I always thought robin hood was a jerk. Imagine you worked so hard to be that rich and you're always helping the poor but some stupid asshole with a homemade bow and arrow, thinks that he has the right to steal all my money and give it to the poor. What if that poor person is poor because of poor life choices? Ever thought about that Mr. Robin Hood?
@Vegetable Soup, i always thought that as well. But socialism isnt famous for well thought out plans
@Guy Fawkes, although in the book that I read, he stole from rich people who supported king John and occasionally loaned money to supporters of king Richard (He himself was a nobleman attempting to collect enough money to pay the ransom to get king Richard back)
@Toxia, ive seen the animated movie. It was perdy good
@Vegetable Soup, imagine you worked so hard being born to the British nobility
@Vegetable Soup, if I’m not mistaken the story is about how he takes money back that was overtaxed from the poor in the first place.
@Donald Drumpf, Hey, it's not easy being the champion sperm, especially with all the inbreeding.
@Vegetable Soup, do you know of a single rich person from Europe's feudal era who wasn't born rich and who actively helped the poor? Because if you can think of one, I'd love to hear their name.
@Vegetable Soup, Robin Hood stole from the people who overly taxed the poor. They became rich by stealing from the poor. Robin Hood is the ultimate libertarian.
@Guy Fawkes, see my comment above
@big freedom, or communist
@TheWhiteWolf, umm... no. The nobility would be the communists in this scenario.
@big freedom, that doesnt even begin to make sense. The nobility clearly retained all the wealth through taxes. They did nothing to redistribute it.
@TheWhiteWolf, right... that’s what communism does.
