The Visual History of Decreasing War and Violence

Truth be told, the world has not become more violent. The facts specific to the history of violence are documented in numerous charts, graphs and statistics, all expertly researched and presented by Our World in Data (OWID) – an online publication that shows how living conditions are changing. The 18 slides that comprise the presentation The Visual History of Decreasing War and Violence present facts that belie the endless stream of pronouncements by some pundits, politicians and citizens who argue with fervor that we are about to be engulfed by the “evil doers.”

  • “Thanks to my reading, I have never been caught flat-footed by any situation, never at a loss for how any problem has been addressed (successfully or unsuccessfully) before. It doesn’t give me all the answers, but it lights what is often a dark path ahead.” [U.S. Marine General James Mattis]
