John Gray v Steven Pinker on the alleged decline of violence

John Gray and Steven Pinker have been attacking each other in the media over Pinker's claim the world is becoming a less violent place. Worth reading and some of the comments are good also. I love how Pinker's article is placed in the 'Death and Dying' category of the paper.
