Ghaddafi Socialism

The Third International Theory, also known as the Third Universal Theory (Arabic: نظرية عالمية ثالثة‎), was the style of government proposed by Muammar Gaddafi in the early 1970s, on which his government, the Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, was officially based. It was partly inspired by Islamic socialism, Arab nationalism, African nationalism and partly by the principles of direct democracy.

It has similarities with the system of Yugoslav municipal self-management in Titoist Yugoslavia, and the Yugoslav Third Way during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s as developed by Edvard Kardelj. It was proposed by Gaddafi as an alternative to capitalism and communism for Third World countries, based on the stated belief that both of these ideologies had been proven invalid.

The Higher Council for National Guidance was created to disseminate and implement this theory, and it found partial realization in Libya. By 2011 the fall and death of Gaddafi had seen his system disestablished and replaced by the National Transitional Council.

The official ideological doctrine is the Third International Theory, described in Gaddafi's "Green Book" (1976–1979). Copies of the "Green Book" were always on sale in Libyan bookstores in many languages prior to the revolution.

The book is a collection of quotes of the Libyan leader, divided into three parts and covering the following vital aspects of existence:

  1. Solving the problem of Democracy (People Power);
  2. Solving the problem of the economy (Socialism);
  3. The public aspect of the "Third International Theory.

yes.. i read about that ..
So why would they pin it on the russians if it wasnt them... and that was when the politics of the time would have wanted to pin it on the germans and to keep the russian out to save the negotiations on all europeen matters

because it is not exact as you stated it

The government of Nazi Germany announced the discovery of mass graves in the Katyn Forest in April 1943.
by this they tried to cut the relation between USSR and the allies .( where the polish government was in exile in London )
