Aggression constitutes an essential element in a great deal of violence. We seek to examine how dispositional aggression influences attitudes toward foreign policy. Secondarily, we also provide some analysis that interrogates the etiology of aggression. Recent work has begun to examine whether the tendency to engage in physical aggression might have some roots in genetic traits. In combination with particular environmental variables, certain heritable characteristics appear to predispose certain individuals to a higher risk of responding aggressively to threat. We present results which include an analysis for the effects of sex, education, and parental and partner bonding on aggression. In addition, we undertake a sociological and genetic analysis of traits related to aggression in a large population of Australians, and their examine effects on attitudes toward foreign policy and moral dilemmas. Integrating genetic and environmental factors to provide a more comprehensive understanding of the effect of aggression on political attitudes and moral values uncovers new possibilities for interventions designed to ameliorate the effects of violence on society.
