News stories can make one feel despair laced with outrage, and 慨 represents that mix as no English word does. This kanji helps to express broad concerns about the state of the nation or the “evils of the times,” while also conveying one’s indignation about being mistreated. Learn to say, “He deplores the frivolous trends of modern society” and “He resented his friend's behavior.”
