This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
In two hundred, three hundred years, the Somali pirates will be romanticized in fiction.
Same reason as our own era often romanticizes the pirates of three hundred years ago.
Why wait that long? Look at how many non-piratical murderers and thugs get romanticized into "rebels against the system" when the reality is closer to "violent short-sighted moron who feels entitled to everything he can take" within days (sometimes hours) of being captured.
