There's a lot of good debate in here about this already, but I just want to add that I lived in a squat for years and was forced to do a lot of 'unethical' things to survive.

Any attempt you make to be more ethical is only going to succeed if you have a lifestyle that will allow you opportunities to make these choices. A lot of people don't get to choose to be 'ethical' because they have no options other than survival. So it's erroneous to assume that being homeless would allow you to be ethical when homeless people's only options are to survive or die.

I think this is the most important comment here because it shows how 'ethical' is really a judgemental and privileged word.
