well said. Some cultures believe that if something got stollen from you, its your fault because you were not taking care of your stuff and the thief will take better care of it. (a larger percentage of earth population believes this way than our culture does.)
Also karma implies that the person who got ripped off did something to diserve it in the past.
Western culture has a lot to learn about karma. Indian culture is much different than ours and using Indian principles is very tricky..
