|Off to the Bank!|
I don't have much money, so losing any or all to some stupid internet hackers who think it's funny to steal from people online would be a major disaster for me. But of course, the thieves aren't thinking about that. They don't associate their online targets with real people.
That is, probably people like them who are struggling to make ends meet, have lost a job or working part-time and need money. We all need money to live in this world right now. Unfortunately, my understanding about online thieves is that they have little to no capability to empathize, but they do know that what they're doing -- stealing -- is wrong. Even if these thieves ever had the opportunity to meet their victims face to face, there would be little to no remorse about hurting them.
Where did these thieves come from?

Where did these scamming thieves come from?
Capitalism fosters not only competition and achievement, but also income inequality, poverty, and economic crimes. It is a "survival of the fittest" economic system. But no, it's really not. It's more a "survival of what is valued" by a society. So, if the Arts are marginalized, then people who work in the Arts will not earn as much money as people who are in a profession that's valued like CEO of a corporation, pro-sports athlete, Reality TV star, or a woman.
Where did these values come from?
If money were not needed, then thieves would not need it. No one would need it. I think that's profound. Just think about it....
