  6. There is no doubt that Steven Pinker is a very intelligent man So was the British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain What they also have in common is eternal optimism Neville Chamberlain misjudged the intentions of the Nazi regime under Adolf Hitler Peace for our time was his overoptimistic assessment of the situation because he failed to properly understand the evil before him Steven Pinker is similarly misguided He attempts to paint a picture of the world that is unrealistic In a time of exis [...]
