It appears that disgust would be more a group membership feedback than a self affirming criteria. In that case, could disgust be used as an indication of pathological propensity?

I was all set to read this paper but then I saw it uses the word "meme." So, no.

But how about read *this* one, then-- doesn't use word meme.
