I do my best to avoid acting in anger. Maybe it’s because I’m from puritanical New England, maybe it’s because I watched too much Star Wars as a kid, I don’t know. I’m certainly not always successful, but that’s what I try to adhere to.
My question is this: is anger useful? Can anger be used to strengthen good actions? It’s certainly a good way to get a boost of energy, but is it more destructive in the end? Unfettered, anger will make one lose focus and make mistakes. Can it be fettered? Can a controlled anger yield positive results?
