Title: Sarah Sorial
The expression of anger in the public sphere

What role, if any, does the expression of anger play in public  
deliberations or public life? In what circumstances is the expression of  
anger appropriate, if at all, and what does it achieve? Expressions of  
anger are abundant in public discourse and deliberation. Often, they are in  
response to some legitimate injustice that has occurred. Yet some  
expressions of anger seem appropriate, while others do not, even in  
response to the same event.

In this paper, I defend three main claims: first, that expressions of anger  
can function as a kind of performance in the public sphere; second, that  
these performances may have an important, albeit, very limited role to play  
in public deliberations. Third, that expressions of anger should be  
constrained by two important conditions: first, expressions of anger should  
carefully and accurately identify the source of the injustice in order to  
avoid the misattribution of blame for the wrongdoing. Second while it may  
be justifiable to express anger to communicate that an injustice has  
occurred, speakers should not advocate for violent retribution in how that  
wrongdoing is rectified.
