— [http://goo.gl/z9Qw5a] Are human beings essentially good or bad? Has the past century witnessed moral progress or a moral collapse?_______________________Do we have grounds for being optimistic about the future?



:: RT: Steven Pinker ▶ http://goo.gl/z9Qw5a ◀ Today we are probably living in the most peaceful time in our species’ existence | #Society #Culture #History #Psychology #CognitiveScience #Economics #Sociology #Philosophy #Reason #Ethics #Religion


What do we owe to the Enlightenment? Is there a link between the human rights movement and the campaign for animal rights? Why are homicide rates higher in the southerly states of this country than in northern ones? Are aggressive tendencies heritable? Could declines in violence in particular societies be attributed to genetic change among its members? How does a president’s I.Q. correlate with the number of battle deaths in wars in which the United States has been involved? Are we getting smarter? Is a smarter world a better world?

The central thesis of “Better Angels” is that our era is less violent, less cruel and more peaceful than any previous period of human existence. The decline in violence holds for violence in the family, in neighborhoods, between tribes and between states. People living now are less likely to meet a violent death, or to suffer from violence or cruelty at the hands of others, than people living in any previous century.
