Meat eating and psychosis

Conflicted Meat-Eaters May Deny That Meat-Animals Have the Capacity to Suffer. A new study from the University of Kent has found that people who wish to escape the 'meat paradox' -- i.e., simultaneously disliking hurting animals and enjoying eating meat -- may do so by denying that the animal they ate had the capacity to suffer.

IMO: Briefly:  This 'denial effect' agrees very well with what we are hearing from Cameron and the "Moat and Duckpond" coalition's opinions about Facebook. All those people should adopt a more moral policy, it would make their views, and the public expressions of their views, clearer. Obviously, a good cleric or a good psychiatrist, could help such people.
