Is freaking out about the world always bad?

I think the significant factor is the extent to which you’re freaking out. If you’re so freaked out that you’re curled up in a ball in the corner unable to function, you’re not rallying anyone. If you’re freaked out enough to be indignant but still functional and able to keep your wits about you and channel your indignation into action, that’s the sweet spot.
