If you are disillusioned by the violence you see on the news, I highly recommend reading The Better Angeles of our Nature by Steven Pinker. Yes, violence may be increased in some areas but overall the statics show that violence is decreasing. We are becoming kinder humans.

"The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, the lie became the truth." --George Orwell, 1984. The spirit of a mob is is a dangerous thing, the opposite of the spirit of people trying to come together and work together in love and understanding. #donterasethepastlearnfromit #rememberingwhoweare #betterangelsofournature #historicalmemory

Just started this bad boy. Monster of a book but the premise seems too good to pass up.

We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.

We could be disappointed that the waterline we tried to rig was 30m longer than the 100m that we have, but that would be silly when we can chill on a beautiful and quiet beach with our books and hammock.

We'll just try again tomorrow, a little further down the road.

At the 2014 #OsloFF, Harvard psychologist Steven Pinker claimed that the world is becoming more free and democratic over time. Would he argue the same now? He will analyze world-wide democracy trends and present the case for humanism at the first ever Oslo Freedom Forum in New York on September 19. For details on how to attend, use the link in our bio.

I see the world being slowly transformed into a wilderness; I hear the approaching thunder that, one day, will destroy us too. I feel the suffering of millions. And yet, when I look up at the sky, I somehow feel that everything will change for the better, that this cruelty too shall end, that peace and tranquility will return once more. ~ Anne Frank #nofilter #happypride #betterangelsofournature

Fascinating talk and Q&A with Steven Pinker this afternoon.. #stevenpinker #operahouse #betterangelsofournature

Currently reading The Better Angels of Our Nature by Steven Pinker, an academic and psychology professor at Harvard University. I've heard a lot about this book over the last few years, and am finally getting around to reading it.
His general thesis is that rates of violence have shown a general tend of decreasing throughout human history and that, despite increased access to news making most people feel it's the opposite, we are living in a time of unprecedented peace in the history of humanity, and then goes on to explore some of the possible reasons for this decrease.
Having read a few of his books before, I would say that Pinker is probably the best non-fiction author I have ever read. His writing is witty, engaging, and full of fun and interesting anecdotes. This book in particular comes very high recommended by a number of people, including, most prominently, Bill Gates, who has listed it among his top books of all time.

All men were created to lead but we need somebody to​ lead us, more than politicians and lectures with surety you could say somebody to buy us back from the darkness and fallacies.

I found this beautiful and timely prayer on the FB page of @amaryllisfox, a former CIA agent who is now a peace worker. She was the subject, along with the @dalailama of my previous post. With apologies,if needed, to Ms. Fox for not asking first, I am borrowing that prayer and reposing here. #prayer #peaceworkers #conflicttransformation #bealightinthedarkness #betterangelsofournature #bethechange #liveoutyourhashtag

Mr. Trump should think twice about putting bans on individuals from Islamic countries...what do you tell those who have no direct hand in what their radical countrymen do, and are thus punished, as they themselves are the perpetrator?

That sets a bad precedent for us, and for other countriesas...going forward.

And it will be those who indeed need our help the most..that will bear the brunt of that consequence.
