Just wanna see what's CR's morality stand-point regarding this.

Robin Hood: A dude who steal from rich dudes to feed the poor. Do you support this kind of action / vigilantism?

Is it right for people to breach the law and steal even if it's for a good cause? Or is the law something to be respected and upheld rigidly no matter what the cause is?

supports it, especially if the people are ruthless
and get their money as blood money or from slaves
or kiddie porno or killing elderly's or anything else bad

People say it's "wrong" to steal.
But that what our mind thinks.

Eh, it's not right for people to breach the law and steal...stealing is stealing in any case, no matter what it's for. But I think rules can be bended a little, depending on the situation. I don't "support" this kind of action, but if a poor mother was stealing money to buy food to feed her baby, she shouldn't get the same punishment as a drug addict stealing money for coke. Too bad that's not how things go, and the law is screwy.

I don't support it. It's wrong to steal from anyone and take anything that belongs to them. UNLESS the person you're stealing from were stealing from others in the first place.
I believe you shouldn't steal from anyone who worked hard for their money. It would be all theirs. But if someone was making money by stealing from others, then it's really not their money to begin with, is it?

As for robin hood.. I've always wondered since I was a kid..
What if when he steals from the rich, the rich becomes poor since they got robbed. And the person he gave the loot to turns rich? Would he have to steal from the poor that turned rich and give to the rich who turned poor? O_o
Wouldn't that be going in circles? And if he just left it, then wouldn't he be contradicting himself?

I personally think that he was quite wrong in his actions. Sure it may appear that he was doing the right thing but seriously, stealing is stealing. He should have been thrown in jail for his actions. Being a vigilante is selfish even. What right did he have to deem someone unworthy of their hard earned money? Just because someone seems to have a surplus amount of something doesn't mean that it's all right for him to take it. Also, what if the poor person is a terrible individual? They don't deserve to be given money if they're just a waste of space. But robin hood brought us the movie Robin and the 7 Hoods... so we can't be too mad at him

Basically, times changed since then so nowadays, its kinda like against the law but back then, you could basically do whatever you want so its a double sided case this one~

My questions:
Was Robin Hood a Fox or a Human?
Was Robin Hood real or not?

Both, in his situation it was both wrong and right. But I support him. The government was more wrong than he was.

He steals from the corrupt, so if the people he stole for became corrupt, I guess he would, but he would not steal for a bunch of corrupt people.

"steal" is the key word there. For me stealing is stealing. Stealing is a sin, so that pretty much makes it wrong.

Robin Hood = Stupid

He doesn't keep anything for himself and why give away to strangers? What's in for him later on!?

The people are just using him or rather living off him. "Ahh crap, I ran out of cash.." - "Don't worry soon Robin Hood will be here with his stolen goods, now we can just continue doing whatever we want to and not have to work at all..."

I basically do the same thing but I keep the stuff for myself

Depends on the circumstances, ask yourself these questions:

How did the rich guy make his money?
In the case of Robin Hood, the money was made, or rather stolen from the people so the sheriff could live lavishly. The tax money was not going to help the people the way it should. In this case I would say it's ok, however if we are talking about someone who actually earned their money through honest means, then it would be wrong.


And how bad is your situation?
Are you to the point where stealing is the absolute only way you can survive? If it is, you do what you have to do, if not then exhaust all other possibilities first.
