"The ultimate legitimate goal is maximizing profits and the pursuit of riches. It's a matter of looking after one's own interests, and the only limitations in the best-case scenario are limits imposed by the law." - Yair Sheleg Wrong. The only limitation is how one might corrupt those who enforce the law. When a society becomes corrupt, it is only a matter of whom might corrupt the government most which matters.If 60 years ago Israel could not afford corruption it had little does not change the fact that in the late 1970s corruption was used as an argument to depose the left, only to give power to a right even more corrupt. We saw the same change in the same time frame here in America. Sixty years ago there WAS an existential threat. Now the 'existential threat' is one manufactured out of lies and innuendo by those who wish to distract Israelis from their corruption. Without an 'existential threat' Israelis might notice the criminality of their ruling class.
