• Anger. A strong power that looms over the soul like a demon. It is an instigator of many emotions. It is a venom that, once placed in the body, extends itself to the farthest extremities and takes control. Those subjected to a Madman’s anger become oppressed, not necessarily by his anger, but by their own fear. However, the Madman sees it differently. It is a boost, a high far greater than any common drug can give. This power driving him mad, this anger, allows him to induce fear into their hearts, to make them shudder at his name, to ultimately control and possess them. The oppressed are fearful of his lust for power, control, and dominance. They see him for what he truly is, a Madman. But the Madman always makes one crucial mistake: He goes Too Far, a mistake that will eventually lead him to the depths of the Fifth Circle. One slight step over the boundary of tolerance and he gives the fearful his power; he turns the odds against himself without even realizing it. He infects them. He poisons them with the venom of the demon in his soul. The Madman has gone too far. He has given them the power of anger. Anger against anger shall not prove to be anything but a stalemate. However, if anger is placed in the hearts of the oppressed, it has a far greater potential. In the oppressed, anger spreads faster than any poison. It spreads not only to the body and soul, but to the farthest depths of the mind. Then, like a tumor, it develops and becomes all consuming rage. The oppressed have a certain characteristic unique to them though: the ability to harness and control their demon. A Madman may neither direct nor bind his demon, but only be subservient to it. The once oppressed become fearful no longer and become more than they were. They manipulate their rage to rid the world of the evil that oppressed them, to destroy it. They become heroes that insight revolutions to set the oppressed free, to set themselves free. When they resolve themselves to do away with the Madman, a strange peace follows.

    Peace. A power that is given to them so that they may finish their action and prove faithful in their commitment. The peace of their souls makes them indifferent to the anger of their oppressor. The Madman’s anger cannot penetrate God’s gift of peace. However if the peace is from God, then from whence did the anger originate? Is it good? Is it bad? The question plagues the minds of those who possess the ability to control their anger and rage. They wonder about the whisper in their ear, telling them what to do and how to maintain control, and the thought ever-present in the back of their heads, contemplating how to rid themselves of their oppressor. They wonder if they are good or evil. Are they from a Godly angel sent from the heavens above to lead the oppressed to a greater purpose, or are they from one of the Devil’s demonic minions sent to lead the oppressed astray and then drag the sinner hellward after he has accomplished the Black Man’s evil bidding? Those that control their rage know that their ultimate purpose is to do away with the evil that oppresses them. A notably good act. However, is using a controlled rage to destroy an evil anger, also evil? But how can ridding the world of an evil be bad? It is a never-ending circle that engulfs the mind.
