#OsloFF in New York Talk — Steven Pinker, 2017

Steven Pinker - Talk titled "The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress" at the Oslo Freedom Forum in New York

Is democratic progress inevitable, or does it require constant work? At OFF in NY, author and Harvard psychologist Steven Pinker used statistical data and historical trends to paint a picture of the state of the world's democratic ideals. While media trends continue to portray global events in a more negative light, Steven showed us how the world is actually becoming more free and democratic with every decade — but only due to the hard work and dedication of activists, journalists, and politicians.
