V for Vendetta - 2011

 

After the horrific mass murder in Tucson
yesterday I had trouble sleeping last night. When my mind gets
overloaded, I can’t sleep. I came downstairs at 3:30 am and for some
reason decided now was the time to watch the movie V For Vendetta.
Many people had recommended this movie over the years, but I had never
gotten around to it. Well, on the day after the attempted assassination
of a Congresswoman and murder of six others, including a Federal Judge,
this movie provided a vision into what could happen next in this
country.

The 2006 movie centers around a man wearing
a Guy Fawkes mask who refers to himself as V.  He is a bold,
charismatic freedom fighter driven to exact revenge on those who
disfigured him.  The film is an allegory of oppression and coercion by
government. It is a declaration against government intervention into the
lives of the citizens. He blows up the Old Bailey on November 5, Guy
Fawkes Day. He promises to blow up Parliament one year later on the 5th
of November. His speech at the beginning of the movie, broadcast to all
of England, explains what happened in a fictional England and what is
happening here:

“Good evening, London.

Allow me first to apologize, for this interruption. I do, like
many of you, appreciate the comforts of everyday routine, the security,
the familiar, the tranquility, repetition… I enjoy them as much as any
bloke. But in the spirit of commemoration, whereby those important
events of the past, usually associated with someone’s death or the end
of some awful, bloody struggle, are celebrated with a nice holiday, I
thought we could mark this November the 5th, a day that is certainly 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 think
that even now orders are been shouted into telephones and men with guns
will soon be on their way. Why? Because when the truncheon maybe used in
lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer
the means to meaning, and for those who would listen, the enunciation
of the 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 problems that 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
Suttler. 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 400 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.”

  

The movie’s central theme revolves around
the 1605 Gunpowder Plot to blow up Parliament. The plot was a failed
assassination attempt against King James I of England by a group of
provincial English Catholics led by Robert Catesby. The plan was to blow
up the House of Lords during the State Opening of Parliament on
November 5, 1605, as the prelude to a popular revolt in the Midlands
during which James’s nine-year-old daughter, Princess Elizabeth, was to
be installed as the Catholic head of state.

    

Guy Fawkes, who had 10 years of military experience fighting in the
Spanish Netherlands in suppression of the Dutch Revolt, was given charge
of the explosives. The plot was revealed to the authorities in an
anonymous letter sent to William Parker, 4th Baron Monteagle. During a
search of the House of Lords at about midnight on November 4, 1605,
Fawkes was discovered guarding 36 barrels of gunpowder – enough to
reduce the House of Lords to rubble – and arrested. He was hanged
shortly thereafter. November the 5th has been celebrated ever since this
event with celebrations and fireworks.

Anarchy Has Arrived

There’s no certainty – only opportunity. V - V For Vendetta

 

As I watched hour after hour of coverage about the ambush and
assassination attempt on a Congresswoman from Arizona, I couldn’t help
but think this could be the spark for something bigger. There
were almost immediate reactions from the MSM that this murder was
instigated by the Tea Party. The liberal ideologue Paul Krugman blamed
the Republican Party for the murders. Apoplectic left wing faux
journalist Keith Olbermann described conservative commentators as
those ”who have so irresponsibly brought us to this time of domestic
terrorism”. The local sheriff, an Arizona State Senator and the
Congresswoman’s father all blamed the Tea Party, either directly or
indirectly. Based on my reading of the murderer’s writings and youtubes,
he appears to be a mentally deranged psycho. Somehow, every liberal MSM
“journalist” has concluded that this was due to the contentious
political atmosphere in the country. This is code for “we need less
dissent”. Stop disagreeing with the Obama agenda. If you disagree, you
are dangerous.

