In all seriousness here is a question that has been bothering me for… well, nearly eight years now:
“If one stole a thing of great value and had no expectation of being caught or punished, why would one ever consider returning it?”
The reason behind the question is transparent of course. But honestly I’ve been asking that question for years to all sorts of people and I have yet to get a reasonable answer. That kind of scares me. It should scare everyone.
