Once Aryan Skynet Goes Live It Doesn't Matter Who Pulled The Switch
Colonel Gaddafi’s Green Book, his political manifesto, constitutes the theoretical ideological framework for the Jamahiriya, Libya’s experiment with socialist nationalism. Much of The Green Book, particularly its author’s simplistic endorsements of direct-democratic participation in governance and a radical egalitarian economic system, is tedious and redundantly written; but the leader’s language springs to life in discussing nationalism, and this is clearly the topic in which Gaddafi shows himself to be the most personally interested. “The Social Factor; the National Factor, is the dynamic force of human history,” he begins his exploration of the social basis of his Third Universal Theory. “This social bond, which binds together human communities from the family through the tribe to the nation, is the basis for the progression of history.” “Social causes are […] national,” stresses Gaddafi, “and the national relationship is a social one.”1 More urgently, he continues:
Nations whose nationalism is destroyed are subject to ruin. Minorities […] are nations whose nationalism has been destroyed. The social factor is, therefore, a factor of life – a factor of survival. It is the nation’s innate momentum for survival.
Nationalism in the world of man and group instinct in the animal kingdom are like gravity in the domain of material and celestial bodies. If the sun lost its gravity, its gases would blow away and its unity would no longer exist. Accordingly, unity is the basis for survival. The factor of unity in any group is a social factor; in man’s case nationalism. For this reason human communities struggle for their own national unity, in which its national survival lies.
The National Factor, the social bond, works automatically to impel a nation towards survival, in the same way that the gravity of an object works to keep it as one mass surrounding its focus. The dissolution and dispersion of atoms in an atomic bomb are the result of the explosion of the nucleus, which is the focus of gravitation for the particles around it. When the factor of unity in those component systems is destroyed and gravity is lost, every atom is separately dispersed. This is the nature of matter. It is an established natural law. To disregard it or to go against it is damaging to life. Similarly man’s life is damaged when he begins to disregard nationalism – the social factor – for it is the gravity of the group, the secret of its survival. Only the Religion Factor is a rival to the social factor in influencing the unity of one group. The Religious Factor may divide the national group or unite groups with different nationalisms, however, the social [i.e., national] factor will eventually triumph. This has been the case throughout the ages. Historically each nation had one religion. This was harmonious. […]2
Consequently, Gaddafi advises the “sound rule […] that each nation should have one religion. For it to be otherwise,” he claims, “is abnormal. Such an abnormality creates an unsound situation which becomes a real cause for disputes within one national group.”3 He also discourages intermarriage between different national groups: “Though both man and woman are free to accept whom they want and reject whom they do not want as a natural rule of freedom, marriage within a group, by its very nature, strengthens its unity and brings about collective growth in conformity with the social factor.”4
Regarding the relationship of the individual and the family to societal growth, Gaddafi metaphorically approaches the problem as one of agriculture:
Societies in which the existence and unity of the family becomes threatened due to any circumstance are similar to fields whose plants experience uprooting, drought, fire, weathering or death. The flourishing society is that in which the individual grows naturally within the family and the family within society. The individual is linked to the larger family of mankind like a leaf is to a branch or a branch to a tree. They have no value or life if they are separated. The same holds true for the individuals if they are separated from their families – the individual without a family has no value or social life. If human society reaches the stage when the individual lives without a family, it would then become a society of tramps, without roots, like artificial plants.5
“Common origins and a shared destiny, through affiliation, are the two historic bases for any nation, though origin ranks first and affiliation second,” Gaddafi writes in allusion to the reality of race.
A nation is not defined only by origin, even though origin is its basis and beginning. In addition to its origin a nation is formed by human affiliations through the course of history which induce a group of people to live in one area of land, develop a common history, form one heritage and face the same destiny. A nation, irrespective of blood bond, is formed through a sense of belonging and a common destiny.6
What of the multicultural United States? Does Obama’s U.S.A., when viewed through the lens of Gaddafi’s Third Universal Theory, coalesce into anything resembling a “nation”, and is a single American “nationalism” even possible given the country’s present demographic constitution? “When a political structure embraces more than one nation, its map will be torn up by each nation gaining independence under the banner of each respective nationalism,” Gaddafi forecasts7. “All states,” he continues, “which are composed of several nationalisms for whatever reason – religion, economics, military power or man-made ideology – will be destroyed by national conflict until each nationalism obtains its independence, because the Social Factor will inevitably triumph over the Political Factor.”8
