Moral Schizophrenia

I first came across the the term “moral schizophrenia” (Greek origin: schizo– ‘split’; phrenia ‘mind’) through Prof. Guy Francione’s arguments (e.g. see *here* and *here*). Having then used this term critically in previous discussions regarding humans and their (immoral) treatment of other animals, I found the latest post (Aug 14), “In defense of the term moral schizophrenia“, (written by the wonderfully eloquent and articulate owner of the blogsite “Unpopular Vegan Essays“) to be of particular interest.

This straightforward and to-the-point YouTube video, which visually serves to underpin the arguments in the post, deserves be watched and reflected on by a wide audience, and certainly by all those whose ideas and actions matter to us (friends, family, colleagues etc.).
