THE POLITICS OF ANGER: THE HELP AND THE HINDRANCE
It seems that every campaign, every electoral contest, stirs up deep emotions on both sides. Often that emotion is anger, and often it serves a purpose or at least accomplishes something for one side or the other. More times than not, it just shuts down discourse. So what is the politics of anger and how and why should we diffuse it? And does it matter more to women than to men?
Nick Licata is a former Seattle City councilmember who grew from Ohio farm country, the son of two high school dropouts, to become an activist, politician, elected official, founder of a national municipal policy network, proponent of a higher minimum wage and paid sick leave, supporter of funding for cultural facilities, and initiator of Seattle’s Civic Poet program. Does he know about politics and anger? Undoubtedly.
His recent article, “Defusing the Politics of Anger,” appeared in the latest issue of Utne Reader, and he joins us to discuss anger and politics.
