Robin Hood

In Uncategorized on February 10, 2013 at 4:01 PM

In addition to the previous blog, I was thinking how Robin Hood made no sence to me. And here’s why:

First, I know that history has probably given the fable far more than it started out to have, but we have to deal with what we have, and what we have is a man who takes from the richband bestows the welth to the poor. Would that nit create an endless of cycle of which people where now defined as ‘rich’ or ‘poor’? It seems to me that this character, if he is real, would have quite the conundrum on his hands, no. The original rich people, which I assume is the Aristocracy would now be paupers, and the paupers would now be the aristocracy, which would mean that he has to take from the former paupers (now the aristocracy) and give back to the aristocracy (the originals who became the paupers, remember)….. My head hurts just thinking about it, how he managed to keep it straight is beyond me!

Of course, we could assume that he didn’t take all the welth that the original aristocracy had and gave only a portion of it to the poor. If we do, however, we soon realize that the fabled ‘Hero of Nottingham’ was no more than a socialist. In medieval England, he would’ve been beheaded in a public square, or worse for taking the weigh of nobility and bestowing it to the poor. I did mention that history has mire than likely fattened up the fable if Robin Hood, but then again, it is history. History will do that.

Of course, the subject has to be broached of who defines ‘rich and poor’? Did Robin Hood or his Merry men do it? Or did Robin Hood simply take from thoes who had it and give to those who didn’t? That version makes since to me, I don’t agree with it, but that I can make out and not need any headache pills afterward. And who knows, maybe the people he took from where going to give the money to charity, assuming the had charity back then…? Maybe the poor where not money-rich, but felt rich because they had a loving family and a place to sleep at night. If that is what they defined as rich, then so be it.

All of these thoughts really do go through my mind, which is why I cannot fathom the possibility of many myths and legends without consulting logic and reasoning first.
Do you have any questions that I can answer? Maybe you have a topic that you would like me to discuss? If so drop me a comment or a message and let me know. I do not guarantee any answers that you want, only my opinion
