I only stole once from work. Some cheese Danish from my very first job while still a minor. It still bothers me to this day (37 years later). Unless
one is a psychopath / sociopath I do not see how it is possible to be untroubled by such actions.
The only justification acceptable to me would be a situation where one acts as a whistleblower, as some have, anonymously releasing information of
harmful intent or actions from such companies as Monsanto. Those I would honor as that is no doubt a highly dangerous thing to do.
At age 27 I worked for a large chain doing auto repair. The manager was telling us to do and sell unneeded repairs. I was the only one there that
never did. The other mechanics did not want to but all said we have families to support and cannot afford to lose our jobs. Some used to be my friends
until I found this out. I have few friends anymore. I only lasted a few months as even though I was not robbing customers it was a disgrace to work
About 90% of the jobs in the USA I will not do because they require lie/cheat/steal type actions or the company itself does such or causes other
types of harm. If no one would work for Monsanto they would not exist.
All too many are quite willing to sell out for the almighty dollar. An even larger group is in various stages of ignorance of the harm caused by the
company they work for.
Dr. Martian Luther King knew how to effect change. He supported a sanitation workers strike in Memphis and was prepared to help expand the strike to
force change. I have no doubt this helped greatly to earn him a bullet with another patsy in place to take the fall.
Change for the better is possible but until the majority become educated on what is really happening and ethical enough to do what is right or we are
doomed to the same screwed situation repeating itself generation after generation.
Steal from work and you become part of the problem not part of the solution. You have been trained into being a sociopath because that is rewarded
currently on earth. You help perpetuate the status quo which is exactly what the PTB want. You have been played.
If those that know better continue such criminal conduct I begin to lose hope that humans could evolve into something better and wonder if we will end
up as a footnote in the future as a life form too criminally insane to do anything other than cause their own extinction.
Are you helping humanity on the road up or the road down? Even minor actions can have much greater consequences in the future than most would imagine.
Surviving or not is sometimes a very close thing. Do you really want to be the one that end’s the dream?
I don’t but it appears I am in the minority.
