Reply To: What were your primary takeaways after reading “Lebanon: Past Challenges, Present Calamities, Future Prospects”? Is there hope for preserving a pluralistic Lebanon in the future?

I appreciate the statement that though Malik’s proposed policies would leave Lebanon largely dependent on the West, they (Lebanon) would be better off (but far from perfect). I do believe that western influence in governance like federalism would be best for the state, however it MUST be accepted and directed by the people. If the people are bypassed then history repeats.
