The Green Book

30

The Green Book is a short book setting out the political philosophy of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

Gaddafi’s ideas are utopian, appear to come more from Bedouin culture than from Islam, and strongly rejected both communism and western politics and culture.
He believes in socialism driven by common people and not government-organized or enforced.
Though a Muslim, he does not promote Islam, except in a statement that a nation should have a single religion. He promotes natural culture, and Islam claims to be a natural religion.
Many ideals are proclaimed, including rights of minorities, natural rights of women and children, including the need for children to be with their mothers. That contrasts with the Islamic standard that Fathers have total right and control.
He assumes that in time people will choose this utopia, and so makes no proposal for enforcing it.
There is no impetus for putting this utopia into place by force but lacks a clear statement condemning force.
