  1. Modern?

    Today we call ourselves "modern" and the world would like us to think that we are getting better and better. That we are "evolving". But something Max said in his book has me wondering. Actually, I was wondering before that, but this put an edge on it.

    In the 20th century 200 million souls were killed in wars and genocides. I did some calculations. That is over 5740 people a year, over 90 a minute or 1.5 each second. And that doesn't even count the murders ...
