but it seems to me that right now, is the best we've ever had it as a species. we have less war, famine and disease than ever before. sure, the world is less than perfect. there is still war, famine and disease. in addition, there is still violence, inequality and injustice everywhere. no doubt, the world is far from perfect. maybe it's a matter of glass half empty or half full but i tend to see this as the best we've done as a species on this planet. i can't seem to point to another time where there was as low a percentage of people in war or slavery.
f not now, when were homo sapiens as great as we are now?

Google modern day slavery.


Really, more than ever? Even with a generous definition of slavery, Wikipedia estimates 40 million. While that is 40 million than it should be, I would have estimated to be afar larger percentage of the population when slavery was more common.
