Is War Inevitable?

On this week's Political Analysis, one day after the nation took a minute to pay tribute to its war dead with parades, speeches and too much drinking, Sandy LeonVest hosts a different kind of tribute with guest John Horgan, author of The End of War.

An acclaimed science journalist, Horgan makes a research-based case that Americans' belief in the inevitability of war is based on false assumptions and in some cases outright lies. He argues that the ancient institution we call "war" is not an inevitable outcome of human nature -- and that killing one another is not embedded in our genes.
