Def feel this. What was done to you in the name of Christianity (whose Rabbi pitched a legendary tantrum at the capitalists in the temple), and what is still done in the name of order by the rulers when the ruled get too unruly, is beyond just wrong.

Anger isn't bad or good. It's like fire, a good servant but a terrible master.

We need to learn, when we see red, to stop. We have to wait until the anger passes so that we can think again, because the things our anger wants to do will nearly always make the situation worse.

But once in our right minds, we can tap into that deep well of anger for the passion and the courage to confront injustice. We do well not to forget our anger, for directed properly, it can serve us well.
