Is South Africa "Really an Angry Nation"?

2013-03-26 09:01
Taken from an article that was published in The Times on the 7th of March 2013: ‘ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe has described the death of a Daveyton taxi driver, allegedly at the hands of police, as a barbaric act, it was reported on Thursday. "What is happening is worrying... It is a sign that we are a very angry nation and calls for something to be done. We need to look at what is the problem we as a society are facing. Are we traumatised?" he asked.’

The problem with anger is that it is much maligned and misunderstood. We all know it as those nuclear outbursts that damage, hurt and even destroy. It is celebrated in the media and in Hollywood as wrath, aggression and loss of control.
