What are the causes of the rising trend in crime rates?
It very much depends on what crime is being discussed. Thinkers such as Pinker actually believe this to be a relatively stable period in history.
Some crimes are down, while others may spike and so the causes very much depend on what crime is being discussed.
Not only is the crime important but also the geographic location, for a discussion of causes, needs to be placed within a cultural and geographic location to even begin the discussion.
It's a great question - just needs to be a tad more specific 😁
