    Exactly so the story of Robin Hood is not communist
    It is if you look at it today.

    which is then reading it out of context becuase it was never designed to be communist, people are falsely using it.

    You weren't the original person who started the story. The story of Robin Hood has been changed throughout time and its still being changed now with the BBC drama series. If it was used by communists today it would make a good anti-capitalist story of how Robin Hood stole money from the ruling monarchy and handed it out to the peasants.

    Therefore it is not the stroy of Robin Hood that is not communistic, it is the commu ists ( which im sure they never have) manipulating the story. Who the hell would listen to a bunch of ranters who say that Hood is a communist ?

    I'm the one saying that the story has communist beliefs which it does. Stealing from the rich and giving to the poor seems like a communist ideology.

    Read through some of my previous posts you'll see that it has a certain communist essence to it. It may be unintentional but its there, you can't deny it. Stealing from the rich and giving to the poor leans towards socialism.

    Still theres nothing wrong with communism, your abjection is based on a skewed world view where no one gives a crap about anyone else but themselves, all for one, and one for f*ck all...

    So is the violent overthrow of the ruling class, which is the alternative story you suggested.

    No its whats the communists did in China and Russia and then decided to set up a communist government. They could overthrow the ruling class and then set up a new one, simple change in power.

    Since peasants during Robin Hood's time [assuming he was a real person] were basically owned body and soul by the barons who, being rich mother ******* as it is, then had the gall to EXACT TAXATION from people on starvation levels of subsistence, I think Robin Hood was the least immoral player in that particular game.

    I thought you anti-commies were all about "no taxation without representation"? Well, guess how much representation your average medieval peasant had.

    He also stole from anyone that was rich passing through the woods. That doesn't seem very good. Targetting people he didn't know simply because they were rich and distributing their money to the poor isn't right.

    Consider from a ultiltarian viewpoint, the Barons were by large a minoirty were the masses needed money that was being taxed away from them from the very people who were striding through there forest. Greatest good for the greatest number justfies Robin Hoods motives.
