Witnessing the Transition to fear in Tripoli

Axis of Logic
Libya is a very complex situation. One cannot possibly arrive at conclusions without doing extensive research and speaking to Libyans and Independent journalists who have been there. Far too much has been made of Gaddafi. This is part of the mainstream media psy-ops to distract people from the real threat Libya posed.
Gaddafi has held no official position since 1977.
He is honored as the brother leader of the revolution.
The official Libyan government is based on a system of direct democracy, where people's committees, the tribal councils, women's councils are the core or center of power. Their decisions guide policies for the entire nation. The Green Book is a guideline outlining how the Libyan system works and from both a political and philosophical perspective, is well worth taking the time to read. Download Col. Gaddafi's Green Book
There is much common ground between the Jamahiryah and the Bolivarian revolution.
Libya is the great impediment, one of the last strongholds against the "New World Order." It represents the antithesis of the globalist vision or the world, which is a vision I can assure you, none of us would support if we understood the full and terrible scope of it. Have no illusions. This is not just about Libya. This is a brutal war for total global hegemony by an elite few at the expense of humanity and this planet.
Lizzie has given us a glimpse of her last impressions of Tripoli, not a treatise on the entire Libyan situation. She never stated that it was.
As it stands, her article is brilliant, honest, sensitive and effectively conveys the sorrow and genuine concern she feels for the people she has come to love who are now in great danger.
It whispers hints of the Libya that was and may yet again be, but she offers us a choice of either embracing our humanity, accepting that in our collective struggle for sovereignty and freedom, we are all "Libyans", or clinging to prejudice, continuing to support the NWO in all its manifold constructs as it closes in to snuff out the last ray of light.
With the events in Venezuela, Africa, the Middle East and the encroaching police state and economic hardships at home, people will be inclined to unite and resist rather than fight against each other.
