    Very good, up-to-date articles, which paint a disturbing, although not yet completely bleak, picture of Libya’s future. Little is said about Islamism, which is surely also a worrying feature, but there are plenty of other problems: regional separatism (not just the East but also the South), the growing culture of violence and arms, the complete lack of entrepreneurship (all the work was done by Egyptians, Tunisians, and Africans), lack of culture of democracy or political cooperation. Oil may be a blessing in the end but, as we have discussed, it is also a curse.
