It may have seemed like the world fell apart in 2016. Steven Pinker is here to tell you it didn’t.

I’m pretty sure the cries of 2016 being a terrible year were really a joke as a number of popular celebrities died. However most people are overly focused on dramatic headlines when forming their view on the world. 

Extreme poverty, violence and even racism are on the decline.
