Hey, if you figure your only way to get some money is to join a gang that steals it from your countrymen, why don't you man up and do your own thieving? Cut out the middleman, and keep ALL your "earnings," instead of some minor percentage?
It gets better: you can choose your victims, and can leave alone the honest folk who use peaceful and honest trade to earn a place in honest and civilized society. Confine your robbery to those who themselves use force and fraud to enrich themselves: Rob banks. Rob government offices that hold cash. Be Ragnar Danneskjöld.
You have an objection to this? Tell me, then, is it a moral objection, or simply the fact that such work is dangerous? Are you a moral moron who believes thieving is okay when "government" does it? Or are you a coward?
