Think of these phrases, and who does it bring to mind?
Against rich people
Uses illegal and often unkind methods to get his way
Wants all people equal (or so he says)
Does not honor the king: is against them
Is extremely violent: most times that he is heard of he brandishes a well known weapon
Has a girlfriend who is not only well-off herself, but serves the very people he degrades and steals from.
So now we’ll agree that the children’s legend master-thief had ulterior motives behind his gallant robberies. And for those who didn’t get who this famous communist was, it was not Mao (though I think a few of the descriptions might fit him), but it is Robin Hood. Yes, can’t you imagine the book title:
The Case of Robin Hood
Not only is Robin unfair with the honest and hard working rich people, but he also turns people against the local law-enforcement team, and shoots anyone who dares oppose him (with a bow and arrow of course.)
So is this hero truly for the reforms of the poor, and does he give all his loot to them, or does he perhaps set aside a stash? In every story, he always helps to stir up the poor. Could this be the start of a medieval-cultural-revolution?
So in future, is reading Robbin Hood to kids a good thing? The bad morals, ah! Stealing, murder, unlawfulness, and leading an uprising! Tsk, tsk.
I’m sure you will now agree that Robbin Hood, convicted felon, was the first and the most well-known Communist in the Western World.
