      So many things in this culture lend themselves to the task of manufacturing anger. People are taught to "harness" their anger as a positive motivator. I believe that anger never helps as a motivator but only as an incentive in certain situations. The best reason that I can think of why anger is given as a motivator is that while in an angry mood the reasoning ability is diminished. Anger because of jealousy, for example, will pull at a person to seek revenge or make a person feel that a lesson needs to be taught in this situation. Anger is unstable and makes it seem as though there is a time element involved. Everything is given a sense of urgency when in fact there is none. I loved this article, it got me thinking. Bob.

      Faith Reaper and Teaches12345,

      Thank you for your comments. I appreciate every word!. As Faith Reaper says this world is anger driven... even the children are stoic and "mean-mugging" people. I don't understand it.....

      And, Teaches12345 you are so right... so man unhappy people because they are angry... I don't even think people know why they are angry.... Mad for no reason..... Help us Jesus!

      Thank you for posting the effects of anger. It can lead to an unhappy lifestyle, even death if not controlled. I pray people will seek help if they are unable to deal with this emotional turmoil.
