The comfort zone
Europe does not want to be Europe anymore. Now it is only the meat of a coach of those who recommend you leave your comfort zone, which in the case of Europe is to leave directly from civilization: it is buying wholesale barbarism, censorship, congratulating yourself on the holidays in the name of inclusiveness , drink wine without alcohol.
