Is the study of terror a more nuanced subject than the mainstream gives credit for? Night Owl is a channel where we will discuss topics in both political and economic realms. I fully expect to get some things wrong within this video essay, perhaps Ill get everything wrong. If that happens feel free to point it out, and ill try my best to improve.

Also sorry if my voice sounds a bit sickly. I had a fever when recording for this one.

the revolution will not be televised.

Good animation and effects.
Informative and educational.

I look forward to next episode:)

NightSpaceOwl responds:

Thanks m8! New vid coming out soon!

Very well put togeather animation, voice acting and information. I hardly ever write comments mostly vote. Very well done.

NightSpaceOwl responds:

Deeply appreciate it!

People try to undermine terrorism by claiming "more people die in car crashes than they do by terrorists."

The problem with this is that the cost of terrorism is greater than the deaths caused by the terrorist acts.

Even if the people act irrationally because they continue to drive cars with relatively little fear yet respond much more fearfully to terrorism

This irrational response of the people is a cost of terrorism, and should be considered, not dismissed, when we shape our political policy positions.

NightSpaceOwl responds:

Great analysis!

I'm not sure what I was expecting when I clicked on this video, but I'm surprised to see a very interesting serious analysis of terrorism.

I have a couple small criticisms. First, it is a little strange to be so light on animation for Newgrounds; much of the video was footage of people. Also, most of the background music doesn't go well with the video, but perhaps my opinion on that is in the minority.

NightSpaceOwl responds:

Thanks for the review! And I agree with your points, currently animating more to make future vids feel more lively. And will also expand on music selection.
