I don't know that I buy it. Folk have always had the capacity of good and evil. We have a tendency to want to say that things were either much better then or much worse then, but I'd suggest that people have always been the same.

What has changed is that our weapons of death have improved greatly so that we can kill 30 million of our brothers and sisters in a few years as we did in WWII in ways much more efficient and expedient than in centuries past.

Why, thanks to our WMD, we can wipe out whole cities in minutes. Haven't I read that the 20th century was the bloodiest century yet?

No, we evolve in some ways and devolve in others. I'd tend to think it's a wash.
