Anger is a policy

The economist Colm McCarthy said anger is not a policy – he’s wrong.

Anger is crucial for justice, without justice there is chaos. The level of anger in a community/country is directly related to the level of justice. In today’s Ireland there is little justice and therefore much anger. Anger must be harnessed and controlled otherwise it will be exploited and used as a weapon by those who have betrayed our country.

Anger must be used as the powerful force it is to sweep away the corrupt political system that has destroyed the lives of so many people.

Finally, the energy of anger must be employed as a positive force in the building of a new, truly democratic republic.
