Drunken Post incoming:

WW2 trimmed our society (the european at least).

The Ability for a nation to go to war is: a surplus of young males (ok, a lot of missing young males can be balanced out by adequate rich elder males).

WW2 was a giant meat grinder for young males (as was - to a lesser extant - WW1). In Combination with contraception it forced the european leaders to carefully think about going to war - at the risk to destroy the economic power of their nation. A few Air-Strikes at some Desert-Nation ? No Problem. Every european nation is able to do that. House-to-house-Fighting ? Now thats a different beast…

The Germans are a cruel race. Their operas last for six hours and they have no word for "fluffy".
