Moral outrage - a means of communicating information about one's self

Or is moral outrage partially an attack on one’s own hypocrisy.

Or, moral outrage  based on people’s desire to view themselves as morally upright people. Threats to one’s moral self-image have been shown to elicit unpleasant feelings of guilt that can motivate efforts to restore a positive view of oneself. This is commonly expressed by issuing an apology or making amends.

Moral outrage is much more than an obvious response to injustice; nor merely a concern with justice, or  way to appear virtuous to others, nor even a way to cope with personal guilt.

What is it?

One thing for sure, it is not what it appears to be.
