Safe to say, that nowadays the European Union is facing monumental changes. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) would be a blessing for some people while others think it would be a disaster. Greece is on the brink of bankruptcy, and whatever happens, its 300m euros debt will hurt someone. There is the situation with Russia: will the country make peace with the EU, or choose to side with China? Also, the recent election results in the UK could mean a potential Brexit, or even bring independence to Scotland.

When I thought that taxing the internet was the biggest scandal at the end of the year, they introduced the obligatory drug test for children between the age of 12-18 as well as for journalists and politicians. After a few demonstrations against this (which are part of our daily routine now) they postponed the decision, but announced a new, brilliant idea: all of the hypermarkets must be closed on Sundays because this way families are likely to spend more time together.
