17. It is easier to start fires than to put them out.

It is easier to stoke anger than it is to quench it.

Anger out of control can destroy an entire society.

Politicians who exploit anger are like children playing with matches and gasoline. Nothing good can come of it.

I recall a Sanders supporter who said that O'Malley's problem was that he was not angry enough.

I also recall O'Malley saying that no great nation has ever been built on a foundation of anger and hatred.

O'Malley referred to Sanders as a "protest candidate." That said it all for me. Sanders doesn't build things; he tears them down.

We need to get past this divisive nonsense and do some healing and cooperation before it is too late.

I hope and pray it is not too late. It is hard to rein in anger once it has been unleashed.
