I prefer to laugh.

When I think of the rationalization of criminal behavior I don’t think of something so cerebral as Raskolnikov struggling with the theory of an extraordinary man but rather of The Simpsons:
Bart:  Uh, say, are you guys crooks?

Fat Tony:  Bart, is it wrong to steal a loaf of bread to feed your starving family?

Bart:  No.

Fat Tony:  Well, suppose you got a large starving family.  Is it wrong to steal a truckload of bread to feed them?

Bart:  Uh uh.

Fat Tony:  And, what if your family don’t like bread? They like… cigarettes?

Bart:  I guess that’s okay.

Fat Tony:  Now what if, instead of giving them away, you sold them at a price that was practically giving them away.  Would that be a crime, Bart?

Bart:  Hell, no.
