I’m helping my eldest daughter with a consumer math course (Math-U-See: Stewardship) right now. Just today we were taking about credit cards and how using a credit card is a “promise to pay”. When we go into a store and find something of value we want, we and go to the cashier and “promise to pay” with a piece of plastic called a credit card.
Personally, I would not use my credit card to take property from others with the full knowledge of not intending to pay for that property. I have many socialist friends that also believe it’s okay to “steal” from corporations because the are “evil”. Personally, I see a corporation as a organized group of people. Morally, I see it as wrong to steal from an individual, or a group of individuals, or a “faceless” corporation. There is no difference for me.
You may see things differently. That’s okay. We all have different moral compasses which means we will go in different directions…
