I want things and there is no ethical consumption under capitalism

solution: theft

So trading with other people in a mutually beneficial contract is not ethical?


Pop wrote

Not if the items traded are parts of national and international networks of exploitation of the poor and otherwise marginalised

You can't look at capitalism as merely an interaction between two apparently free and equal individuals; there's a broader context of the production of those items and the tendency of wealth to beget more wealth and to create more inequality under capitalism

For as long as the world runs under a profit motive, there will always be incentive to exploit people, there will always be incentive to invent groups to dehumanise so that they may be exploited more

Its not like anything we steal costs money though. You simply apply the five finger discount and the price disappears.

To save money. I can afford everything I lift. I just like having all the nice stuff I have knowing I didn't pay for it. I also gift some of it.

Occasionally I boost to pad out my retirement account more.

I want things, don't have money, and don't really want money anyway. Thus, I take things.
