Anger, and its risks

I’ve just had a piece go up at http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/mar/04/anger-bad-for-health-has-uses

From early comments maybe I should have been clearer that my goal was, by the end of the short piece, to distinguish between types of anger. The Buddhist typology I spoke of is clearly not about anger – but the way things like Abhidhamma texts examine cittas such as chanda – and declare them ethically variable..

Oh – and for anti-anger Buddhism , the Pali Canon looks safe – but Wrathful Deities?
