An ethical question: If someone borrows something from you...Submitted by RonPaulWillNeverDie on Sat, 07/12/2014 - 09:18
but does not return it. Has that something been stolen from you by that person? Is, therefore, the person a thief? Does it come down to the intent of the person?
I have always believed it was a form of theft but most people I have expressed that view to, have told me that I am wrong, for varied reasons.(the person could have forgot to return, gave it to someone else, didn't mean to,lost it, broke it, can't replace,could return sometime in future,owe them something,etc. etc.)
What is your opinion?
