Ignorance in times of wrath

09 Aug

Social and political radicalization, reopening racial, ideological, and religious polemics, has led to the limits of anger and hatred that can open insurmountable gaps, but anger leads to more ignorance and greater chasms, promises of paradises, and delivering personal and social hells.
This is scientific, the Psychology magazine Intelligence has just published a survey that says that angry people tend to think they are smarter than they really are, anger different from other negative feelings, is related to an illusion of “positive intelligence “Which causes these people to overestimate their mental capacities, think that” others own the truth, “when the hermeneutic truth arises from dialogue.
Previous research has already shown that anger is an unusual negative emotion, as it is often associated with positive traits, and although research does not state this, we can find in all kinds of fanaticism, that enclosed in “bubbles” reinforce the thoughts of conviction in general dogma, and develop a kind of “affirmative” neurosis.
Philosophers and thinkers such as Heidegger, Hans-Georg Gadamer, and Byung-Chul Han had already emphasized the importance of negative, counterpoint, contradictory legal case, absolute truths and absolutisms of evil or good, create “ontologies impera”, a category created by Peter Sloterdijk to explain the contemporary being.
Neurosis develops in a pseudo-creativity in which the same truth seeks to be expressed in a “more contemporary” way when in fact it does not abandon dogmas, fundamentalisms and fanaticisms of all kinds.
The remedy is listening, the search for common sense, and often the only possible response to the angry is silence, of course there are positive cases of outbursts of indignation and repulsion of unjust or immoral acts, but surely a fair person seeks to hear the ” negative “to make sure you’re on the right side.
