More people, more aggression, bigger empires, bigger wars.
Such empty phrases never submit to scrutiny.
Scrutinize at leisure, then let me know which parts are factually incorrect, and how it's an inappropriate response to Popeye's preceding statement:
I guess all that can be said is that nineteenth and twentieth-century colonialism has been the vehicle upon which a monstrous amount of bloodshed and oppression has self-righteously been enacted upon the weaker.
Never before has there been this number of people yet there are no more big wars.
Now run along.

Big, in the sense of geographic spread and duration or number of countries involved or number of dead?
We don't know ho many have been and will be killed by the 100+ "little" wars of the 21st century. We do know that they are taking place all over the world and that each of the major empires are involved in at least some of those wars.
But it's true, there hasn't been a designated world war for all of 75 years, or one single human lifetime.
Running along now!
