Once again, I have the review of history down to the level of current events.  It seems a bit easier to keep current than it was the last time I tried this a year or so ago, but we shall see.  I note that there have been continuing consequences  from the revelations in the Panama Papers, but this is still not something I can really investigate well.

The European immigration crisis, in which European governments have been practically overwhelmed by masses of immigrants and refugees from the Middle East, is something for me to watch rather than actively get involved in. There is a need for humanitarian relief for refugees, but when there is a massive influx of refugees in large numbers, they tend to bring elements of their culture which helped create the very conditions they are fleeing.  There is also the possibility that the streams of refugees are intentionally seeded with agents of discord (such as terrorists) who can hide among them.  It is a complex problem.
