Therefore if you already rescued a child, you will not face incremental consequence for anything you do against any law.

I would never. But the point I'm making is rules too strict on every little thing = incremental rules too lax on big things.

You pee in the Royal palace you get beheaded so then if I burn the king's palace down, flirt with his princess, and loot his jewels I get what? Beheaded?

Do you agree this justifies spending $150,000 loan no plans to pay it back if you plan to be stuck anyhow?
No.

I believe in karma.

There is something wrong about intentionally taking from people vs. unable to pay back due to unforeseen circumstances (illness/accident).

What goes around comes around. Look at Harvey Weinstein....his karma takes decades to come back but it does come back.

You get hung by the neck, your entrails cut out while you are still alive and then lanced in the heart.

If you plan on not paying back a $500,000 loan, then you might as well borrow $650,000. Hell, borrow $1,000,000,000,000,000. But not more than that.

I was going to say, that's one example. And not necessarily even karma.
