Actually, the world is safer then ever has been.
Kenneth Lynch

I hear this from time to time and think WTF? Really? How in the hell? I’m truly curious as to how anyone can honestly say this…what is the basis for such a statement? It may be safer for you personally, because of your situation, but as far as modern history goes, the 20th and 21st centuries are about the bloodiest on record. All the wars, all the genocides, all the gangs and drug cartels? I’m not challenging your statement, because it does come up from time to time, so there must be some body of evidence or information that people use to back up this statement, I just want to know what it is.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
