|Well I read quite some articles (almost all in russian though) about Libya's social programs, and well - in europe people have like 5x or even 10x(in some structures) less benefits (both in amount and quality) than what libyan's had last year.
Free medical system, free education, xxx amount of money for newfounding family, 50% cost reduce for a purchase of a new (mostly foreighn) car, very low, up to 0% interest credits in government bank, sponsorship for building new house, if you dig deeper you can find probably more and more and more. Also I've read some saying from russian doctors (who went to lybia to work, cos the salary was times and times more than the one in russia), they totally backupped the previous info. They also said, that most 'rebels' are uneducated, very young people sub <23, who live on social security (around 1k+ $) and do drugs.
Also, cpl things among the many Kadaffi was 'busy with' are:
-neglecting USD usage and implementation of new (SURPRISE!) monetary system(dependant on gold standard or 'golden dinar') among cpl northafrican countries(if I recall correctly Libya, Iran, Sudan, United Arabian Emirates, Indonesia, Brunei (sp) and cpl more)
-researching and installing the usage of great underground water reservoir located beneath north african plate. Check out the hand-made oasises right in the middle of desert:
this water reservoir can support whole north africa with water for hundreds of decades (just for example- price of 1m3(cube) water in German household costs around 1euro atm (or even more)
Just cpl infos you probably didn't know about Libya.
