    Anger can fuel social change and has contributed to advances in civil rights. See, for example, the spate of recent, briskly-selling books on the topic, such as “Good and Mad.”

      Thank you Dr. DePaulo!
      “Anger can fuel social change”, Would this be a type of assertive anger? That is the one type of anger that I know is constructive and leads to positive change. It a powerful motivator but With all anger, is there not a risk it could backfire?
