Righteous Anger

My really smart lawyer friend told me righteous anger is good and useful. I believe he is right. Smiley He's way smarter than I am. Wicked smart in fact.

Is the new mush head theory that all anger is aggression?

The mush heads are wrong again. Cry

Edit: I cry because every time mush heads who have power are wrong, lots of people die. Cry

Will the Yellow Vests take to the streets over this law too?

Would it be righteous anger? Do they have other choices, or is the Government of France actually that bad?

I'm unfamiliar with this new hypothesis, can you elaborate?

I'm going to guess that your lawyer friend would classify anger about things that he would be angry about also as "righteous anger" and anger at things that he would not be so angry about as not "righteous anger."

There's nothing wrong with that, exactly.  People tend to think that those who agree with them have good character.  But it isn't any great new wisdom to say that in different words.

The notion that anger is useful if it's justified?

I don't think I can elaborate on it. Sorry.

No the Mush head theory that all anger is aggression.  That doesn't seem like the same thing as anger is useful if its justified, which is a pretty old idea.  Along with, even just anger is dangerous.

Anger is not aggression if it's not taken out on anyone.  Aggression isn't something that can be done alone

No.

Anger is to aggression as lethargy is to passivity.
