    Gaddafism, also known as Third International Theory, is an Sec.png authoritarian economically Soc.png left and culturally Trad.png right ideology, influenced by Muslim 2.png Islam.

    Gaddafism is a term used to describe the ideology and ideas of Gaddaficap.png Muammar Gaddafi, who in a StratoHelm.png military coup of the Libyan Monarchy, became the de facto ruler of Gaddafi.png Libya from 1969 to 2011.[1]

    History

    Muammar Gaddafi's Early Life

    Gaddafi was born on the 7th of June, 1942, into a nomadic Bedouin family near the city of Sirte, Libya.[2]

    At the age of 9, he left his family camp in order to go to school. When he was in a secondary school in Sebha, Gaddafi was inspired by the Egyptian president at the time, Gamal Nasser. This lead to him becoming an Antiwest.png anti-West PanArab.png Pan-Arab nationalist. He set up revolutionary study groups with some of the students at his school. He continued this practice up to when he joined the University of Libya in Benghazi[3] in 1963 to study history, but he dropped out to join the military academy in the city.[4]

    Military Career and Coup

    While in military school, Gaddafi met people who shared his Antiwest.png anti-West PanArab.png pan-nationalism. They then teamed up and immediately started planning a coup of the Libyan monarchy in place at the time. Gaddafi was later sent to Cball-UK.png Britain for further training, and his nationalism was intensified by his experiences there.[5]

    When he came back, Gaddafi and his comrades continued planning the event, and in September of 1969, successfully overthrew the monarchy and founded the Libyan Arab Republic. The new country was ruled by the Revolutionary Command Council, which Gaddafi quickly rose the ranks, becoming the chairman of the council and colonel in the military[6]

    Rule From 1969-2011

    Once in power, in 1970, Gaddafi removed Cball-US.png American and Cball-UK.png British military bases from the country and kicked out the Zio.png Jewish and Cball-Italy.png Italian communities that same year. In 1993, he nationalized all petroleum assets in Libya that were owned by foreign entities. He then implemented laws that aligned with his Muslim 2.png Islamic principles, like banning alcohol.[7]

    In 1973, while economic reforms were underway, Gaddafi announced the "Peoples Revolution" in a speech. This was meant to implement a form of Islamic Socialism.png Islamic Socialism (This ideology is laid out in the Green Book and summarized in the Foundations and Beliefs section). He continued announcing and proposing ideas throuout the 70's and early 80's.[8]

    One of these announcements was that of the newly proclaimed Gaddafi.png Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriyya in 1977. These actions caused some opposition to arise and plots against Gaddafi were made, but the state quickly suppressed then and issued warnings to anyone who may get any ideas.[9]

    Foreign Relations

    Gaddafi and his regime were known for funding groups abroad that alagined with his beliefs, like the Blacknat.png Black Panther Party in the U.S and the IrelandHarp.png IRA in Northern Ireland. These activities caused a growing disfavor of Gaddafi in the eyes of the Cball-US.png American government, and in 1986, carried out airstrikes on several sites in Gaddafi.png Libya, barley missing Gaddafi, but killing many members of his family in the process.[10]

    This relationship with Cball-US.png America and the Cball-UN.png international community only got worse after it was revealed that Gaddafi's regime had funded Terrorist.png terrorists who blew up a civilian plane over Lockerbie, Cball-Scotland.png Scotland in 1988, killing all onboard and some on the ground. As a result, the Cball-UN.png U.N and Cball-US.png America sanctioned Gaddafi.png Libya, but later, in the 90's, Gaddafi would hand over the alleged Terrorist.png terrorists and the Cball-UN.png U.N dropped the sanctions, but the Cball-US.png U.S would not do the same until 2003, when Gaddafi ended his weapons program.[11]

    Another one of the regime's foreign relations was in 2009, when Gaddafi was named the head of the Cball-AfricanUnion.png African Union. Almost immediately, Gaddafi's strong Pan-Africanism.png pan-nationalism made some members of the union uneasy. He advocated for an extremely strong union of all the member states and the eventual formation of the "United States of Africa", which would function as any other sovereign government.[12] In 2010, when Gaddafi tried to become the head again after his one year term ended, several African nations pushed back and he was denied.[13]

    Later in the same year as his promotion to head of the Cball-AfricanUnion.png AU, Gaddafi, giving a speech at a Cball-UN.png U.N General Assembly, famously tore a copy of the U.N charter, causing controversy in the international community.[14]

    2011 Civil War and Death

    In 2011, anti-regime protesters, inspired by recent events in Cball-Egypt.png Egypt and Cball-Tunisia.png Tunisia, held rallies in Benghazi to protest the arrest of a human rights lawyer. The protesters called for Gaddafi to step down from his position, leading to clashes with the Libyan security forces and the protesters. To counter the protest, authorities set up a Gaddafi.png pro-regime protest and broadcast it on state TV.[15]

    These actions caused tensions to rise between the two parties, ultimately leading to the protesters taking control of the city, which, in turn, lead to authorities using lethal force on the protesters and taking other Sec.png authoritarian measures, like blocking access to the internet and interrupting telephone service.[16]


    This rise in violence lead to condemnation from the Cball-UN.png international community, and lots of resignations from Libyan positions, like the Libyan ambassador to the Cball-UN.png U.N. Many Libyan embassies flew pre-Gaddafi flags in protest and many units of the StratoHelm.png military started to side with the protesters, causing Gaddafi's power to weaken significantly.[17]


    After a while, the protesters got weapons and teamed up with the anti-Gaddafi units of the StratoHelm.png military, forming a full-out armed rebellion, and therefore, starting a civil war. From here, it went downhill for Gaddafi. There were Cball-UN.png international calls for his resignation and the armed resistance, although weak, but with the help of foreign powers, like Necon.png NATO, managed to advance. Finally, on October 12 in 2011, Gaddafi was found and killed in his hometown of Sirte, marking the fall of his Gaddafi.png regime.[18]

    Personality and Behavior

    Gaddafism's strange solution to his philosophical conundrum is so poorly thought through he has a hard time convincing other balls of its reason to exist. As he has a notoriously short temper, this can lead to a lot of conflict between him and the other balls from across the spectrum, though it's usually just a one sided shouting match. Most of the balls have learnt he's not really worth their time.
