The Libyan Mentality

Democracy. What democracy? After listenning for couple hours to a group of libyans"discussing" the ideas represented in the article posted by Mr. M. Buisier, I came away with the impression that alot of the speakers do not care about the basic element of the democratic process.These are few points worth mentionning:

1.  One should always try to avoid resorting to the "ad hominem"style of arguments. In other words dicuss the person's ideas and you may not ,repeat,may not attack the person's character.
2.  One should try to be more objective in his critisim.
3.  One should be more rational and less emotional.
4.  The speaker shouldnot bring preconcieved notions and pre-judgment to the dicussion table.

Thank you.
