Of all the popular fraud schemes, Robin Hood theme continues to amaze and baffle me the most. It has defied time, mortality and eternity and still works in 21st century.
Robinhood continues to be the opium of the hoi-polloi . He mesmerizes and has a box office collection of few lakh crores as against 100 crores Bollywood craves. Lets see how it works.
A Demagogue Jholelal Fakeer who claims a peasant background, typically has a trimmed beard, a fake 56 inch chest and may looks like the one below. He declares:
He is launching a WAR against the rich. This war will give a of windfall wealth (say Rs 16 lakhs in cash), to each idiot, lazy and brainless Gareeb (poor).. Nobody will even have to move even their ASS for.The organized loot and plunder he will do, will be distributed . Kaala dhan from kaale log will tana tan flow into to gareeb’s accounts JanDhan .
OMFG (Oh my fucking god), this creates mammoth erection among all bhakts and dolts. . Fakeer smiles inwards as he 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 loots on the poor. In the suffering, he tells the idiots that they are doing a service to nation. New and higher cess emerge on every thing. Higher and wider taxes are declared. Greater curbs are put on the cash. This brings majority of money from poor under Scoundrel’s control.
The Fakeer now starts living in a palatial million square feet bungalow in a top metro, wears Rs 12 lakh suits, rides a fleet of BMW 750i, flies the world in luxury Chartered planes. As a homo throws himself on any sexy male he encounters. 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 Dooh (Robinhood spelled backwards) and paradoxically rob and kill the poor, not the other way as believed or perceived.
