V Speech in V for Vendetta

Speech Transcript:

Good evening, London. Allow me first to apologize for this interruption. I do, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of every day routine – the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition. I enjoy them as much as any bloke. But in the spirit of commemoration, thereby those important events of the past usually associated with someone's death or the end of some awful bloody struggle, a celebration of a nice holiday, I thought we could mark this November the 5th, a day that is sadly no longer remembered, by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat.

There are of course those who do not want us to speak. I suspect even now, orders are being shouted into telephones, and men with guns will soon be on their way. Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. 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 who are 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, terror, disease. 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, obedient consent. Last night, I sought to end that silence. Last night, I destroyed the Old Bailey, to remind this country of what it has forgotten. More than four hundred years ago, a great citizen wished to embed the 5th of November forever in our memory. His hope was to remind the world that fairness, justice, and freedom are more than words – they are perspectives. So if you've seen nothing, if the crimes of this government remain unknown to you, then I would suggest you allow the 5th of November to pass unmarked.

But if you see what I see, if you feel as I feel, and if you would seek as I seek, then I ask you to stand beside me one year from tonight, outside the gates of Parliament, and together we shall give them a 5th of November that shall never, ever be forgot.

V for Vendetta rocks! The religious folk who say "jesus is coming to save us" is the same tactic Trump, Alex Travis types and those spreading conspiracy theories all employ. They mis-lead as many people as possible into becoming 'believers'. In other words, brainwash gullible folks into believing nonsense. Ain't nobody saving you except for your self in our opinion. In part the author of the story V for Vendetta is pointing out that it's not only important it's vital that we be freed from those false powers and untruths in order to truly be free. Live in whatever fantasy one would like but fear is simply a tool of the devil, conspiracy theorists, religious mis-leaders and the like whose aim is to serve their ulterior motives for power over as many people as possible.

It is good and right to stand up for principles. But the principle that outweighs them all is the principle of faith in God. How long do we live? One hundred years? When we are gone, this world goes on, just as has it existed for thousands of years before we got here. But there will come a time of the end, when Jesus returns and takes all His people to the new Heavens and Earth, and this old one is destroyed because of corruption. So, stand up for good principles, but mostly prepare for your position with God in the New Universe.
