Robin Hood steals from the richMost people were thrilled with the idea of "stealing from the rich to give to the poor", after all it was just that the rich could contribute in taxes to support poor people's needs.
This helped to pass the first law forcing people to pay taxes to the state.
Robin Hood is cheating us allIn England the king asked all citizens contributions for the financing of specific causes, such as war or the construction of a special building.
Just till 1874 when they created a new law forcing the rich to pay taxes permanently, this law was extended to the United States and then to the other countries as we know it today.
How governments are deceiving peopleAt first these taxes were intended only for the rich and the people who had properties and the middle and working class where duped to voting for such laws believing that it would only affect the rich.
But the government became greedy and forced the working and middle class to pay taxes even more to fill up state reserves.
How do governments spend taxes?They spend taxes to pay all government workers salaries and to pay the rich in the form of contracts with large corporations.
Kiyosaki explains how the rich use large corporations to hold and make more money.
A corporation is a legal entity protected by the law, so money is also legally protected and they will always find a way to pay less taxes but increase revenues even if taxes rates are higher.
Seeing al this the working and middle classes are the main support to the poor

I think he was right and that is why there is the rat race and they are the real poor in modern society, the slaves of credits and loans.
