Tashi Nyima: Rage and Outrage

Some well-intentioned persons believe that rage and outrage are necessary for beneficial activism.

However, all variations of anger, while making us feel “sharp”, actually dull the mind and make us ineffective. Anger narrows our focus, and makes us blind to context. Anger exhausts and demoralizes. Anger destroys. Anger saps power.

Peace and radical compassion are the essential components of effective activism.
