Thirty Thousand Communes And One...

In the latest refinement of the unparalleled system of (direct demagogy) employed in the great (state of mess), Qaddafi has decided to divide the country into a (30000) separate entities or what he calls cummunes. The lone eagle, uniter of Africa, the redeemer of mankind, and the holder of so many imaginary, self-given titles, is making the Libyan people suffer through another crazy idea.
The problem in the greatly (unhappy yamahiriya) is lack of any real democratic process and not how many committees there are. Dividing the country into such huge numbers of so called (basic committees) will only exacerbate the probem. How decisions will ever be made? As we all know, dear reader, that the Libyans, by their nature, are very opinionated, so that the outcome of such process will result into approximately (30000000) different ideas. In this case you will need a lot of computing power in order to make sense of anything, let alone the work that has to be done to reconcile all these different ideas. It is impossible , unpractical ,and just plain stupid. Besides what does the average citizen know about how much money should be allocated for this sector or that.
The (wise man of Africa) is well advised if he leaves the crazy scheme alone. Libya is better off without his wisdom. Libya needs real democracy not some lunatic visions.
