Lukevera stats that "By practicing the right habits, an individual can tell the morally acceptable from morally unacceptable" but the fact is this does not give an excuse on how to use anger. Anger in itself is a self destructive method that is used in specific conditions that can not be measured by someone else for they are not in place to be able to pass judgement. If a good man sees his father being slain will not react the way he SHOULD which is usually vengeance. Anger is that which is a rushed emotion. Anger takes control over us and is not used in a "middle of deficient and excessive" way. It floods into our systems and is done irrationally. Anger is an impulse reaction set in motion by an impression of receiving a wrong from someone. These wrongs are not "emotions" rather they are something that is suffered by someone not giving it weight. Overcoming the main reason of an emotion is retribution which is in spite of anger something that has lost controlled with the involuntary motion of an emotion. If one has been harmed they think it right to seek vengeance.
