thinking of enslaving the other person.

other ideas or accomplishments.

An angry person is a dangerous person,
whether that person crosses our path
or whether the angry person is ourself.

we tend to exhibit anger as well as fear.
We look for someone to blame for the dangerous situation,
and direct our anger toward them.
