Of all the popular fraud schemes Robin Hood theme continues to amaze and baffle me most. It has defied time, mortality and eternity and still works in 21st century. Robinhood continues to be the opium of the hoi-polloi or junta. It mesmerizes and has a box office collection of few lakh crores in just first few weeks as against 100 crores Bollywood craves. Lets see how it works.
A Demagogue Jholelal Fakeer who claims a peasant background, typically has a beard, a 56 inch chest and looks like one shown below declares:
He is attempting to raid and rob the rich. Its a WAR // Rich are the biggest evil it doesnt matter that they are hardworking, smart and intelligent. WAR cry invariably fools the fools
He gives a hope of windfall wealth (say Rs 16 lakhs in cash), to each illiterate, lazy and brainless Gareeb (poor).. They wont even have to move their ASS for it.
He further promises to distribute the fruits of entire loot. Kaala dhan from kaale log will tana tan go to gareeb’s accounts JanDhan . OMFG, this creates erection ( Entertainment) mightier than the number “Chhamiya ki choli” item. Fakeer knows he needs to deliver nothing. The drunken imbecile dolts are already doing Naagin dance and high on this opium.
Pandemonium reigns. Popularity breaks the roofs… Just 31% fools are enough to drown the remaining 69% population which can think. Fakeer grabs the power and continues to make an ass of fools
Once ensconced, the scoundrel ( Fakeer) changes the gear. He actually does a raid and loot on the poor. New and higher Cess emerge. Higher and wider taxes are declared. Greater curbs are put on the cash. This brings majority of money from poor under Scoundrel’s control.
Fakeer now lives in a palatial million square feet bungalow, rides a fleet of BMW 750 i, and flies the world in luxury Chartered planes . All the while he maintains a mask of a Fakeer, a messiah and a humble peasant.
He subsequently siphons the cash pile back to rich industrialists, bureaucrats, bankers and Pigs who were active or silent accomplishes in the fabled Robin hood raids. This siphoning is done in forms of loan restructuring, interest waivers and huge contracts (Statue making)
The scoundrels thus are Nibor Doohs (Robinhood spelled backwards) and paradoxically rob and kill the poor, not the other way as believed or preceived
