The third principle to abide by, is non-stealing. In a civilized society, we do not steal and therefore we generally do not have to worry about this value. However, there is a subtler level of stealing which takes place sometimes. We don’t steal by shop-lifting etc. But sometimes we do not fulfill our own responsibilities. Let us say that I am employed in a place to work for so many hours, at a certain salary. Sometimes we steal time from our work and are not quite honest about our duties and responsibilities. That can be equated to stealing. Therefore, non-stealing calls for being a responsible person.
