Is anger a sign of righteousness?

Is anger a sign of righteousness?

Webster informs us that righteous is “acting in accord with divine or moral law”.

We often see US citizens, in our streets and byways, expressing their anger at certain actions taken by our government. On occasion this anger is directed at Big Bankers or some other group but generally it is directed at some action of government institutions.

“I’m mad and I won’t take it anymore” seems to be the general attitude often displayed by these demonstrators. I have concluded that most people identify the connection of anger to an argument signifies the righteousness of the argument and the person making the argument. Perhaps this is because anger often accompanies the pronouncements of preachers, priests, imams, rabies, and talk show hosts.

Do you think that anger necessarily signifies righteousness?

Do you think that anger signifies righteousness; but only for those protests for which you agree?

I think it can be a sign of righteousness, just not all the time. For example, two guys fight outside (or inside) a bar. Is their anger a sign of righteousness? No, they are just two drunken idiots either fighting near pool tables or out in the street. Times where anger can be a sign of righteousness is during protests, demonstrations, riots, etc. Other than that, no.

Anger is often a symptom of frustration.
The inability to express a clear line of argument against a percieved injustice can result in anger but equally a clearly expressed argument which is ignored or misunderstood can too.
Anger isn't really indicative of the merit or otherwise of the angry it just shows a relative commitment to a desired end. The end could be utterly trivial and self-serving or of widespread significance selflessly pursued.

Indignation is mind boggling, real and passionate reaction. Indeed, even before you start to yell, hit or shout your body capacities changes definitely. Your cerebrum goes into emergency mode and discharges intense chemicals, advising your body to get ready for assault. Cheap Essays Help. Your circulatory strain soars, your heart rate quickly increments and the greater part of the blood is coordinated toward pointless substantial procedures. Your vision hones and your body actually gets ready for the fight to come.

I have no opinion that anger is a sign of righteousness. Some times some people making angry on something to change the subject. They will be involved in a fault. But they were not agree with the subject. So they were taking an idea to make angry on something to become a good person in front of others. There are lots of people who become angry due to mental problems. They may feeling shame on their weight. That is why i suggest them Ayurveda weight loss Treatment Kerala .

Depends on a certain situation. Some times people become angry when other don't believe in their truth and dismiss. Sometimes they become anger when other just don't understand their point of view. But as for me, last time I became anger when writers from My Paper Writer review filed my academic research.

However, anger can also be a secondary emotion. Many people particularly males are trained to accept the feeling of anger, but not to accept the feelings that may have preceded it; such as feelings of hurt, fear, or vulnerability. Dissertation Help
