    It's the simple fact that they dont WANT to SEE a goat being cut up so when they eat it they don't think of the process it had to go through to get that way in front of them. Just like how most people don't care about violence in video games until it hits an urban setting in a game, from what I can remember no one raised hell about God of War when right next to it came GTA SA and thats what the focus was despite GoW being ten times more graphically "real" and bloody.

    To clear up any confusion, the goat was not cut up at the party (no one was even allowed to touch it). It was bought from a local butchers (already beheaded) and used for display purposes, it was later returned to the butchers (and presumably turned into food).

    why would hippies care about decapitated animals? They are only against wars, promoting peace and weeds.

    ...as long as they ate the goat later. If they just threw the carcass away, that would be wrong. I mean, who here has not killed an animal before?
    Gotta agree with you there Jakko. Animals are killed every day for food, if it wasn`t used in such way who the fuck would even care. As long as they grilled and ate it later I`m game.

    ^ But the problem is the motive behind stunts like this. These stunts are just ment to promote their game through supposedly exciting actions. Someone has to slaughter the goat for them to eat it, but decapitating it for kicks and giggles isn't a good reason.

    Topless girls added to the louche atmosphere by dipping grapes into guests’ mouths, while a male model portraying Kratos, the game’s warrior hero, handed out garlands.
    You have to admit, Sony sure know how to throw one heck of a party....
