Modern Day Robin Hood Steals Massive Sums of Money From Banks to Invest in Communities in Need

Cassius Methyl | The Anti Media

A man in Spain named Enric Duran has been in hiding for 14 months, after taking almost half a million euros out in loans he never intended to repay, to donate to activism and create alternatives to the current paradigm.

He says his work created opportunities, and that it “generated a movement that allowed us to push forward with the construction of alternatives. And it allowed us to build a powerful network that groups together these initiatives.”

He continued to say ” I saw that on one side, these social movements were building alternatives but that they lacked resources and communication capacities. Meanwhile, our reliance on perpetual growth was creating a system that created money out of nothing.”

Duran is particularly interested in finding agorist solutions to capitalism, and he is exactly right, these things often do lack funding.

It is difficult enough to just keep one’s head above water in the system and make enough money to survive, let alone take on the financial initiative to get out of the system or start building permanent solutions to dysfunctional aspects of the paradigm we live in.

Of course, it is set up that way to make escaping the system nearly impossible, but this man is an example of why agorism is absolutely possible. You might just have to get a bit creative and risk being locked in a cage.

In my opinion, it is completely worth the risk, as it seems the only way out of our situation is to start living lives irrelevant from the system.

Since you’re here…

…We have a small favor to ask. Fewer and fewer people are seeing Anti-Media articles as social media sites crack down on us, and advertising revenues across the board are quickly declining. However, unlike many news organizations, we haven’t put up a paywall because we value open and accessible journalism over profit — but at this point, we’re barely even breaking even. Hopefully, you can see why we need to ask for your help. Anti-Media’s independent journalism and analysis takes substantial time, resources, and effort to produce, but we do it because we believe in our message and hope you do, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting and finds value in it helps fund it, our future can be much more secure. For as little as $1 and a minute of your time, you can support Anti-Media. Thank you. Click here to support us
