A Legacy of Stealing … 7 Often Unrecognized Acts

STEALING: to take, especially in a secret manner : to take slyly, surreptitiously (Coles Concise English Dictionary, 1979)

Other words for STEAL (Synonyms): take, filch, bag, thieve, loot, rob, purloin, embezzle, defraud, keep, carry away or off, appropriate, take possession of, withdraw, divert, lift, remove, impress, abduct, shanghai, kidnap, spirit away, run off with, hold for ransom, rifle, sack, cheat, cozen, hold up, strip, poach, peculate, counterfeit, circulate bad money, swindle, plagiarize, misappropriate, housebreak, burglarize, blackmail, fleece, plunder, pillage, despoil, ransack, crib, burgle, stick up, hijack, skyjack, pinch, rustle, rip off, liberate, snatch, lift, freeze onto, annex, copy, swipe, mooch, gyp, dip one’s hands into, make off with. (Funk & Wagnalls Edition Webster’s New World Thesaurus, 1971)

Stealing is just one of the ways that reveals the Disrespect Levels of our world … and our own lives. And history reveals stealing has been going on since the beginning of time … in The Bible and in other accounts of humanity’s existence. To counter the effects that impacts us all, considering how we also perpetuate stealing will empower us to reduce and eliminate its fallout in our individual lives and world.

7 Often Unrecognized Acts of Stealing

1. INNOCENCE … by indifference, neglect, abuse, assault, violence
2. POTENTIAL … by lack of resources and opportunities to thrive
3. REPUTATION … by judgment, speculation, gossip, guilt assumption
4. LEGACY … by taking land founded by someone else
5. HERITAGE … by annihilating someone’s way of life and history
6. PRIVACY … by using technology to gather information for one’s own gain
7. HUMAN RIGHTS … by not valuing … respecting … every life … every person

The fallout of these thefts drives what we commonly think of as stealing … taking someone’s money or things … whether from a person, a store or from employers; but as the alternate words to stealing and the 7 Often Unrecognized Acts of Stealing reveal, what we consider common stealing is a by-product created by the profound and powerful original 7.

Throughout history, and now, those who have had so much … often reaped from one or more of the 7 Often Unrecognized Acts of Stealing they inflicted upon others, severely punished the common thieves … because they could … even if they were innocent … because they wanted to “use them as an example” to deter any such considerations by other. An example is often known as a scapegoat: a person, group or thing upon whom the blame for the mistakes or crimes of others is thrust … and typically a scapegoat is labelled as such because for some reason, the person, group, or thing is “not liked” … valued or respected and is therefore penalized for their differences, real or imagined.

Yet ironically, those who justify their own acts of stealing innocence, potential, reputation, legacy, heritage, privacy, and human rights do not recognize their contribution as catalysts … or simply do not care because their Respect Level is not high enough.

No matter what the scenario, two wrongs still do not make a right … no matter how much one attempts to justify their acts(s) of stealing … so the legacy continues … until we change the legacy we want to leave.

RESPECT … the way back into LOVE

In Canada Alone … Domestic Violence … spousal abuse costs country at least 7.4 billion a year because of economic impact … policing, healthcare, funerals, lost wages …

7.4 billion for one year
7.4 billion for Canada only
7.4 billion for domestic violence only

What do you think the dollar number is for the total violence is in Canada? … the world?

Do you agree those billions of dollars spent “coping with the effects” could better be spent on fixing the root of the problem … the low Respect Level people have for themselves and for the other people they physically hurt? and harm in many other ways?

So … what are you specifically going to do today to raise the Respect Level of your self, loved ones, school, community, workplace, our leaders? Perhaps at the very least, bring the concept of Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE into the lives of all the people you impact?

Every person … every life is valuable. Let’s stop rejecting people and help them instead reject the disrespectful behaviour that breeds separation and violence … because people only attack themselves or others when they feel disconnected from the world they live in … which is why they try to take control in whatever way they can.

And if you are into praying, please pray for both victims and their violators … both need more respect … and more love … as do we all to create the positive, respectful change we all need.

Raising our individual and national “Respect Levels” will lower these numbers and the related expenses … as well as demonstrating the compassion we were once known for as Canadians.

Also keep in mind that many who have been harmed, without healing, will harm, not necessarily in the same way, but nonetheless will pass on the legacy of violence … the low ‘Respect Level” they know from experience.
