who was being interviewed here? didn't exactly feel like a conversation..but neither did it feel like an interview. weird. but, as is often true, Sam is a master at finding language for concepts that defy description. rarely a waste of time to listen to the pod.

I'm torn about just letting anger go. It sounds similar to someone who is timid or passive and lets people walk all over them. If, for instance, someone is sexually harassing your wife, calling her vulgar names and making obscene gestures while you are at a restaurant, are you supposed to calmly say, "Sir, I don't appreciate..."? Don't you come off as a cuck? Can't you embrace anger in the moment and then dismiss it later so the incident doesn't eat at you?

John Wick It sounds like you're eating dinner at some terrible restaurants.

Joy Elliott Of course you do. Everything is sexist these days that suggests women might possibly be physically weaker than men. Fine. Exact same situation except I'm at dinner with my smaller, weaker male friend and the bullies are harassing him and calling him homosexual slurs. Basically my original question was: is it ever good to give in to anger or is it best to live like a pacifist monk, even when being harassed?
