Anger Management: A Portrait of the Draftee as Frederick Douglass

Gandhi:  "I have learnt through bitter experience the one supreme lesson to conserve my anger, and as heat conserved is transmuted into energy, even so our anger controlled can be transmuted into a power which can move the world."

Me, 1969–1973

All the time I was in the military I was filled to the brim with bubbling volcanic rage at being forced to be in the military, in involuntary servitude to a consummate evil.
