I would be interested to know
If there have ever been any real studies into what makes people criminals, i.e. breaking the law
From my naivety I would presume any study would have to distinguish between those that commit crime because they do so or starve from those with an excess of resources who commit crime for reasons other than necessity.
Given that in the Western world the laws are very strict upon ownership and yet do not guaranty a minimum quality life for their citizens so as to prevent them falling into the "crime by necessity" bracket one wonders who actually have the most negative effect upon society.
The UK for example used to have pride in it's social safetynet but now we have vulnerable,homeless and starving citizens across the country in real need being ignored whilst we send charity abroad. The same charity money ends up back in the pockets of the UK people promoting the destruction of that safetynet along with the idea that the destitute were somehow to blame for their situation.
I do not need a machine to tell me who the real criminals are, their actions make them stand out clearly enough but I have no doubt that they will never be punished for their deeds until the law applies to ever citizen rather than just those the police are allowed to prosecute
