Peace article with pic by Judy Green
An article in Saturday's Age newspaper was illustrated by my cousin's daughter, Judy Green, so here is her picture.
The writer of the article, Steven Pinker from Harvard University, says that there has been a decline in violence over the centuries. It certainly does not seem so because in the present time we are inundated with images and stories in the daily news about atrocities and man's inhumanity to man. However he said we are moving forward.
Perhaps today there are many people out there who do recognize violence as obscene and that something ought to be done about it.
Are we getting kinder and gentler?
