Robin Hood?

Assertion: It is appropriate to steal from the rich in order to give to the poor.

Justification: While stealing (and other such activities) is usually bad, justifications exist--such as, if you are dying and you steal a loaf of bread to survive; then it's OK, right? More OK, anyway, right?

Well, when it comes to healthcare, these people are dying--or going bankrupt--but the number of 45,000 people dying each year cause of lack of healthcare has been tossed around. So I say we steal from the rich and give to the poor.

I expect some will say: No, stealing is stealing and it's wrong. Don't be a thief.

And in return I say: tell the rich people (most specifically, those who got/are getting rich off others illness and death) not to be murderers via apathy.
