What is the Meaning of Indignation | Definition and What is Indignation

Indignation, from the latin indignatĭo, is a violent anger or contempt against a person or his actions. You can associate this emotion to anger, irritability or anger.
Examples: 'the crime of the small has caused outrage among the neighbours', "Spaniards have expressed their indignation against politicians in a mass market", "the words of the Chancellor produced a great indignation in the country.
The indignation is often a spontaneous reaction against something considered unacceptable. This emotion can lead to more or less organized actions, in protest. Indignation can also result in a violent immediate emotion, such as beating or insults.
Take the case of a mayor who has discovered the theft of public funds that were destined for the construction of a hospital. The community realizes that his own money, which was to be invested to improve health services, was appropriated by a corrupt man. The reaction of indignation is done fast and people gather spontaneously outside the City Hall to demand the resignation of the employee.
Indignant involves a series of physical changes because it increases blood pressure and heart rate. At the level of behaviour, outrage becomes the main driver of action and thought. It is almost impossible for a person who is indignant that emotion does not reflect physically or verbally.
Finally, movement of the unworthy means a group of people who formed in Spain after a series of protests favoring a more participatory democracy and a genuine division of powers.
