    We are still being torn between two ideas:
    1. Going in the West direction as distinct nation in this region who is very different from all others in the region and totally unique.
    2. We being naturally part of this region with mutual interests and common history with the region.

    The National pact tried to deal with it and failed miserably every time at every corner!
    It was just doomed to fail because of how illogical the approach was to deal with this problem!

    Majority of Maronite tend to side with first approach and the majority of Muslims tend to side with the second!
    An excellent, slightly superficial, description.
    Ever since we became us, we've been operating inside a flawed system camouflaged as a miracle of ta3ayoush.
    Under the watch of the ruling mafia parasitizing inside it, the monotonic ticking of religious and sectarian clockworks everywhere in the background never stopped and has been causing us political pitfalls and deadlocks at each corner. Add to the brew accumulated decades of clientelism, mismanagement and thefts and you have the imminent socio-economical collapse, famine, and perhaps war and chaos.

    The "ideas" you refer to do not stop at being ideas, they have become what defines the boundaries between our communities "way of life". Obviously these do diverge on so many levels, we are where we are today despite MoUs, alliances and political agreements in the form of tebwees le7a whenever needed. This means that the probability for us at this stage to forge one least common denominator, like a national identity, equals zero. Bass it doesn't stop there, it gets worse.

    We Lebanese, as individuals, never really experienced the value of being citizens, true citizens. Cantonize the land according to religious boundaries and you'd still have everywhere the same seller-client relationship established between the state's institutions and us, the "citizens", with the mafia of traditional families za3eem sitting like another Jabba the Hutt in between, controlling the transactions. This is a fundamental flaw in our society.

    To conclude, you have two huge problems you need to solve before you can dream of a decent life in Lebanon, that is if the country still exists as we know it after the looming catastrophe hits it with full strength.
    One: If still united under one banner in one country, our communities lack of one least common national denominator stronger than religion and sect.
    Two: if in applied federalism/confederalism or any sort of peaceful divorce, without complete makeover of the governing system, the current problems will only be a copy/paste from the old to the new. Else your children's children will wake up and go to bed with the same worries you carry today.

    The third problem I didn't mention is the most unsolvable. Educating the people to become aware of how to reclaim and hold on to being true citizens not clients.
