Quest for World Peace, Based on the Learning Lessons of History – Richard A. Mathisen, presenter

Human evolution has produced four stupendous successes and one stupendous failure. The failure is obviously war, such as World War II. My presentation explores the successes, starting with the ancient Hunter-Gatherers, and reflects on what we have learned about human nature. Then we need to apply that knowledge to international competition.
