Just got done seeing the new Ridley Scott Robin Hood movie, starring Russell Crowe. Though Mr. Scott did terrible, terrible things to the story we all
know and love, it was entertaining enough if taken in and of itself. However, that's not the reason for this thread. The movie contains many elements
that are startlingly timely, and at this time I'm frankly shocked that such a movie would come out at all. Allow me to elaborate, before I get over
the urge to type in a grandiose manner more befitting that legendary time.
#1/Twelfth century false flag: French troops pretending to be English troops, pretending to rape and pillage in the name of increased taxation in
order to instigate civil war so that the French could take over.
#2/The charter, which I take to be the Magna Carta, a document that limits the authority of the King and grants rights to all people. I know,
#3/Persecution of veterans: Robin of the Hood, veteran of the crusades and heroic savior of England, is declared an outlaw by the treacherous King
What next? Intelligent, insightful television? Daring investigative journalism? I seriously doubt it. This movie most likely got made because the few
people who made the connection would not take it seriously, because of the serious deviations from the classic Robin Hood myth.
