Considering an extreme situation of desperation: What would be the best option for you?
1/ Dying ill and hungry on the street because you don't have resources for surviving?
2/ Going to rob a bank and get caught by police. You know that on prison you will have a hot dish waiting for you every day and medical services if necessary.
It is what thought a “man who robbed on a bank $1 to get medical care in jail” It is a difficult decision, because you know that bad actions are condemned, so in the case of this man, it could more the survival instinct than to think twice before to know that he would be punished. Punishment that it was not considered as it for him, all the contrary, he acted conscious about what he was doing for getting a better way on his life.
What was honest for his part was the fact that he didn’t injure anybody; he didn’t commit what others would have done: blood and pain! He condemned himself for him own benefit.
