    Does anyone else feel like an alien when it comes to other people?

    Why do people do unethical things like steal money from their place of work or shoplift? Why do I often feel as though I'm a foreigner in the country I was born in? Is it because I've been a Christian since childhood?

    Because they want money.

    I guess they want money more than wanting to do good by not harming their community?

    Some people are all just, "meh." Because money buys you things. Most people who shoplift don't even think they're harming their community. They're like, "xyz company makes millions of dollars. I am hurting no one." Same rationale for people who order a doppio espresso in a venti cup and then fill up the dang thing with half and half at the free cream and sugar bar. Or say, "can I get an Americano but with steamed milk instead of water" because it's less expensive than a latte.

    Do I have a high sense of ethics? I though everyone had the same sense of ethics that I did! Except hardened criminals.

    Guarantee you these people either literally do not care (since they're not murdering people) or they have a warped justification. For ex. "XYZ company profits off of exploiting laborers so I'm undermining them."

    They clearly failed economics. If a big company loses too much via shoplifting, guess what happens? They won't be cutting the CEO's salary. They'll just raise prices and/or lay off workers, AKA harm the local community.

    Quite a few of them fall into the category of people that think that major disasters help the economy so...yes.

    And we are distantly related to those folks? Can I officially make my citizenship be in the New Jerusalem and put that on my paperwork?
