Well, he was an outlaw in a corrupt government. I've only seen the movies, but, from what I understand, his land or rights or nobility, whatever, was actually stripped from him via ursurping government. His ultimate goal was a support for wealthy, noble land owners like himself, which would be similar to a republican in the modern day. He was the 1%. Smarter, meaner, leaner, more educated, better work ethic, broader vision of something greater- he was a leader for the liberals. He was the man who the OWS followed, since the average tools who surrounded him and whom he helped were weak, poor, incapable, of lousy upbringing and with no comprehension of authority. The fact that he robbed from the rich/government to give to the poor may seem like a socialist agenda, but it was actually a job with a purpose through which he excercised his honed skills and his brilliant ideas, employing underlings as he saw fit to the ultimate end of regaining his land and becoming a Lord once again. He was 1 a wealthy 1% who ripped off the government, used the people, was successful, talented and capable (capitalist) and far more interested in his own freedom based on the conservative or old school value system that he was raised with than socialist ideals for everybody else. He was a right wing conservative capitalist. He would've voted republican. He would quit his whole "stealing from the rich and giving to the poor" tirade once taxation was normal and he had all his goodies back (not to mention a hot new bride, if I'm not mistaken).
