My 8 yr old nephew asked me. Does Robin Hood steals from the rich to give to the poor? I actually had to stop and think about that. I didn't want to give him the impression that Robin Hood is a Liberal. Then I told him, 'No'... Robin Hood stole from 'Prince John' and returned the money to the people. I explained that "Prince John" represents the government.
Liberal = Steals from the Rich and gives to the Poor
Conservative = Steals from the government and returned the money to the people.
My husband liked Ayn Rand version. (don't know if it's a quote)
The government was abusing its power and taking money from the people from unfair and excessive taxes. Robin Hood was taking the money back from the corrupt governmental officials and returning the money to its rightful owners – the people who earned the money.
There is a new 'ROBIN HOOD' movie coming out. Don't you think we should educate our kids about the movie?
