Low tech, Christchurch earthquake, DIY fuel, Libya

The Iron Pagoda, a Chinese Song dynasty building nearly 1000 years old, survives earthquakes,
storms and floods.  It is not made of iron, only looks that way, the name may reflect durability.

Which of the Maghreb Free Republics is putting together a Constitution or will they merely turn over committees, groups and leaders?  Where are the lawyers familiar with civil rights, fair governance, and peaceful recall of unwanted executives?  How will elections be organized?  Who is reviewing the laws?

  2. The politicians have to get out of the way and let the people work on the problems, understanding that WORK takes TIME.
