Its a claim almost right out of Atlas Shrugged.

“What’s happened is that we’ve allowed the vast majority of that cash to be concentrated in the hands of just a few people, and they’re not circulating that cash. They’re sitting on the money,” Moore said. “That’s not theirs, that’s a national resource, that’s ours. We all have this… we all benefit from this or we all suffer as a result of not having it.”

Robin Hood took back from the state the money it has stolen from the people.

Until the 17th century the legends were mainly about him being opposed to Prince John and the Sheriff. However, the common myth *became* that he robbed from the rich to give to the poor.

"The Robin Hood legend has thus been subject to numerous shifts and mutations throughout its history. Robin himself has evolved from a yeoman bandit to a national hero of epic proportions, who not only supports the poor by taking from the rich, but heroically defends the throne of England itself from unworthy and venal claimants."

Over the years, Michigan has designed, manufactured and "exported" a lot of things, some of them pretty good and some of them fairly bad. I'd say that arguably the biggest piece of crap we've ever produced is Michael Moore. The man is a disgrace. He's a walking, talking, contradiction who can't be taken seriously on any issue, whether he's babbling about union contracts or where he's going to find his next extra large pizza. If the pro-union people ever had any credibility, they lost it all when Moore came before them and they enthusiastically cheered his rubbish.

Since I firmly believe that there is never an inappropriate moment to quote Christopher Hitchens:

"Europeans think Americans are fat, vulgar, greedy, stupid, ambitious and ignorant and so on. And they've taken as their own, as their representative American, someone who actually embodies all of those qualities."

Ragnar Danneskjold had something to say on that too. said the original story didn't matter, just what people derived from it, the credo of "take from the rich to give to the poor"
