      and different individuals react in different ways.  Apes don't like it when their companions are maltreated.  Nor do little kids, and I think that that's emotion-based, and that the concept (at some point) follows.

      Anyway, in the overall picture, I would certainly argue that anger can be righteous, and channeled into good things.  "Voting is the best revenge", as was recently said by someone I'm justifiably angry at for various reasons.
