Anger can be a good moral motivator. It can help justify and make the best decisions for a person. Anger is an emotion that is based on a person's own beliefs, values, and thinking. It can make wise and just decisions. Anger is an emotion that can be controlled by the owner. Having values to emotions are important. For example, you can't feel anger towards people if you haven't been disrespected in any way. IT IS NOT NECESSARY THAT, ANGER IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE IT CAN MAKE A PERSON INSECURE OR LESS CONFIDENT.

The situation can also add more values to the emotion of anger. Such as fighting, anger can play a great motivator to the person. The person that feels anger will have more emotions and values. He wants to protect his own values. ANGER IS NOT NECCESARILY THE CASE BECAUSE A PERSON CAN JUST FIGHT ANOTHER PERSON FOR FUN. Drunkenness would also be useful. It makes the drinker more hasty and fearless to fight. IT IS IRRELEVANT IF A PERSON JUST PASSES OUT, ANGER WILL BE USELESS. It brings inspiring ideas to a person to fight. Anger can be a replacement for courage. So, anger can be used to make people better.

It is IRRELEVANT to view anger as an emotion that can be controlled because it is viewed as uncontrollable. Anger is viewed as something that wipes out all emotions. Basically just defies all of them and breaks the rules. But when you deem it as controllable and follows rules it should not be called anger it should be called something else.
IT IS NOT NECESSARILY THE CASE THAT anger is a good moral motivator when it comes to fighting because drunk people and angry people can target innocent people. It is basically putting the innocent people who did not harmed the anger person at risk for there health. If anger is deemed as a good moral motivation when it comes to fighting then safety as we know it will not exist because everyone will be afraid and edgy. That is a lie because you can feel anger without being disrespected. as example if i feel irritated by your answer in class i will feel angered to give my view to counter claim your arguement. Like we are doing know we are debating and im getting angered without feeling disrespected because i feel fustrated you don't agree with me.
