Hicks and other rage-filled people are a major societal problem, and the culprit is their irrational thinking. Rage prone people think things must go their way and are dangerous when coupled with an inability to manage anger. Albert Ellis developed Rational Emotional Behavior Therapy, known as Cognitive Therapy, and I used it as foster mother. I cared for emotionally disturbed foster children 9 to 16 years old who were prone to act out, and I frequently drew on Ellis' words for sanity. Ellis' suggested coping statement: "It's not what I like, it's not what I want but I can damn well stand it."
