Remember, remember the 5th of November

the Gunpowder Treason and Plot. I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot...
I don't know what it is about the movie V for Vendetta but part of it really appeals to me. I think its the anarchy. Instead of boring you with a review, I will leave you with one of the best speeches I've heard in a movie.

VoilĂ ! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.

The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.

Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.

There are of course many more fabulous speeches in this movie and I could bore you to death with them all. I won't. Instead, I will leave you with the same message. Think about your actions. Think about the actions of government - in your own country and in those around the world. Life won't be easy but it should not be terrifying.

There's no certainty - only opportunity.
