I was wondering what you the gamers of AG think the cause of crime is?

There's not really a single cause...

Some of the big ones though are poverty, illness, desperation, greed, and bigotry. I'm sure we could spend a while simply naming various things that influence or incite people to break laws or discuss what is and is not a crime in varying places...

crime is done because the criminal gets a personal satisfaction or a personal incentive to do the crime

Take out the word 'personal' and it's more accurate. Sometimes crime may be done to help others, such as stealing money to pay for a relative's medicine.

Why don't people follow the bible? Why don't people abide by the law? Why did Cain murder Abel?
Also if you consider a law to be immoral is it right to follow an immoral law? When does a misdemeanour become a crime?
Look at that fellow in Norway who claimed a political justification for killing all those people. I think that he did commit a heinous crime, so did the jury. He claimed It was a political act.

A crime is an act against the laws, so basically crimes are defined as crimes based on the laws and society.

Now for the reason people do these acts, since we just determined the only link (being a crime) as a subjective definition, it's only logic there are different reasons for each case and situation. The life situation of the criminal usually is an important factor.

I also don't think the bible has any say in this, as 1) it's moral values stem from society and not the inverse, and so the only that should follow it's specific commandments should be those who possess the appropriate set of belief, and 2) going against the commandments of the bible is technically not a crime, but a sin.
