November 19, 2007

Steven Pinker talks about The Decline of violence compared to the so-called good old days.  It’s a useful antidote for anyone inclined to return to a simpler time.  He also notes that since violence has been going downward through all human history, we must be doing something right, and we should be trying to figure out what that is.

This is one of those TedTalks videos, runs about 30 minutes.
