There's a little press about the recently-published Human Security Report,
produced by the Human Security Centre at the University of British Columbia.
The report is available here:

8&Itemid=63> &task=view&id=28&Itemid=63
It's an interesting read, and almost counter-intuitive in the context of
mainstream media. There's also some pretty interesting graphs.

Excellent!  The mainstream media will have an ever harder time convincing 

us how terrible the world is becoming.  But even the most casual observer

must have noticed that really big wars began to decline as soon as

nuclear weapons were operational.  If China and Taiwan somehow

avoid armed conflict, we will know the magnitude of the transformation

humanity has accomplished.
