comment What was Libya's form of direct democracy (Jamahiria) like in practice?
Felix, your statement doesn't really add anything to the question: Yes, it's evident that things were quite different from the ideals held up in the Green Book, thus the point of my question. Even under a dictatorship (and especially a strong "successful" one) I'm sure there was a structure of power and distributed decision-making down to the local level: one man alone can't run the country.

comment Are modern handguns a major reason for democratization?
Fair enough. The argument just sounds like someone's reasoning for their second amendment rights. It's common currency among those who bear arms that they must continue to do so to protect their democracy.

I think this is a uniquely American conceit.
