Morally Justifying Stealing my Neighbor’s Paper

1 Jun

One of my parent’s neighbors is a doctor who has been working on developing a vitamin through a company he founded.  He got seed money from a venture capital firm.  The vitamin has been tested independently and was found to have no statistical benefits to it.  The neighbor knows this but is still claiming the independent studies are flawed and puts forward his own research, which was data mined to show it does help.  He only selected people for his study who were actually getting better before taking the vitamin.  The market they are targeting is for people with cancer, young kids, and are desperate.  They have priced it as expensive as possible to make it seem more credible.  They are giving bonuses to people who promote the product in cancer support groups.  

 

Given all of this, I think it’s okay that I steal his paper.
