When I saw the phrase "addicted to indignation" I loved it. I relaxed. I had been trying to explain for years that people can make a habit of being negative, and can find it hard to step out of that behavior.

It turns out the phrase is by David Brin, who has done a lot of thinking and some nice writing about addiction to indignation.

There is more about that here.

Be dignified, if you want your children to respect you and to grow up to be dignified themselves. You cannot maintain your dignity and also embrace INdignity. Breathe and think of your children's need for peace so that unschooling can thrive in your home.

Indignation is not a virtue.
