Esteem needs are satisfied when prestige, success, and self-respect are met. Probably, it was the same needs that led man to create various forms of gods in his own image, a form of Psychological projection.
Nowadays, doctoral degree gives prestige to the holder, especially if one comes from a disintegrating nation. In fact, it feels good to be called Doctor 'XYZ', particularly if the certificate is awarded by an elite foreign institute such as LSE, (London School of Economics), Cambridge, Oxford etc, all located in GB!
Well, the title doctorate comes from Latin 'docere', meaning 'to teach'. Its origin can be traced back to church industry and its need to have some teachers to provide spiritual healing for desperate people, of course, after passing a deep hat around. Anyway, today, the best-known doctoral or rather 'teaching degree' is called Doctor of Philosophy, the same degree that Seif-Ol-Islam Gaddafi (S.O.I.), Libya, earned from LSE.
Rich spoiled kids like S.O.I., normally, have no incentive to sit on hard chairs of schools. In fact, he has got the oil money which can buy him what his religion promised to offer in the next world i. e. the black-eyed translucent skinned teenage females lying stark naked on soft couches in the shade of trees next to a clear water river, of course, after getting killed in war against the infidel Jews or Christians. In Great Britain, there are so many plump British girls who die for a few pounds to come to a rich retarded Arab boy and lie next to him on expensive king-size beds.
Of course, English girls, with Cockney accent, cannot be understood by the spoiled son of a despot whose father once said: "there are signs that Allah will grant 'Islam' victory in Europe - without swords, without guns, without conquests".
Anita McNaught, the interviewer, aside, LSE received £300,000 donation from a charitable foundation run by S.O.I.. Please, don't call it Conflict of Interest! LSE has, unfortunately spent half the money. Now, if, if, if, S.O.I., is ousted by oil CEOs, then the elite institute is willing to pass the balance as scholarship to the new sons of the next rulers of Libya, say, London based Moslem Brotherhood, or a probable UIRW, (United Islamic Republics of the World).
Anyway, when you ask an illiterate simple worker how deep the ditch was, he forcefully puts his hand on his upper lip, indicating up to here. The brutal despot's son, as a psychopath, is not only dumb and numb but also so slurs the vowels that he needs to use body language to help him partly understood. Who wrote his well versed dissertation and who defended it at the oral presentation, and cross-examination?
In his interview with Anita McNaught, S.O.I. like his fellow psychopaths haphazardly poured out contradictory and logically inconsistent statements. He gave empty rhetoric that either wasn't true or had nothing to do with the interviewer's questions. 'Why do we fail to see the inconsistencies? Because we automatically reinterpret what we hear or rather we, on our own, "fill in the blanks".
