And since we started this article with a reference to Europe, here's my take on what's going on there. In my view, the Union is going through its own "perestroika" (remember that term?), aimed at keeping the status quo intact. Since the EU is not the Soviet Union, maybe, just maybe, they have a chance at succeeding. If not, however, the end will be very similar. When the parties involved realize that the political/monetary break-up is inevitable, it will happen very quickly, within a matter of weeks. It will, probably, be followed by years of pain and hardship for the masses, but it will not be the end of the world, and a new political/economic entity/ies will emerge.

On that happy and positive note, it's time to enjoy the summer, and let the Games begin!
