When I grew up rage was violent, uncontrollable anger such as I described in my first emotion anger https://irenewaters19.com/?s=Anger Nowadays the Australian youth have a lot of rage on board. They go to rage parties where excessive drinking, drug taking or both render the participant unlikely to remember the previous night but for them rage is synonymous with enjoyment.
The word of course originates from rabies and I can see a resemblance to a rabid dog both in the person that is suffering this extreme anger or in the youth as they rage at a party. Mind you I have never seen a rabid dog so I could be corrected on this score.
These days it is also used to express a strong desire or passion such as in “a rage to live”. Or if you replace the a with a the it becomes a temporary enthusiasm for something such as fashion “It is all the rage to dress in knickerbockers.”
Any angry type rage is not pleasant to deal with and if someone flys into a rage it is frightening and on occasion dangerous if you are unexpectedly the brunt of it. Road rage can lead to knives being pulled and people being killed. The one punch givers I presume also have a lot of rage burning in them to walk up to unknown innocent people and give then one huge hit to the head often causing severe injury and death.
The most raging I do is raging against injustices and human rights abuses, land and climate issues. I will rant and rage in the form of protesting strongly in the form of letters and rallies. Thankfully, anger management is not a problem I have to deal with.
