What I was basically conveying on here is that if one has to steal food from the grocery store or a resturant to survive - when there is no other alternative, at least at that time - then I still say, so be it.
When Glenn Beck says people are not entitled to food or shelther, etc, (that we are supposed to struggle as creative beings..blablabla) he forgot the kind of ascription and stigmatization societies have put upon others...in comparision to his and his daddy's life as a supported business owner.
Besides we're not primative anymore. We're in the 21st century.
No one in the US should have to "compete" or "fight" at an unfair disadvantage compared to those who already have WAY too much for little effort.
Our society can still have progression, competition, and exponential creativity.
I doubt you have to be too "liberal" or "conservative" to do so.
This country should pay higher wages and help provide more numbers of safe shelters and food kitches (24hr) for those who aren't able to eat Tues and Thursdays only.
I haven't been there (yet), but God Bless those who have told me the horror stories of their lives. And as cheesy and drama queenish as I can come across over these kinds of subjects, I'll add this as well, if "reincarnation" does in fact exist, we all are randomly born after we randomly die. And the chances are many of us will be born very poor and become more prone to disease and starvation than in previous lives.
Now, why would I say such silly things? It's just common sensical thinking...debatable, yes, but since this world is over populating while stifling it's ecology, animals, and human beings. More of us are becoming poorer and poorer, while others become greedy for the wrong reasons. We need to think and act for the sake of not just individuality (which I love about American culture) but for the groups of individuals who are suffering. But I'd say start WITH OURSELVES.
