Western religions generally counsel against pure anger. In scripture, God is lifted up as one who is "slow to anger." Indeed, being slow to anger is aspired to as a virtue for every living being. Yet there are times when anger serves us well – when it is harnessed to confront society's systemic ills and catalyze change.
