In 1972, the Movement for Economic Justice formed to promote progressive taxation and wealth redistribution in order to benefit all Americans. This concept for wealth redistribution similarly follows the beliefs of Robin Hood, a legendary figure originally from English folklore. A skilled archer and swordsman, he is a heroic outlaw that often acts as a champion of the people, fighting injustice and corruption by robbing from the rich and giving to the poor.
