Anyone ever see the Movie "V" for Vendetta?
I just watched it again last night.....
Something seems awfully familiar with this story.
Too many Similarities to name.
Here's just a few...
b] Quote from "V"
Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with
this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you
saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission.
How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth
be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War,
There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic
you turned to the now high chancellor, Adam Sutler. He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent,
Quote from "V":Our story begins, as these stories often do, with a young up-and-coming politician. He's a deeply religious man and a member
of the conservative party. He is completely single-minded convictions and has no regard for the political process. Eventually, his party launches a
special project in the name of 'national security'.
At first, it is believed to be a search for biological weapons and it is pursued regardless of its cost. However, the true goal of the project is
power, complete and total hegemonic domination. The project, however, ends violently... but the efforts of those involved are not in vain, for a new
ability to wage war is born from the blood of one of their victims. Imagine a virus - the most terrifying virus you can, and then imagine that you and
you alone have the cure. But if your ultimate goal is power, how best to use such a weapon?
It is at this point in our story that along comes a spider. He is a man seemingly without a conscience; for whom the ends always justify the means and
it is he who suggests that their target should not be an enemy of the country but rather the country itself. Three targets are chosen to maximize the
effect of the attack: a school, a tube station, and a water-treatment plant. Several hundred die within the first few weeks. Until at last the true
goal comes into view. Before the St. Mary's crisis, no one would have predicted the outcome of the elections. No one. But after the election, lo and
behold, a miracle. Some believed that it was the work of God himself, but it was a pharmaceutical company controlled by certain party members made
them all obscenely rich.
But the true genius of the plan was the fear. A year later, several extremeists are tried, found guilty, and executed while a memorial is builterected
to canonize their victims. Fear became the ultimate tool of this government. And through it our politician was ultimately appointed to the newly
created position of High Chancellor. The rest, as they say, is history.