The scene in the movie that made me think of yesterday’s events was
toward the end of the movie when Inspector Finch, who is trying to
capture V, has a feeling about what is going to happen:

Finch: I had to see it. There wasn’t much left.
But when I was there it was strange. I suddenly had this feeling that
everything was connected. It’s like I could see the whole thing, one
long chain of events that stretched all the way back before Larkhill. I
felt like I could see everything that happened, and everything that is
going to happen. It was like a perfect pattern, laid out in front of me.
And I realized we’re all part of it, and all trapped by it.

Dominic: So do you know what’s gonna happen?


Finch: No, it was a feeling. But I can guess.
With so much chaos, someone will do something stupid. And when they do,
things will turn nasty. And then Sutler will be forced to do the only
thing he knows how to do. At which point, all V needs to do is keep his
word. And then…
[Dominoes collapse with TV footages showing conflicts between rioting citizens and the anti-riot police

The line that hit me like a ton of bricks was, “With so much chaos, someone will do something stupid.” As
Inspector Finch was speaking these words a scene of a policeman
shooting a 10 year old girl with a Guy Fawkes Mask on is shown and then
an angry mob surrounds and kill the policeman.

Yesterday, someone did something stupid. The question is what happens next.

Already, a fringe religious fanatic pastor and his followers, who
have previously picketed the military funerals of Americans killed in
Iraq, issued this press release:

 ”Thank God for the shooter – 6 dead! WBC will picket their
funerals!”  It continues on to condemn what it condemns as violence
unleashed on WBC by a “hateful nation…hoping to silence our kind warning
to obey God and flee the wrath to come.” 

There is one thing I’m sure about. This will not result in more civil
discourse. Opposing ideologies will become further entrenched in their
positions. Those who attempt to be peacemakers will be shouted down.
Passions will rise as they did in the 1850s when another member of
Congress was badly injured as national passions flamed over slavery.  On
May 19, 1856, Senator Charles Sumner of Massachusetts, a prominent
voice in the anti-slavery movement, delivered an impassioned speech
denouncing the compromises that helped perpetuate slavery and led to
confrontations in Kansas. Sumner singled out Senator Andrew Pickens
Butler of South Carolina. Butler, who had recently been incapacitated by
a stroke and was recuperating in South Carolina, was held to particular
ridicule by Sumner. Sumner said that Butler had taken as his mistress
“the harlot, slavery.” Sumner also referred to the South as an immoral
place for allowing slavery, and he mocked South Carolina.

Preston Brooks, a member of the House of Representatives from South
Carolina, was particularly incensed. Not only had the fiery Sumner
ridiculed his home state, but Brooks was the nephew of Andrew Butler,
one of Sumner’s targets. Brooks walked to Sumner’s desk in the Senate
chamber, and reportedly said: “You have libeled my state and slandered
my relation, who is aged and absent. And I feel it to be my duty to
punish you.” With that, Brooks struck the seated Sumner across the head
with his heavy cane. Brooks continued raining blows with the cane upon
Sumner, who tried to fend them off with his arms. As might be expected,
northern newspapers responded to the violent attack on the Senate floor
with horror. Southern newspapers published editorials lauding Brooks,
claiming that the attack was a justified defense of the south and
slavery. Supporters sent Brooks new canes, and Brooks claimed that
people wanted pieces of the cane he used to beat Sumner as “holy
relics.”

This attack was a foreshadowing of what was to come – the deaths of
600,000 Americans in the space of four years – over 4% of the male
population. Yesterday’s tragedy is another step deeper into this Fourth Turning.
Every Fourth Turning has proven to be a decisive era of secular
upheaval, when the values regime propels the replacement of the old
civic order with a new one. 

Words Matter, Ideas Can Change the World

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people. V – V For Vendetta

 

The prior Fourth Turnings in U.S. history (American Revolution, Civil
War, Great Depression/World War II) all proved to be secular upheavals
of immense proportions, tore apart the existing civil order, but
had numerous moments of danger and uncertainty about the future turn of
events. We are six years into a twenty year Crisis saeculum. Every
Crisis intensifies as time progresses to an ultimate crescendo. The
initial financial crisis built to a dramatic peak in September 2008 as
the government and Federal Reserve have taken extraordinary and immoral
actions to protect Wall Street banks. Since September 11, 2001, the
government has used fear as its primary means of controlling the
American population. Fear of terrorists, fear of flying, fear of WMD,
fear of mushroom clouds, fear of the axis of evil, fear of economic
collapse, fear of a Great Depression, and now fear of the Tea Party
movement. This attack by a crazy man will lead to further losses of
liberties and freedoms. That is a certainty.

