Often I wonder if as I feel my blood pressure rise while watching the news is my outrage worthwhile? Or am I being carefully manipulated by a system that I understand? As my outrage stays within myself and immediate circle I do not that it is not productive. Instead I should challenge the status quo through writing, thinking, and disbursing ideas. Even in the most rudimentary form writing and even commenting on stories is a a way to resist control of my emotions by external forces and instead think of productive commentary and analysis that moves my vision forward.
