As a little girl, littering was amongst the highest crimes in my world. It was worse than theft, because you might be badly enough in need to have to steal to survive. It was worse than violence, because you might have a just reason to defend yourself against evil. It was worse than most because there was never any good reason to leave your trash on the ground, to pollute the world with your trash. I'm not entirely convinced that my internal moral compass has actually changed, but maybe that's a good thing. I'm pretty sure the biggest criminals in the world are global polluters, anyway.
