100 Words, 100 Days: Day 95. On Libya.

So an entire country rejoices and has the party to end all parties, right? Someone somewhere is playing the soundtrack to The Wizard of Oz and Wicked. After all, no one mourns the wicked.

But once the celebrations wind down, once the dust has been cleared away, once all the bodies have been found and identified, an entire country is faced with an uncertain political future. The Libyans knew what it was they didn’t want. Now they have to work together and find out what it is they do want. It won’t be easy, especially with the world watching.

  1. As my father always said to me sometimes: “It’s easy to tear something down; a lot harder to build something better to replace it.” I wish them well.

  2. I fear that the replacement regime will be much like the ousted one. It is very hard to start a democracy in a place that has never really had one. Yes, I know it’s been done, but this part of the world has had a very different form of government longer than many other countries have existed.

  3. To think they can jump into perfect democracy after 42 is madness. Yet many will pretend it’s not, so we can all move on, and spend no more money trying to actually help the people.
