Rebuilding Our National Identity
Libya’s cultural and social heritage consists of our systems of social organization, beliefs and practices, systems of property ownership, labor and decision making patterns, marriage practices and family structures, sports and recreational activities, as well as our languages, history, artifacts, and architectural structures. The positive elements of our cultural and social heritage, attitudes, and values must be used to form a Libyan identity that can serve as a basis for socioeconomic transformation and development. Libya’s previous leaders were not supportive of hard work, innovation, and creativity and failed to create an environment for such values to emerge. As a result, many Libyans have a high degree of apathy and lack accountability, motivation, and ambition.
