Who would stoop to stealing from the poor?
Now I have never been poor.
Especially, like some have been poor.
And the institution of stealing itself seems to overlap so much with culture and morals. this seems quickly a complicated issue.
Further, “poor” can be such a relative term, but I enjoy the sentiment here.
And stealing is wrong no matter how you slice it.
“Each time someone stole a bike from our porch (three times, by my count), or broke into her car and took the loose change, or stole a delivery, she’d tell me, like a general giving his troops marching orders, “There is nothing lower than the poor stealing from the poor. It’s hard enough as it is. We sure as hell don’t need to make it even harder on each other.”“
