I can give you my personal perspective.
There have always been empires since man settled down in large cities. Although they might have been intended to maintain the needs of the population,
share an idealistic view on the world whatever...
With every major advancement in human development, from using fire to cook, to domesticate animals and farm, drink milk and so on, it opened up new
and better ways to sustain a larger population.
The last colonial era started out with the European technological superiority, and industrial age that caused huge difference in the rest of the
world. The ever expanding need for more resources, and room to grow just got kick started in ways unimaginable before that time.
What happened is that a curtain people started thinking as better or it is their right to claim control over people without the superior technology
In a twisted way and a history of violent wars, it kept getting better for the average Joe to live a relative save and stable life, while more food
has been feeding more people every year, and better health care developed along side of it...
Populations sky rocketed... At the same times hunger and war killed millions, scientific and technological advancements cause more people to live a
good life, then there were people dying.
Inside fact : Every time people died from the lack of food, it was plenty available, if only those in power distributed it to them. Yes horrific in my
opinion, but not any less true...
So basically all the drama and conflict happening right now, is all hyped up as we got eyes and ears everywhere, even when the news is almost always
what they want you see, in your government or Continental block or financial system favor... There are currently less people getting killed, and less
people in imminent danger on Earth, then ever before.
Basically, we live in one of the most peaceful times in recent human history.
How is that for boosting your faith in humanity huh ?
For me, it's with a bitter taste of mass murder and genocide, but not any less true.
