Sad to hear of you loss. I've brought this up on forums before, but was hammered down for being a "goody two shoes", but a civilization runs on a basic social contract of respecting others persons and property. (do not lie, do not steal, do not kill), and cannot function without these rules. Wealth is part of the result of upholding these fundamental laws. Which is why theives are always poor, and so are those around them.
Just think of how much money we could spend on better stuff, if we didn't have to spend so much money to protect it? (US defense budget $500,000,000,000.00 / year)
