Working to make yourself the fortune you feel you deserve from your labour is fine.
Making a fortune at the expense of others is wrong.
Robin hood was much more than "take from the rich, give to the poor".
Robin Hood is a figure in archetypal English folk tales, whose story goes back to medieval times. In popular culture he is painted as a man known
for robbing the rich to provide for the poor and fighting against injustice and tyranny
The principal was mostly to do with breaking free of tyranny and slavery and illegal taxes put upon the citizens by the Sheriff of Nottingham.
Whether Robin hood and his merry men actually existed and fought the fight is neither here nor there, the idea of it all is more important.
Particularly if you look at the story in comparison to todays global struggles and the NWO.
It's the point of RFID and ID cards to prevent further Robin hoods from even having a chance to bring down a corrupt, illegal, corporate system.
It would seem the majority of us who grew up reading the stories, watching the films of Robin and his gang, have completely forgotten the point of te
story, or fail to recognize its importance at this time.
The same goes for Guy Fawkes who tried to destroy parliament.
The Gunpowder Plot of 1605, or the Powder Treason, as it was known at the time, was a failed attempt by a group of provincial English Catholics
to kill King James I of England and VI of Scotland, his family, and most of the Protestant aristocracy in a single attack by blowing up the Houses of
Parliament during the State Opening on 5 November 1605. The conspirators had also planned to abduct the royal children, not present in Parliament, and
incite a revolt in the Midlands.
The fantastic film V for Vndetta was a kick up the bottom to re-install the ideals that many have long fought for, and many have died for.
In the story, Robin and his men were outlaws, living in Sherwood forest. They were outcasts in their own country, hunted by a corrupt Sheriff and all
had a price on their heads.
But they were free men. They lived off the land, and also from the 'riches' they were supposed to have taken from the Sheriff whilst sharing it all
with the poor.
Robin must have known he could not give it all away as he had to ensure his men were fed, clothed and armed.
Was he a terrorist? In the eyes of the Sheriff, yes, but not to the citizens.
Is it time for the revival of stories and people like Robin hood and Guy Fawkes? I would certainly hope so.
Although these stories go much deeper in the actual way of events the principle remains the same.
Men with the courage and conviction to stand up for what they believed they were fighting for - Freedom
Another notable is Sir William Wallace (Latin: Villemus Valensis) (c. 1272–76 – 23 August 1305) was a knight and Scottish patriot who led a
resistance against the English occupation of Scotland during the Wars of Scottish Independence.
He responded to the treason charge, "I could not be a traitor to Edward, for I was never his subject."
I'm surprised that the ideas behind these men, and these mens names, are not called into action more often.
It seems the legend of King Arthur returning when England is in time of need is stronger than the fight for freedom.
