Burglars, poor lambs

The late Henry Vincent

They do not, writes Dalrymple,

really know what they are doing.

They merely react

to their impoverished or deprived childhoods, or to unjust economic arrangements.

If a burglar is convicted,

it is an expression of the power relations in a bourgeois society, one that protects property rights but lets inequality and homelessness flourish.