Americans have been lulled into a false sense of security. V’s speech to the people of England invokes Ben Franklin:

“I know why you did it. I know you
were afraid! Who wouldn’t be? War, terror, disease… There were a myriad
problems that 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 Suttler. He promised you order, he
promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent,
obedient, consent.”
- V - V For Vendetta

Those who would give up Essential Liberty
to purchase a little Temporary Safety,
deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

- Ben Franklin

This country has not reached the level of control and fear seen in Orwell’s 1984 and V For Vendetta, yet.
We are moving relentlessly in that direction. Surveillance, monitoring,
spying, censorship, secret prisons, predator drones, and conforming to
state rules and regulations put citizens further under the thumb of an
all powerful state. The freedom to dissent, the freedom to be left
alone, the freedom to speak out against injustice, the freedom to
disagree with your government, and the freedom to present your ideas
without fear of retribution or penalty are essential in a democratic
society. The next phase of this Fourth Turning will surely include
another downward spiral in financial markets as un-payable debts
accumulate to a tipping point level. When ATM machines stop spitting out
twenties, food shelves are bare and gas stations are shuttered, social
chaos will ensue. The government will react with further command and
control measures. In V For Vendetta, the government
creates a terrorist incident in order to gain unquestioned control over
the population. Americans will need to be more vigilant than they have
been over the last ten years in keeping an eye on their government.  

In the movie, Parliament is the symbol of government power. The
thought of destroying this symbol provided the people with a renewed
sense of purpose and power. By V’s destruction of the building, the
people regained their hope for the future. The symbol of America is the
Statue of Liberty. The pedestal at the base of the statue states:

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The idea of America is still alive. Whether it is kept alive is up to us. Words matter. Ideas can change the world.

 ”I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be
forgot… But what of the man? I know his name was Guy Fawkes and I know,
in 1605, he attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament. But who was
he really? What was he like? We are told to remember the idea, not the
man, because a man can fail. He can be caught, he can be killed and
forgotten, but 400 years later, an idea can still change the world. I’ve
witnessed first hand the power of ideas, I’ve seen people kill in the
name of them, and die defending them… but you cannot kiss an idea,
cannot touch it, or hold it… ideas do not bleed, they do not feel pain,
they do not love… And it is not an idea that I miss, it is a man… A man
that made me remember the Fifth of November. A man that I will never
forget.” –

Many of our freedoms that are left where stolen on about Aug 2008 with the passage of HR 8791, yet no outcry from many. Just silence.  Most of us have no clue, only a hint, as to what it can do to us.

And then there was the Patriot Act which was the first bad boy to really crap on U.S. Freedoms around 2001. Then again, we bowed out heads like sheep crazing in the field.

The Representative from the 12th District of PA is a Democrat, John Murtha. The bill does not show up at either Thomas, GovTrack or Open Congress.

You are right. I was spoofed on this one. Called the person who gave it to me. He said it was a mockery of the other acts.

Such as the Patriot Act and Homeland Security which is real and not a spoof.

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

When push comes to shove with our Federal Government, with us being fed up with them shoving things down our throats like the Anti-American Patriot Act,  too much feeling us up by the hands of the DHS, forcing us to buy things we don't want etc, the time will eventually come to violence and taking matters into our own hands.

I don't want to hear the bellyaching and the crying when lots more bodies hit the floor.

Our government servants either address our concerns and talk to us about those concerns on the news for all to hear peacefully, or they get to discuss those issues at the end of a barrel of a gun. It's their choice.

