Is it morally reprehensible to...

...experience schadenfreude? I feel guilt, if that helps.

Now I lay me down to sleep
Keep my bike safe from the bicycle thief
Keep my tootsies toasty warm
keep my carbon from any harm

Good Night Road Bike
Good Night Moutain Bike
Good night all you Foosters
And good night Moon

Depends. Much of slapstick comedy was based on it, and no guilt needed there.
If however we're talking about the situation in the Congo yes.

There, doesn't that make you feel better.

It's German. You know the Germans - they're the ones with the cool-looking army helmets and an annoying propensity for going into other people's countries to show them off.

Anyway, auf Deutsch, schaden = sad, sadness, and freude = joy. Thus, literally, sad-joy. It means taking pleasure or enjoyment from the misfortune of others. And leave it to the Germans to come up with a literal compound word to describe it.

And IMHO, the moral reprehensibility of it is purely situational. A random kid gets shot in the butt in the street - shadenfreude baaaaad. Dick Cheney gets shot in the butt on a hunting trip with the same geezer he shot a few years back - knock yourself out.

No, but gloating would be.

What you think or feel can never be morally reprehensible, only what you do.

Think of guilt as "the gift that keeps on giving."

It is never wrong to have (or not have, for that matter) any feeling. Now, there are certain feelings in certain situations that would most definitely be wrong to express or act on.

No!

Schadenfreude is a perfectly natural and healthy part of being a human being. Embrace it.
