That's an interesting hypothesis about alcohol use. Certainly the Vikings, Angles, Saxons, the Ancient Greeks and Romans, a plethora of early imperialist states did propagate the culture of masculine rampage and orgy fuelled by alcohol and which influenced policy. A Dionysian extreme warfare model involving murder, rape and pillage, alas, even the Christian ritual of drinking wine and cannibalizing Jesus's flesh has sanguine connections to the morals and missionary zealotry. All conquest of the unbelievers in the name of God is insane.
