Types of Theft
Consider the following types of theft:
- A mugger steals a purse.
- An oil exec gouges his customers.
- A preacher cons his flock into donating money for God and uses it to rent hookers.
- A CEO (Chief Executive Officer) tricks investors into buying his worthless stock.
- An Israeli Jew confiscates the land of a Palestinian.
When a poor man steals from a rich man, we insist he give back the wealth. When a rich man steals from a poor man, we don’t . Further, if the poor man tries to snatch back what was stolen from him, we treat him as the thief.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)
