Second Generation Emotions

Second-generation emotions are precarious things.

A very clear example of the difference between a first and second-generation emotion is the difference between anger and indignation.

An angry person shouts and wails, and carries on and breaks some stuff, and then gets pooped and falls over.

An indignant person is far more calculated in seeking recompense for the alleged crimes perpetrated.

And that’s it.
