As I sit down in my British Literature and History class, I listen to a lecture about Britain after the Second World War. The professor explains how angry the younger generation was towards theirgovernment because even though they “won” the war, they “lost everything else”. A question then was asked, “Does anger lead to socially meaningful action?” A definite answer did not come to my head, and instead my conscious flited toward Oasis’ song Don’t Look Back in Anger.

Oasis was right. The younger generation, me included, was so lost in our anger that we lost sight of what to be done. We are angry about our society and the government who supposedly does “nothing” about our problems. It shows evidently in each and every article that I had helped write and revise during my year as Editor-in-Chief of the Hanyang Journal. However, as I sit down and try to write my own column, I have slowly come to realize that our anger was not directed to the single person that had the power to change everything:

We were not angry at ourselves.

Oasis does not want us to look back in anger, but maybe what they were trying to say was to not look back on misguided anger. We should look back in the anger inside of us and feel the need to change everything that we see is unfit in our eyes. Revolutions do not start from our bed, but from our beating passionate hearts. So, as I end my year, I would like to leave our readers with words of caution. Be passionate, be angry, but never be misguided
