Does the WHO have figures on those killed from the Protestant reformation, the Napolenoic war, The dark ages?
What is interesting is Using the FBI numbers, the violent crime rate fell 48% between 1993 and 2016.
Maybe the world is no less or more violent then it ever has been as a whole. The media may skew thinking.
Sticking with the US, we hear every week of shootings etc. Why do European media not report on gun crime where a home owner successfully shoots and intruder and stops a violent crime? It happens across he US every week but media here ignore it. Go figure.
