higher agitation or violence in species.
Are we getting more violent because of movies or are the movies
more violent as we desensitize?

As the marketing men would say - that's good numbers!
The US government has a 50% or greater role in most of the so called "terrorist" attacks.
Don't beleive everything you read/hear.
