About Chris

Bio

Well, good bye, I refuse to participate in such a biased site. I see now that it was not constructed to share and debate ideas, but to push propaganda. If your new I'm sure you'll find out what I mean within a few days. Conversations that have more than one opinion are often removed, comments with links to sites such as wikipedia to validate facts and positions are just as doomed, and any original idea gets puled for "self-promotion".

Languages

English, French

Areas of Expertise

An on-line, international government
very good points bob, FYI the three I listed were done quickly, just to start off the branch, I don't think this is something that would be viable for one person to draft, only after much community brainstorming. @bruce I think the "section b" bob mentions is more like a place holder, to be further worked out (possibly by the voting system mentioned in the other branch) - I think my vote for a section b definition would probably be the passing of some sort of test, basic math, logic, ect. that would also negate the age range mentioned... if your too old/young to know that 1+1=2 (or similarly valued symbols such as i+i=ii) or that ~if all trees are green and all green things are hot then all trees are hot~ then they may fall under the "restricted rights, section b" I would further suggest if this type of system is used, that section b would also include extra rights, such as "should be defended by those capable"

What are a few things your country could learn from other countries?
Wow, for people claiming my facts are incorrect you sure are leaving your posts void of any. Have you been to Libya? You seem to think you know the people well, do they confide in you or is it just your moral superiority? I am out of touch on a great many things.... but if you think your fully in touch I'm sure your sadly mistaken. At least I try to keep an open mind - your biases are quite clear. I challenge your statements about Libya. For being undereducated, Wikipedia shows they have free and mandatory education (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Education_in_Libya - though it doesn't mention how that education compares) About the poor health care you mention wikipedia also seems to disagree with you yet again (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_in_Libya) Furthermore (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_Libya) shows that they have such a shortage of people without jobs they need to import labor from other countries... Likely the starters of the rebelion. and FYI my friend was old (sorry to those who this statement makes feel ancient ;) ) at least 60+, I'm sure he's been through at least one pre-gaddafi regime, and he had been in canada a while to compare the different systems too.

perhaps, but isn't it typical for an aggressor to declare some "lunatic tyrant" that the world needs to be saved from... is it not also typical for the current world powers to play the sort of black ops campaign eluded to in the video? I've only met one Libyan in my life, but he was singing gaddafi's praises about 10 years ago, in much the same way an American would have JFK. Besides mass-media which I don't trust any further than could throw, his is the only relevant input I've heard before this video. What creditable links do you have to prove the protesters are not influenced by the world powers? a quick google of "Lybia loan" will show you a shocking (if unknown) financial backing.
