Jamahiriya in the photos of the beginning of 80's

LJ user 4044415 writes: The photo album "Libyan Jamahiriya" was donated back in the distant 1981 year to my grandfather, who worked / served just in that country. Considering that soon история Livia, the time of Muammar Gaddafi will be rewritten "upside down" by specially trained people a little more than completely, then these archival photos may be interesting to someone to form their own opinions.

PS: I will specifically clarify that I have no idea whether the Jamahiriya was a good state system or a bad one, whether Gaddafi was a despot or benefactor. This is just the digitization of historical (now) photos.

    It is very similar to our socialist campaigns about the republics.
    Nature, industry, army, leadership.
    Study, medicine, sport.
    National color, traditions (in moderation).
    In short, some pluses without cons.
    I was very surprised here by the photo collection at Bikpichka, Afghanistan (late 60s), in general, almost an oriental tale with obvious elements of European progress.
    Photos like these - women without headscarves and veils, factories with modern weaving equipment, hydroelectric power stations, Beatles record shops in Kabul, bus stops with people in European clothes, etc.

        Gaddafi created all this. He destroyed everything. At the end of his life he relaxed: he believed the west. But it didn’t work out. Fucked and flew away

    I remember someone shouting that they have more per capita income than Americans. Something is not like.

    I think the older generation with nostalgia will remember those times, as in our country ..

    But we have the opportunity after some time to compare, before and after. My opinion is that I do not think that the Libyans will benefit from a change of power.

      They will definitely lose. Only that crowd of ibmicils who destroyed their country with the hands of others will understand this too late. When, instead of a socially generally prosperous country with guaranteed free medicine and education, lifting and other benefits, they will receive a "democratic" crowd of African homeless people.

    It’s clear that this is a beautiful picture, but how do you think that the NATO-Pindos boot walked through all this?

    Remember our country in the 90s ... There was no war, but in many, if not all, cities there was complete devastation until the beginning of the 2000s ... So the shit-democrats of all countries are the same: destroy everything and then grab it ... And before everything belonged to everyone - education, medicine, it was prestigious to be a military man, pensioners did not feed in garbage dumps .... etc ....
