Here's an interesting thought:
This is what makes me slightly cross; we have reasons to believe some of our mental faculties should have evolved to be truthful, such as aspects of vision, but there is no reason our moral feelings should have evolved to make us benefit others consistently, so it is dishonest of us to pretend that following them somehow will.
Although there's a healthy dose of self awareness:
As a friend pointed out, I am hypocritically motivated by disgust at others’ hypocritical motivation by disgust.
