So it's not all bad after all.

Stephen Pinker has an article at the following link: Edge 206 outlining how the world is actually less violent today than in times gone by.

Although there may be short upticks here and there the fact will remain that since the start of the 20th Century the world has become safer. (Not everywhere, not all the time, just generally)

It's a drum I bang a lot but it is a good point to remember when you're checking out the mugging section of your local paper.
