The Parable of Jesse James: Keynesian crime?

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Discordia: The Parable of Jesse James

Jesse James once sought shelter at a lonely farmhouse. The widow there apologized for her poor hospitality. She said she had very little money and despaired of paying the debt collector, who was coming imminently to demand $1,400.

James gave her $1,400 and told her to get a receipt. Then he hid outside and watched the road.

The debt collector arrived, looking grim, and entered the house. A few minutes later he emerged, looking pleased.

James accosted him, took back the $1,400, and rode off.

Don’t just rob from the rich and give to the poor; instead, rob from the rich, give to the poor, have the poor give to the rich, and then rob the rich a second time. Everyone wins! (For some reason, this seems Keynesian.)
