Yes, the Handicapper General is able to control emotions with different levels of distraction. This doesn't mean that emotions don't exist, only that emotions can be regulated with the use of handicaps. One example of this is Harrison's mother, who cries and subsequently stops because she cannot remember why she is crying.
