Some little reflection on the relationship between disgust and moral ideas

If I am more easily disgusted than most people, how does that change my relationships and especially the ones to whom I have a moral obligation? If one is or ever has felt disgusted with a person's conduct, but one genuinely knows that he cannot help?

Discuss this in relation to a text you have studied and read.

Use the new media stimuli to think about it in depth and breadth.

Pick up lots of realia.

Release your fury in your first draft, or other very strong basic emotion.

Cry and vomit and you might well feel your disgust.

Notice yourself positively and critically! Do you tend to feel disgust more over things that you essentially have no control and therefore no credit/investment/blame?
