Gaddafi: deluded, demented, dictatorial: never democratic

Posted on: 20 March 2011

This not a Chronicle, Canberra,  item

Whatever else they might boast about the UN, the 22 Member Arab League, the US and its European allies should hold their heads in shame that because their woefully slow speed – which would put giant sloths to blame- in responding to the cries of Libyans who instead of standing and vigorously welcoming democracy to their country, not only caused their death but allowed the megalomaniac dictator and his henchmen to continue in their role?

The death of the Libyans were not as important as the deals they hoped to negotiate that would extend their own power in return for their willingness to co-operate. This of course, is really unadulterated ambition in the guise diplomacy and far removed from the practice of real democracy.

It is obvious that despite their alleged training they have not learned one of life’s most important lessons.  They have not learned that pandering to dictators is a recipe for disaster?

One must ask also, do they lack the moral courage to do what they know is right? They have many examples to learn from. Perhaps it’s because they prefer dictators to those upstarts of democracy who constantly complain about their treatment and promote revolution to get the changes they think necessary to achieve a just society?

Do I do them an injustice? No doubt they think I do, but the more I think about it the more I think not. I fact liken them to people who wouldn’t give CPR to a dying man because they didn’t know whether or not he had a contagious disease.

But also, because of their slowness they have given the megalomaniac a bonus of which I’m sure he will quickly take advantage. The bonus: he will be able to place his well-armed supporters among the ordinary citizenry and make them hostage his delusions of grandeur that he seeks to perpetuate and extend.

And one only need examine recent history to see how people behave when held hostage. One need only think of Hitler, Stalin and his various Satraps and the gamut of megalomaniacs some of who are still riding rough shod over millions of people in countries around the world because people are afraid to speak out.

However, as recent events in Egypt and Tunisia have proved there comes a time when the thought of living as an amusement for a tyrant carries more fear than the thought of dying, if necessary, to escape him.

One can but hope that the allegedly responsible people who should have helped stop that situation developing keep acting quickly to prevent more death as the Libyans pursue democracy and the establishment of a just and humane society.
