A Forecast of Future World Violence

I was just looking at a news report of a Harvard study which lists of

causes of worldwide "burdens of disease" that are forecast to get worse

over the next 20 or so years. Guess what: violence is one of them that is

on a trend up. It is presently ranked 18th and expected to become 12th. And

violence is even "counted" separately from war. They are using something

called "disability - adjusted life years" to make their listing. This is

from a report (10 volumes long!) out this week and I will read more

hopefully as it gets to local libraries etc. ("War" is presently 16th, and

is expected to go to number 8.)
