    What qualifies as stealing? It is obvious that robbing a bank or a store, or breaking into a house and running off with valuables is stealing. But what about other things we may have been told are stealing, or reconsidered "the system" of penny ante stuff or 'getting even.' It doesn't matter that some of these options may also be defined as other forms of dishonesty or sin, such as hypocrisy or vandalism.

    IMO, some of these may be wrong, but are not stealing. The last two are examples. One is being a schnook. And the other one is vandalism. Both are wrong, but are not stealing.
