During this week that we commemorate the 77th Anniversary of the United States entering the Second World War with the bombing of the United States Navy Fleet there by the then Empire of Japan, Michelle talks to our listeners about the work of the Institute of Economics and Peace, the findings of its Global Peace Index for 2018, and whether today it is a rational belief that we can truly achieve a more peaceful future in the near future.
