Moral Outrage Self-Serving, Say Psychologists...

 

Getting outraged on others' behalf often isn't about altruism but soothing personal guilt and asserting one's status as a good person.

1.The opportunity to express moral outrage inflated participants perception of personal morality.

2. The more guilt over one's own potential complicity, the more desire to punish a third-party through increased moral outrage at that target.

3.Having the opportunity to express outrage at a third-party decreased guilt in people.

 

For instance, respondents who read that Americans are the biggest consumer drivers of climate change "reported significantly higher levels of outrage at the environmental destruction" caused by "multinational oil corporations" than did the respondents who read that Chinese consumers were most to blame.

 

The opportunity to express moral outrage at corporate harm-doing (vs. not) led to significantly higher personal moral character ratings, the authors found.

There isn't a mention of "Hollywood" in this article so please refer to points numbers 1 and 2 above as I ask: How guilty are you feeling today?

 

Hopefully your post here helped you (number 3 above).

Want to work in Hollywood? Here's the kind of nondisclosure agreements you have to sign first  

 

For example, Leonardo DiCaprio:

 

A copy of the agreement reviewed by The Times appears to demand that workers give up their rights to sue DiCaprio over a wide variety of claims, including harassment, invasion of privacy and infliction of emotional distress — “whether or not in connection with the development” of DiCaprio-related projects.
