You are speculating that perhaps there are external factors for his behavior. As a lesson in psychology they are perhaps interesting questions. In fact, by asking these questions, you are suggesting there are mitigating factors. Maybe you had something else in mind, but I was responding to your actual words.
With regard to MLS and other crooks, I think in terms of what Nick in The Great Gatsby
thinks: "Conduct may be founded on the hard rock or the wet marshes, but after a certain point I don't care what it's founded on." In other words, spare me your excuses about your difficult circumstances and act decently.
