What should be the dilemma and implication of such crime?

Postby aenedleah10 » Thu May 10, 2012 6:01 pm

Consider the age old tale of the father who stole a loaf of bread to feed his hungry family. Stealing is deemed wrong by our society and is punishable by law. Failing to provide for one's family is neglectful and fundamentally wrong. What would be the dilemma and the implications of such a crime on the individual, the family, the community, and society?

I think at least partially the delemma is how we balance our societal "duty" to ensure we don't go hungry with an individual's responsibility to provide for their family.
