Nancy has such people in mind when he talks about anger--not to support
theirs but to encourage our own about what they do in our name.

Do they not already compromise our environment in the name of *material* progress. Do they not harbor anger when taking out of the two sides of their confused aristocratic tongues.
Yes, they do. But Nancy's comment is a general one about power--not
about the angry use of power by those who have it, but about those who
don't who need to respond to it.

If you don't think the Dalai Lama or his followers are angry about his
exile, then you're not living in the real world.
By the way, you sound a bit angry here. That's good!
