An interesting low-key background to the Libya and Arab Spring youth support from capitalism is demonstrated by the Mercycorps promoted video of Libyan rapper Yousef Ramadan, whose main inspiration is Tupac Shakur, whose cremated body was apparently smoked by Outlawz in 1996! (Outlawz members included Shakur’s half brother aka Kadafi)

According to Wikipedia the US based Mercycorps fosters the development of:
Microfinance which “is the provision of financial services to low-income clients or solidarity lending groups including consumers and the self-employed, who traditionally lack access to banking and related services.”
Put another way it is about financialising the thinking and relations of global poverty class people who show intitiative. Is this just inevitable realism in todays world? Do we need to face that Liberalisation must be global before we proceed beyond it? I wonder what Tupac would have thought?
Mercycorp have 155 videos on their YouTube channel. Liberty and freedom have many meanings.
