Jimmy Akin has a fascinating series on disaster ethics

As we saw in the first post in this series, the Catechism speaks of the possibility, in situations of urgent necessity, of taking another's property without it being the sin of stealing.

In the second post in this series, I tried to sketch the general type of situation in which this is licit. I suggested that it occurs when you cannot get what you need by paying for them or through the government or another aid agency. I.e., when you can't pay and are on your own.

In this post I'd like to talk about what things you are allowed to take in such situations and what other rules there are concerning taking them.
