The Demographics of Peace to War.
The National Geographic magazine in its September 2009 issue has a short article about an interesting, even hope-inducing, program. A way to look at the program is through its published 2009 Failed States Index. The countries of the world are rated on the basis of 12 criteria and the result is extended on a list of which countries are on survival tracks and which are not. Somalia leads the world as enduring the most compete failure. The US is in only "moderately" successful condition. Norway leads the world as a stable, successful government. You might find it interesting to look at the entire results and the program of its sponsor: The Fund for Peace.
