Globalizations means fewer wars, less death | ScrippsNews
The “Human Security Brief 2007,” compiled by Canada’s Simon Fraser University, details the continuing overall decline in global conflict that began with globalization’s rapid expansion around the planet in recent years, to include the complete absence of classic state-on-state war since 2003.

As a result, total deaths from conflicts are now lower than the world has ever seen. For anyone looking for a “new world order” after the Cold War, this is it: far fewer wars and much less death from them.

Better yet, when Iraq’s bloody civil war is factored out of the equation, deaths from terrorism have declined globally since 9/11 by roughly 40 percent.
