Stephen Pinker on violence

Excellent talk here, suggesting that our death rate at the hands of fellow humans is lower now than it ever has been, and consideration of a few possible causes. Mind-broadening viewpoints.

another one in the TED series that I really like is: http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/hans_rosling_shows_the_best_stats_you_ve_ever_seen.html

I think it takes some assumptions that we have about population and really gives us a better picture.
