So, how much of this do you think will happen?

I don't really think the South America one will happen. The opposition won the mayority of the Senate seats in Venezuela so I don't think the "Maduro vs the people" thing will continue that much, and I think we can give Macri a little bit of time to see what he does (doubt it will end in Argentina's economic collapse though). Yeah Brazil may turn for the worse perhaps.

So, what's up with ISIS and that shit "over there"? Are we "done" with it, as an international affair?

I heard Kurds have recovered some towns and stuff. I take it ISIS is losing ground and resources then?
Are there still a high number of ISIS recruits from oversees, or does this "lack of attention" mean there aren't many?

Funny how opposite stuff is happening here and in USA/etc regarding "copyright" law.
There's been a bill proposed here to allow the copy/reproduction of a copyright protected product, only if it's a single physical copy done by 1 person for non-commercial uses.

Basically lots of students needed lots of books and notes to study over here and there were copying shops where they took the books (being lent by someone else) and photocopied them to be able to study. This was supposedly "illegal", but our current legislators said that it shouldn't in this specific case.
Now some musicians and writers and doing some protests because this may be applied to music and other types of books (it's not clear if the bill is gonna change to consider that or not).

Would be kind of hard to think about something like this happening in other parts of the world
