Vendetta is a much beloved favorite of mine. His ability to craft his words is inspiring. Everytime I see this movie or watch clips, I imagine as you have suggested, how little transitions and word changes would take this speech and turn it into a modern testiment to the current level of social disorder we are currently living with.
While I dont necessarily condone such violent acts as the demolition of the house of parliment (or of the house of congress in the US), I do see how in the not so distant future, free and thinking people might have that very same idea and it would be acceptable.
The free nations are only just beginning to feel the pinch of what an oppressive government is like. We have yet to truly be held under the jackboots of the great and mad dictators. We still live like free men and women and take for granted the minor ills of our government. Before you say it, I know that there are those that are speaking out. While commendable, it is a fruitless effort to yell words of sanity to the deaf/dumb/blind that lead this nation.
Perhaps we will see a true leader rise among the people, ready to toss of the yoke weighing down the once truly free peoples of todays faux-free nations.
