    •  Anger is a warning bell of ancient--and wise-- (3+ / 0-)

      biological origin.

      Wether the perceived threat  is based on normal internal psychological phenomena like projection or (due to tragic previous experiences, usually) overreactive amigdolas, or common difficulties in weighing external stimulus or the comprehensive Gestalt. We can misinterpret reality due to ignorance, false or misapplied beliefs, or simple bad luck in assessing the context of an event we are facing,

      Anger calls from us the complex art of knowing when to go with instinct and react at the moment, and when to pull back and analyze the source of fear and its implications.

      Without emotions, we would be so simple--and not human.
