Lapid and, partially, Yachimovich, the journalists turned to politicians are a very troubling sing of the failing state. Neither of them is very educated (compare with that of Bibi), neither has an experience of administrating a big complex system, like ministry or at least a department of a big ministry. Both of them have a lot of power aspirations and absolutely know economic knowledge. Such a “dark foam” phenomenon is not new and it has been observed in a lot of countries when they experienced a deep structural and identification crisis. Unfortunately, very often such periods end in coming of a “Great Leader”, who is not better educated and no better competent but much more brutal.
