Why looting during a hurricane is okay

so if thieves are stealing stuff during a hurricane, and you steal the thing first, you actually
took it from another thief, not from the original owner. So that makes it okay.

It's not nice, but it's okay.

Ukraine is broke, and undertook a war on that portion of the country that provided 30% of GDP. Now a draft, for an army, for a war, for a government that will - get this - implement IMF/EU *austerity*.

Products of a society that leaves seemingly no choices but to take advantage of others, as from their point of view that's what's happening to them.

Cuba was also hard hit by the hurricane. By recent accounts, the aftermath was civilized and about as organized as you can expect. Same weather event, different society, different people. I think the looters were quite aware that there was virtually no aid coming for days or weeks and it was going to be survival of the meanest in the meantime.

While the research shows that people with right-wing views tend to be less intelligent than those with left-wing views,
the continued excuse-making and support for Donald Trump indicates researchers have underestimated by how much.
