When I say stealing below, I'm not including extreme examples like those.
If you believe that stealing is ever justified outside of extreme cases, why do you feel that way? What is the rationale for that belief? Or is it simply that you don't want to get something through legitimate methods?
I ask because I think stealing is wrong and just can't see why someone wouldn't agree. Even if there's no immediately apparent victim, it hurts esoteric things like community bonds.
When I visited my uncle in Norway, who is an old sailor and fisherman, he told a story about a guy who stole his pencil 40 years ago. People in his area are just impeccibly honest. I know that there are areas in remote China where people are so honest they literally won't even take the manure a neighbor's animal drops. (yeah, that means they don't steal shit, lol)
So, if you think stealing is okay, why?
