Let’s get one thing straight right off the bat: The story of Robin Hood (RH) isn’t about stealing from the rich and giving to the poor. It is about the unfair taxation of the poor for which Justice had to be enacted. It is not merely about stealing from the rich to give to the poor. In other words, there was a reason for RH stealing from the rich and giving to the poor. However, the libs/socs have conveniently forgotten about the reasons behind why RH stole from the rich and only perpetuate the lie that stealing from the rich to give to the poor is honorable and moral, under any circumstances. This distortion of the truth must be stopped.
The truth is that the earls, lords, dukes and barons in the story of RH were collecting taxes unjustly and for unjust purposes; they were leaving the poor with nothing and not caring about the plight of the poor. The nobility in the story of RH viewed the peasants as unlimited sources of income and kept on demanding more and more and more without regard to the welfare of the poor. Then, depending on the story, RH is also stripped of his wealth and title, because he opposed the nobles who were stealing from the peasants. Therefore, to reverse the injustice, he becomes the force for good. However, the good that he pursues is to stop prince John from illegally taking over the throne of England in the absence of King Richard the Lion Hearted. In order to do so, RH decides, correctly, that he must stop the flow of funds to prince John, who is using the money to buy his way on to the throne.
The consequence of his plan and action is that he ends up accumulating wealth, so he distributes the wealth back to those that it belongs to. But, the fact of the matter is is that the “redistribution” of the wealth was not his primary objective, only a Just consequence of his primary purpose. Despite this, the libs/socs choose only to remember that there was a redistribution of wealth and that the redistribution was in favor of the poor. Then, they take this distorted and incomplete view and perpetuate the idiotic theory that RH was about taking wealth from the rich and giving it to the poor! Furthermore, they then use this false and idiotic conclusion to justify the highly immoral act of disproportionately overtaxing the rich to benefit the poor, i.e., they force the so called “progressive” tax system on all of us. It is unconscionable! What’s worse is that the libs/socs try to teach our children this immoral and bullshit lesson that stealing from the rich is good and RH’s story proves it.
This bullshit game that the libs/socs play has to stop! Must be stopped!
