...then take bread.

"Necessity knows no law, and the starving man has a natural right to a share of his neighbor's bread.

Ask for work. If they do not give you work, ask for bread. If they do not give you work or bread, then take bread."

Emma Goldman

Even though these words were told some 100 years ago, they speak a timeless truth.

Even though it's against the law, stealing food is morally acceptable if one is left with no other choice.

I think this reasoning could be applied further.

Subsistence is just one of the many fundamental human needs.

If one can't satisfy his fundamental needs in a legal way, then satisfying them illegally would still be morally acceptable.

If too many people can't satisfy their fundamental needs in a legal way, then the laws and the rules of society are wrong.
