Three drinks behind

"Humphrey Bogart said: The whole world is three drinks behind. If everybody in the world would take three drinks, we would have no trouble."

Hi everyone! What does "The whole world is three drinks behind" mean in this situation?

Thanks very much!

I think he thought that he was being clever. He seems to be suggesting that if everyone had at least three drinks that they would be relaxed enough to be friendlier and make more sense.

Perhaps he had had more than three drinks when he said it!
