NPR Provides Platform to Author Who Defends Looting
National Public Radio (NPR) recently provided a platform to an author who has written a book, In Defense of Looting, in which the author, Vicky Osterweil, argues that looting is morally justified, because “without police and without state oppression, we can have things for free.”

In the interview, Osterweil offered her definition of looting — which has become a staple of what many in the mainstream media insist on calling “peaceful protests” sweeping the country. “When I use the word looting, I mean the mass expropriation of property, mass shoplifting during a moment of upheaval or riot. It’s not a home invasion, either. It’s about a certain kind of action that’s taken during protests and riots.”

She added that the word has been “racialized.” ...

By what moral standard can theft become moral?

I wonder where the free "things" this nutcase wants to steal are going to come from? And when the stores are empty, what will she do? I think I know. Blame heartless capitalism for not providing more free stuff. Stupid has achieved a new level.

The problem is people like this actually believe this is the right attitude and everyone else is messed up. How they got that way is anyone's guess but there is no reasoning with unreasonable people, or are completely bereft of the ability to reason, who are blind but claim they see and everyone else is blind.

2020 has proved to be the year from hell. What's next?

This kind of thinking is plain old stupid.

By what moral standard can theft become moral?

This application of "Marxism(?)" is being done by a childish and criminal mind.

Providing reason and mitigation for criminal activity is lunatic. It is simply the mind of a crook, felon and lawbreaker.

This type of thinking is not going to change society because most people are "normal" and capable of telling the difference between criminal behavior and lawful honest behavior.

Looters can take comfort that long before Karl Mark, the RCC rationalized theft in Aquinas's "Summa Theologica," the definitive text for anti-capitalist Catholic Social Teaching:

"It is not theft, properly speaking, to take secretly and use another's property in a case of extreme need: because that which he takes for the support of his life becomes his own property by reason of that need."

The qualification "extreme" is conveniently vague. Naturally, leftists have all sorts of extreme needs, such as eliminating capitalists.

Marxist dribble exposed for what it is. Exposing this kind of thinking to a national audience only exposed that audience, much of which are on the wealthier side, to what this segment is believing. It ought to be a wake up call to the Woke crowd...this is what mob "justice" and a Marxist uprising will look like.

Meanwhile, as we engage our neighbors with the Gospel, it's good to know this is out there.

"The word looting has been 'racialized'." "We're attacking 'white supremacy'."

Because only white people own businesses and only white people are suffering from job loss, businesses loss, etc. Sounds racist.
What do these people smoke?!

Thou shalt not steal! Leave it to NPR to try and excuse away sin! Businesses can't stay open giving away stuff for free, which leads to joblessness. I guess the rioters aren't worried about that because they are either on welfare or still living with mommy.
