I have a better idea. You are an educated man. Why don't you go to a 
library and do some research on Libya as I have been doing either in the 
brick-and-mortar version at my workplace library or on the Net. Then you 
should write your own article, as I urged you to do privately.

One of the things I get from reading about the Marxist movement of the 
early 20th century is how important scholarship was to these organic 
intellectuals. Nearly every 5 letters from Rosa Luxemburg in the new 
Verso collection has a reference to some book she is reading.

Give it a try. I am sure you would find it a very rewarding experience.
