Martha Nussbaum, “Beyond Anger”. Similar to the Aptness of Anger text, this text focuses on the effects of anger. "Let’s say my friend has been raped. I urgently want the offender to be arrested, convicted, and punished. But really, what good will that do?" This raises a good topic that after inrevertible damage, vengence is what people seek although it is entirely counterproductive. Justice is the argument to be made so no further harm is done, but from the victim's perspective nothing really changes, which is a great root of that anger.
AmiaSrinivasan, “The Aptness of Anger” excerpt. This excerpt covers the topic of productiveness of anger. The argument presented that anger is something everyone naturally feels and it's productivity is the argument that both sides of the debate should consider when evaluating the anger emotion as a whole. Anger as an emotion can be taken as the reaction to something that the individual didn't like, categorized with "I don't like the past" because it was that something in the past that made the individual angry.
