Wonder if this stat is true?

Life

A while back I had a post saying this is not new, we are just more aware.  That’s my theory and today I read an article that furthered that theory.

The article basically said that this is the most peaceful time in history. I wonder if that could possibly be true?  I mean there’s some pretty ugly shit going on in today’s world .   Every day you hear about atrocities, it is in front of your face, broadcast news – 24/7.

The gist of the article is that we are just more aware of what’s going on not that there’s more of it.  I guess there was some pretty medieval shit back in the day.  Plus numbers don’t lie.  But and it’s a big BUT numbers can be manipulated to tell the story one wants to hear.  

Just something to think about.  Because I can’t turn my brain off ever.  I hope it’s true.  When given the choice I always choose to be Pollyanna and think the best and hope for the best and/or be in deep deep denial.  At least my heart is in the right place.

As always, more to come.
