Re: Pelosi Punts On Official Impeachment Vote, Robbing GOP Of Subpoena Power

Positive emotions trump negative emotions. 
 
Biggie:  I have been thinking about your post for several days now and I would now disagree.
 
I don't doubt but that you are correct more often than not, but anger has won many times over in the history of humankind...
 
Trump harnessed the anger against illegal immigrants and poor border security and the loss of US jobs and the anger against WDC...  And he won...  Trump has very few positive emotions...  He is most often about anger...
 
I believe most people vote for Trump not because they have positive emotions about him, but because they have anger about politics as usual and WDC. 
 
The Revolutionary War was won by anger...  It was not won by positive emotions...
 
Witness the young Swedish girl Thunberg whose anger is palpable.  She is extraordinarily successful as is Bernie Sanders and he is all about anger. 
 
So I guess I would argue the alternative, that anger, if properly harnessed, is just as powerful, and sometimes maybe more so, than positive emotions...  
 
Hitler harnessed the anger of the German peoples after WWI...
 
Stalin and the Communists harnessed the anger of the Russian and eastern European peoples during WWII.
 
Roosevelt harnessed the anger of America during WWII... 
 
I know this is now an academic argument, but witness the anger and hatred of Wormtongue and the lefties right now.  That is their strength...  It is not some love of Adam Schiff or Bernie Sanders...
 
So I would suggest that anger, even more so than positive emotions can change the world, and maybe sometimes for the better?
