Imagine a neighborhood with morals, and an invading smiling horde without any.

I read Survival threads and often wonder to myself if people will have any moral values after the SHTF. Some threads I read talking about bugging out and living on foot, raiding convoys and stealing from others. When The SHTF will you be able to not loot and steal from other?
I personally think that’s messed up to loot and steal. Those people came prepared and you have the guts to steal from them and deny them of life because you were not prepared. I couldn’t do it. If I was that hungry I would hope they would have the same integrity as myself and spear a little food rather than steal it. what are your thoughts

When civilizations collapse, the looters die first. Eventually the looters band together and get smart. Then the survivors get smarter, band together, and exterminate the lot of them. In the end, the looters end up dead and those who keep their "morals" live on to carry the torch of civilization. Me, I don't believe in morals. But that doesn't make me a looter nor a stealer. It means that there are evil people who get shot, and good people who do the shooting.
