be passive in development

Causes of behavior pattern

Libyan mentality – sense of entitlement to Libya’s wealth


It is OK to admit there was not a security sector under Gafaffi.

As for the police, a grid system may as well be used it would probably be more useful and universally understood. City and counties are nice, but they are all just points on a map and one region often blends into another as you cross points. With grid system you could go as minute or as large as needed, depending on the factors at hand such as population, need, events, etc.


The military is an ingrained part of today’s world and the historical world. But what is the military to do? Sure the military is to fight war, but what else can the military do other than kill. They should not only be able to kill. This is an opportunity to create more than just a military that kills, but also perhaps a military that builds.


Many people adore military life, the uniforms, the pomp , the circumstance. It is indeed enjoyable. it is not something that can be done without. And this is an opportunity to create a military that goes beyond base skills of kill. An opportunity to envision a military that can come in and do the larger development projects, quickly and efficiently, like an Amish barn raising, which give way to being able to build a geographical are a town hall in a matter of days instead of weeks. It would be a sight to behold.


What do the young people want? And just as important what do the young people families want?

Family and family life and the means to live family life fully. It is not wrong to develop society that caters to wholesome and plain living.


Much of family life is micro-economy. And can be localize adding stability to sectors. One of the huge down-falls of certain sorts of corporations is their low wages. Those that are employed cannot hire people to do common tasks that they cannot do because of time constraints. And such styles of economy eliminate a vital micro-economy. Most people are satisfied to live simply and should be admired for such. Self-sufficiency in local economies is good. Self-sufficiency in a national economy is also good. Set some of the creative youthful mind to find, enhance, and hone indoor gardens that show care and concern of resources. There is no written rule that box stores are required for an exemplary life.


Everyone’s family is different, but there are some basics everyone needs. What does it take to have a family? What does it take to have a community? These are not difficult question, but sometimes the first steps can seem over whelming.


Libya is young vibrant self-empowering nation with a credible citizenry
