About our cover THINKING IT THROUGH

You can help to defuse public anger

Tune in to a radio talk show on any given day and you're likely to hear people venting their outrage against this official or that circumstance. Anger is apparently widespread, erupting in racial conflict, violence on the freeway, and in community factions that won't cooperate.

It seems clear that while anger may be considered by some a natural, even therapeutic, reaction to injustice, it doesn't provide any genuine solution. A frustrated, stirred-up state of thought only tends to cloud reason, the perception of possible solutions and steps in the right direction.
