I would not let my family starve, I would get food somehow.

So, you'd also migrate as a refugee then, to some more affluent country, if your kids were starving?

Now, if you apologize and give your own opinion or comment on the actual topic and not me then I will consider speaking to thee.

Whenever I give my opinion 'first', in most cases someone has a dig at me instead of  discussing topic.

You are norty.

You're a bigot. You know what that means, don't you. You're also homophobic. You are one of the most unsavoury posters here with your sectarian views.

You can 'dodge' my question all you like but you'll never answer it truthfully...because you can't.

I'm on topic. The question was dealing with the lengths you say you'd go to to feed your children.

what would I do...

hell I'd steal cheat, lie, sell drugs, women, indulge in any and all kinds of banditry

whatever it took.....

AS WOULD ANY OF YOU.....

which is why, we need a strong balanced and fair economy
AND
a strong social provision , which is tied to "belonging to that economy" i.e NO welfare for "outsiders, beyond the most dire minimum for the absolute minimum of time...

refugees aside (a different problem) any migrant here should understand they have 3 months to get a job..and NO "tax credits etc" for at least 5 years of CONTINUOUS employment. If they lose that job they have 3 months to find another or home ya go (this obviously would not apply to "high value migrants" who have been invited here for their particular skills)

BUT

the strong social provision is a MUST in order to avoid folks having to do just what this post is about.....

I think LF you have rather strayed from the point.   You said you would do anything - so would you become a migrant if the economy of this country collapsed and you couldn't feed your family here?   Yes, I know you could shoot rabbits etc, but there might be a lot of people doing that, and what if it let to and internal war?  Would you get your family out to safety whether you had a job to go to or not?

I'd make sure young family was safe (daughter and grandkids)...but I'd stay and fight.....

however...the assumption of internal war isnt part of the equation here...AND I did say refugees are a different matter to "immigrants"

If social conditions got THAT bad ...hell I'd likely be the one LEADING the war.....

No drugs.....maybe busk and sing, I don't think I could beg, I would possibly steal if I couldn't find employment anywhere.

I'd do whatever I could that wouldn't hurt others too gravely... If I had to steal, it would be from Walmart rather than from neighbors.

This question is how socialism came about, by the way, and if you think about who posted it, that really underscores the fact that socialism has some solid ideas.

If my kids were starving I might...otherwise definitely not.
Unless someone has been in dire straits these questions are hypothetical.
Like the one if you entered a burning building and you could only enter one door to save either your own faithful family pet or a strangers child, which one would you save?
