Fake Outrage

It's a little late for New Year's resolutions, but I stumbled across something that has the potential to improve my life, as well as the lives of the people who must live in close proximity to me.

"Outrage is a fool’s errand, and unless you’re a fool, you needn’t carry the weight of another person’s burden. Let the fools do their own heavy lifting."

This is from Fake Outrage: Dealing with Criticism on The Minimalists blog. The irony is that I came across it on that Great Source of Outrage: Twitter. I know it goes against conventional wisdom, but fighting fire with water is pretty effective.
