Can the action of a person who steals to help the poor and starving people be said to be incorrect?
Is there something wrong in encouraging such an act?
Maybe, because stealing is a wrong, and most importantly, an illegal act. But maybe not, because helping the needy is not illegal and is instead a rightful and dutiful act. Every action can be said right or wrong. It purely and completely depends upon the perspective of a person.
It could only be wrong if the action is performed in a method that phsically harms any that you are stealing from in order to feed the needy.
well, in the end, it's still stealing. Someone will see it as cruel, while another will see it as kind. wrong and right are simply two sides to a never ending battle, and neither two can truly be justified to the other. it's only wrong if the justification you use for the action is unreasonable. in this case, the items you steal are given to the needy. provided you find that reason to be a good one, it is good, but not everyone will see it as good, I.E. the one you stole from will more than likely consider it wrong.
I think stealing is wrong under any circumstances, even if one is starving to death, because you can always humble yourself and beg. To me, stealing to help the poor and starving people is incorrect. If you want to help others, you have to use your own resources, NOT other people's resources!
In the interest of human justice, it will certainly not be called as incorrect. But keeping in view the natural justice, it will be incorrect because it is not a right way to help the needy or poor persons.
With regard to ethical behavior: in the words of Dr. Samuel Johnson, "the morality of an action depends on the motive from which one acts." In terms of the law, it is illegal to steal under any circumstances. If a person feels he is doing right by helping the poor through stealing, he must also be willing to suffer the consequences of his illegal actions if caught. There are far better ways of helping those in need by sharing one's own time and resources or by starting a charitable organization.
Yes it is incorrect. They serve time in jail for a few years. They all get cut.I see it in the news paper often.

Would you help a person who was starving today?If you seen a homeless person on the ground would you help him or her up onto their feet, would you create a shelter if you had the money to do so for them, would you feed the hungry if you we're in a position to do so. Pondering questions, and if...
