In the beginning of the movie Aladdin steals from food vendors, and with a Robin Hood like attitude, even shares his bread with some starving children. Yet when he suddenly has the power to whatever he wants, he never thinks to repay those he stole from or to improve the situation in his country. Why? If you could have anything you desired, what would you wish for?
