I just about always agree with Steven Pinker.

The money statement in Pinker: that civilization has made us nobler.

Truth is, my experience is that human beings are decent and getting more so. I'm having some philosophical angst about literature, humanity, and "what makes great art" at the moment.

Maybe I need to read more Steven Pinker. Thank you, Alison.
