Not recent enough. Violence have gone down for hundreds of years and especially after a society have gone from monoculture to a constitutional democracy there's a great reduction in war. And a reduction matters, even if you promote a zero-tolerance hypothesis.

The world is my country. To do good is my religion. My mind is my own church. This simple creed is all we need to enjoy peace on earth. - Thomas Paine
