21: The Bear and The Fox | English | Printed
The charming fox attempts to convince the bear to share his fish by using a definition of theft as having too much and not sharing it! This is not a foreign concept; it is seen that the actions that are needed to alleviate the suffering of the needy can be voluntary in one and obligatory for another, depending on the beliefs to which you adhere. This Fable points out that it’s important to realise that there are many perspectives and to show respect for different approaches to what are similar realities.
