Demanding change, protesting, and calling for reform is the defining trait of a malcontent. But what does this term really mean? In short, a malcontent is someone who is unhappy with the status quo, whether it's in their personal lives, in the society in which they live, or even in the world at large. This can manifest in a variety of ways- from vocalizing one's discontent to actively protesting and advocating for change.

But why do some people feel the need to express their unhappiness in such a public and often disruptive way? For some, it's an emotional release.
