In 1835's The Tinderbox story, the hero stills the tinderbox from an old lady who made him rich. Then he kills that old lady & waist all the money he got ( "because he spent all the money he got without making any": Laziness), then he kidnaps and sexual harasses the princess, kills the king & the queen ignoring their begging cry. And finally he escapes from his sentence for his crimes and some how ends up being marrying the princess and being the king...

Moral of the story: Money brings happiness, status, and gets you out of trouble.

So true.
