Prediction 35 “21st Century Robin Hood” (Posted August 14) reads: They will hack into accounts and steal from the filthy rich, who have reputations for greed and self-serving attitudes and give the money to the un-entitled, and those desperately in need of help. Though criminals of the 21st century, they will be seen as heroes dubbed under the banner of “Robin Hood”. Unclear on a timeframe. It is expected this will have international implications.
RT News Headline (August 17th) reads: Austerity-era ‘Robin Hood’: Spanish mayor masterminds robberies to feed the poor.
“A Spanish mayor has become a cult hero in the austerity-gripped country after orchestrating several thefts at local supermarkets, giving the stolen food to the poor. The mayor proudly said he is ready to face prosecution, branding the poverty in Spain “a disgrace.” During the thefts, Juan Manuel Sanchez Gordillo, mayor of the southern town of Marinaleda, was reportedly seen outside the shop shouting encouragement. Trolleys laden with staple items like pasta and oil were stolen by labor unionists intending to pass on the goods to struggling families in the area.” Quoted by RT
My Comments: It’s an interesting read, and I enjoyed predicting this unique prediction which is a far cry from the horror I usually predict. What is clearly missing is the money theft, whether by hacking or outright theft, its possible the theft of finances is the next escalation or perhaps an unrelated copycat of these Robin Hood tactics. Either way I am a huge fan of Juan Manuel Sanchez Gordillo the Robin Hood of the 21st Century.
