I'm very happy that the world is getting better.
I don't know any of the statistics, but considering that some are online(like from the fbi, which a very quick look is telling me rape stats and most violent crime were trending down in 2013), I'm not too worried.
Go team good feelings!

Step 1: Measure something(say, height)
get a bunch of values back.
Step 2: do magic
Step 3: have two values, say, 176cm and 162 cm. Compare the two values.
State that men in the U.S. are about 8.6% taller than women on average.

That is a great graph ^_^. Do you think it will backfire though? It's like containing tons of energy, and then it will burst open, killing many!

So that we can avoid a philosophical debate and just get down to actual facts, not from journalists (independent or otherwise), let me link some research:

- FBI: http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2012/crime-in-the-u.s.-2012/tables/1tabledatadecoverviewpdf/table_1_crime_in_the_united_states_by_volume_and_rate_per_100000_inhabitants_1993-2012.xls

- UNDOC: This one is a text book, go to page 4 and read up on crime for western Europe. Then go to page 12 which covers crime statistics for African countries. Contradicts your articles from your unbiased journalists. If you go to page 24, assaults in Western Europe do stay steady and increase year over year, which is unfortunate. But rapes and homicides do not. http://www.unodc.org/documents/data-and-analysis/Crime-statistics/International_Statistics_on_Crime_and_Justice.pdf

Post your facts, your research, your statistics from actual reputable sources. No philosophy, no pandering for articles that support your presumptuous fallacies about minorities and gays, such as this: "Just like the LGBT movement, its a movement based on unnatural human instincts it serves no purpose but selfish motives. That's a fact."

Your FBI link is about America, I'm talking Internationally especially places like Sweden whose rape statistics have increased due to the increase of immigration, plus the stats are 2-3 years old. Also your link on the UNDOC the information is about 8 years old. Try to get more modern information (plus seriously? links from the FBI and the UN? they'd be on the list of last people to trust)

Your doing it again, you cant seem to have any discussion without surrendering to your emotions and reacting accordingly therefore are incapable of a rational and unbiased discussion. Your belief system and your emotional reaction indicates a naivety and a biased view point.
You should probably refrain being involved in any political and religious discussions until you have emptied yourself of opinions and beliefs.

Good Luck

You did not read what I pointed out, nor did you post anything to support your claims. I did, whether you choose to believe them, that's your call.

"You cant seem to have any discussion without surrendering to your emotions and reacting accordingly." So you've been objective throughout are little debate? Not stating your own opinions but simply facts have you?

- They don't care as long as our traditions are wiped out no matter what culture or race you are. (Who are they? Entire ethnic groups? individuals? How is this a fact or objective in any way?)
- I don't believe in anything, in fact beliefs and belief systems tend to be the main poison in this world (That's a belief, believe it or not)
- Its a movement based on unnatural human instincts it serves no purpose but selfish motives (Again, that's an opinion)
- But its done to dominate and shame the other animal not as sexual preference. (Another presumption and of course your opinion. I suggest reading "Biological Exuberance". It will enlighten you on why many animals have homosexual tendencies)

That's all you.

I think when it comes to being naive, you assume that role better than I. Especially considering that all I've posted is not whether the world is at peace, but that it has gotten better. Despite 9/11, ISIS, mass immigration, Darfur and Sudan... etc, the world is still better than it has been in a very long time. That is what my research has pointed out, that is what those statistics have shown. You on the other hand have nit picked articles trying to prove the numbers wrong. But all you've done is enforce what I already said in my first post, that we still have a long way to go.

No, good luck to you. You'll need it more.

Still looking pretty horrible in my country. Saw more news about my country still hadn't finished their bloody civil war, and more ethic cleansing and the nationalist party that i thought are the more progressive turns out to be worse in some cases ...

Glad you posted this. Shows that that yearly, the crime is pretty much on it's up and downs. No sharp decline like it did in the 90's. Also add the mix that our population has increased, further reducing the percentage. Good stuff.

It's better in advanced nations.

But am not sure about the poorer ones, it's like they never improve, and it's not their faults, the govt is corrupted and would not organise their country properly.
