What does the data show?

I found a great site which looks at current situations from the perspective of data. News reporters can take advantage of a protracted problematic situation and instill fear in people’s minds by the way they report the news, what they choose to report, and how often they report it.

What do the facts, however, really say?

Check out this site for a Visual Presentation on the Rise of Political Freedom and the Decrease in Violence. We may actually be living, the report says, in the most peaceful time of the world’s existence.
