About this Episode

We muse on two articles listed just below and try to think through the problem of anger in politics and in personal life. Does anger corrupt? Is it clarifying? A useful political catalyst or liability? What do we do now that anger is fully commoditized in the digital media sphere in which we live? We stake out our turf as semi-Aristotelians and make our way through these questions and conclude by deciding to do a reading series on After Virtue by Alisdair McIntyre this year.

There are the pieces we read.
