    Default Robin Hood

    What type would Robin Hood have been?

    He robbed from the rich and gave to the poor. Of course the poor would financially get the upper hand without Robin considering the long term economic impact of his principles.

    Hood was written as a hero but willing to employ a lethal weapon against a hierarchy which may or may not have been customary at the time

    In Stratiyevskaya’s comparison between LSI and LIE, she said that the Mirage relationship was like that between the Sheriff of Nottingham and Robin Hood.

    Guess who was whom?

    I see Robin Hood fitting the SEE archetype. Rebelling against aristocracy and the laws he disagrees with in service to his own morality and sense of what's right.

    I would say that everyone lives in service to their own mortality. ツ

    Pretty sure an LSI would get bored then irritated by the focus society would be putting on the illegal financial exchange between classes. One class would be butthurt, the other would be extatic. Too much banal emotion for an LSI to consistently deal with

    Are you talking mortality or morality?

    ESTp is possible. The charisma combined with the world view checks out.

    @Stray Cat, the LSI is the law-enforcer Sheriff, and the LIE is the resource-raiding Robin Hood.

    That's what LIE's do. We resource-raid.

    The clearest example of this is the statement by corporate raider LIE Romney look-a-likes is "but the pension fund was just sitting there."

    https://www.nytimes.com/1986/09/28/b...is-piracy.html

    The NY times called it "piracy". Lol.

    Right after Romney's corporate raiding and the decimation of the worker's retirement funds, most of what he did was made illegal. But guess what? He's rich now.

    Yo ho ho, matey.

    Interestingly enough, when you get a bunch of LIEs together, you have a Pirate Republic.

    They raid, but they are democratic about it.

    In the early eighteenth century a number of the great pirate captains joined forces, including Blackbeard, Black Sam Bellamy, and Charles Vane. This infamous "Flying Gang" was more than simply a band of thieves: Many of its members were sailors, indentured servants, and runaway slaves who turned to piracy as a revolt against the conditions they suffered on ships and plantations. Together they established a crude but distinctive democracy in the Bahamas, carving out their own zone of freedom in which servants were free, blacks could be equal citizens, and leaders were chosen or deposed by a vote.

    Given the pandemic I'm not so sure mortality and morality aren't damn near the same thing.
