Sweet indignation

I came across (through Fourth Checkraise) this thought, that I recognized as true and interesting:
"... it must be confessed that indignation is one of the most rewarding of all emotions, as well as one that automatically gives meaning to life. When one is indignant, one does not wonder what life is for or about, the immensity of the universe does not trouble one, and the profound and unanswerable questions of the metaphysics of morals are held temporarily in abeyance."

It's from this column by Theodore Dalrymple. I actively seek Indignation, and it really gives relief to gray void of my life. That's why I read Octavius, who has found one more nugget of idiocy
