Abstract: The current state of Western society has alienated modern man from many of his previously involved daily activities. This paper re-examines, and seeks a way to re-introduce, man's involvement in what we term "the stealing act" — acts of mugging, whether it be back alley, 7/11, or getting ripped off by a cab driver types of uneven economic forced exchange.
The power relations of the act are examined in part one, including acts of "entanglement" such as bargaining, physical contact and the value propositions of certain variants of the exchange eg. physical goods vs. physical wounds. A tentative framework is proposed for the diversification of the stealing act, whereby the victim is encouraged to, in turn, receive the physical goods from the attacker and for the attacker to receive physical wounds. Previous literature on the subject is reviewed (Kundalini, 1977, Durst et al., 2000, Cooper & Heist, 1971) and it is shown how earlier idealist and transcendentalist notions of exchange diversification in the form of the introduction of effectuating items such as psychological wounds, psychic goods and virtual currency (V-bucks, Neopoints etc., see West, 2008 and 2014 for more) are able to be superceded by our framework of direct material action without sacrificing the essential structure of the mugging.
In part two of the paper, we gloss over several published long-term studies available in the literature (eg. Berlusconi, 2008-2016, Tweeter, Paypig et al, 2007 - present) and provide a critical monster cockysis of the effectiveness of mass stealing acts. Modernity, already our starting point, frames our scope in such a way where it is possible, and indeed required, to think of the stealing act in economic and statistical terms, and the ways individuals can best take hold of these dynamics to their gain. A triangulated structure is proposed, with the individual at the apex of the triangle and the mass at cascading levels underneath. This prismatic schematic has, interestingly enough, already been outlined by Herbert Life and A. von Mascara in their seminal meteorological work "Making it Rain"; here we hope to marry their seemingly distant domain of study with ours to fruitful results. Terry T. Sixchambers' "Cream Get The Money — Fluid Mechanics and its Place in Economics" also infuences our argumentation in this chapter heavily.
We close out the paper with an afterword addressing criticism by Haters (Haters, 2009, Haters & Simps, 2011, 2012, Haters & Hoes, 2014, 2016, 2018) directed at our intersectional economic model of stealing act diversification. Our stance remains the same and we remain unconvinced by Haters' arguments but we still extend our thanks to their continued engagement with the field of study, noting how they, in many ways, do get us going and striving ever towards further refinements of our theories.
We wish to dedicate this paper to Claude Chaser (1996 - 2018), noted esthetician, neoliberal neoeconomicist neoecofascist and TikTok statistician. His works have been highly influential in our pursuit of novel ways to steal. This paper has been funded by a grant from the Claude Chaser and Anita E. Gurle Foundation For Neoliberal Enrichment.
