We live in the most peaceful time in human history. Wait, what? Seriously? That can't be right, there are more wars than ever! Well, no and they're killing fewer and fewer people, even though the world population is at an all-time high...and the numbers prove it! We explain how we came to this conclusion, and why war might... go away.

The nuclear bomb makes war impossible to win in a lot of cases. War is arguably less likely now but the consequences of war would be infinity worse.

WW1 - "War, to end all wars"


WW1 led directly to WW2
WW2 led directly to The Cold War
End of The Cold War led to overall peace


So:
WW1 -> Peace

Something odd: Fallout's history of war starts at the point when China and the US are mad at each other and a plague arrives and kills hundreds of thousands and a few years later the Sino-American war happens... Coincidence?
