Nowadays it seems war is coming everywhere , but really war and death counts have decreased drastically in the last 20 years. War and organized violence have declined dramatically over the last two decades.

One reason for the mismatch between REALITY and our sense of it might be that, over these same decades, we have experienced a revolution in information technology that now brings us news from around the world instantly, vividly and continuously. The immediacy of the images and the intensity of the 24hr news cycle combine to produce a constant hyperbole.


The general magnitude of global warfare have decreased by over 60% (since mid 80´s) falling by the end of 2004 to it´s lowest levels since 1950´s.
