Cameras, cops, restraining orders, etc. do absolutely nothing to stop a criminal determined to harm you.

If you place the idea this way nothing except an army of highly trained mercenaries loyal to you will stop criminals to harm.

Probably due largely to more food and education and overall progress in most places that were previously less developed. I'm not sure it has much to do w/security measures or the lack of them. In any case, it's certainly nice that violence has been trending down for many decades in most places.

Resources availability and education are the main drivers for peace . Most people will be content when they have their food and shelter made available with ease.

Untrue. Criminals will always adapt to new times. It's not safer there are more crimes than ever but more people alive