Please keep your power dry till things really hit the fan, stock up on ammo, gold, silver, and food. Lots of others will provide plenty of cover for you when the time comes to water the tree some more.

Ahhh, perhaps you are a fan of Reggae music.  Lots of Reggae is bnased on opression and the struggle to survive.  Downpressor is a good old one written by Peter Tosh, back in the early 1970's when he was with Bob Marley and the Wailers. I've been on a Reggae kick for a few years.  XM radio has a great station.

DosZap,

BooBooyomama as you call him is no better than Bushit as I call him.  I did not vote for either.

I did hope that Bambi would do something about the Banksters.  Especially when he said the Bankstersjust don't get it after the banksters garnished themselves with bonuses from taxpayer money. GS was bankrupt until we bailed them out. It seems that that will be a lost wish too.  We have a much larger problem in our nation. It seems that whoever becomes president is dragged in a back room by the FED and is told how that part of our dysfunctional government goes.

To date, I only see three politicians that I like. Alan Grayson, Ron Paul, and Bernie Sanders. They seem to care about my number one issue that causes the most grief to the average non billionaire in our nation. After that, everyone appears hopeless. 

Other famous quotes: "I've abandoned free market principles to save the free market system." --George W. Bush

Now you know why I call him Bushit.

Definitely agree that the cross section of Euros I've met have thought to a much greater extent than many Americans that government is the solution to all, or virtually all, of our problems.

Health care is the obvious example.  It is beyond the comprehension of most Europeans that many Americans don't want govt. to run healthcare.

When a government becomes too large or takes on too much authority it becomes a threat to its own citizens.  This has been shown time and time again.

++Americans are not designed to be socially engineered like Europeans are.

++Americans were designed to be free and independant.

 

But end up being the very thing they fear the most - slaves in a system where up is down, black is white and right is wrong.  No wonder they all talk shite and haven't a fucking clue.

In the Long Emergency one possible means suggested of dealing with an unruley populace is a chemical or biological attack by the State on its own citizens.  I'm sure many will salute the crop duster emblazoned with 'the fag' as it flies over.

The problem you have is that you are utterly misinformed and completely indoctrinated into the belief that you are somehow superior and free (whatever that means).

Wake up to the programming.  You are a slave in a system that demands everything you have and gives essentially nothing back in return.  You are being exploited and fed you own faeces served up as fois gras.  Your freedom is your enslavement and you have swallow this BS hook line and sinker.

Thank goodness you found ZH - maybe, just maybe you will start to question some of those strongly held beliefs and then maybe you stand a chance.

 

Otherwise excellent trolling - please serve up some more.

 

BTW - what a fucking excellent day for news.  GATA on the FED; MA Supremo on Fraudclosure and good 'ole Newt on taking everyone's pension.  Wow!!

The thing I find fascinating about the Guy Fawkes plot is that it would have worked if only he had kept his mouth shut. He had enough gun powder in the right location to wipe out most of the English aristocracy. But then he told someone about the plot who told someone in authority and he was caught. Then he was tortured and drawn-and-quartered if I remember correctly.

Bottom line, this Jim Quinn fellow [however well intentioned] is a political idiot. I saw the hokum V For Vendetta film a few years back. It’s nothing more than a childish revolution fantasy for the dumbed down masses. Very little goes through the mass media without intelligence agency direction and censorship… And if you watch commercial television on a regular basis you are almost certainly a brainwashed fool to at least a significant degree. If you disagree- turn the insidious device off for a year and get your news from the alternative media during that period. I guarantee when you turn it back on you will look at it with disgust. This shooting business is looking like an MK Ultra event. The congresswoman, from what I heard was pro 2nd Amendment and for enforcing the border with Mexico. The judge who was murdered was also concerned about border enforcement.

And get this- This was the federal judge who ruled against Clinton in the Sheriff Mack gun control victim disarmament case and was also in the process of ruling in a key case against the Obama administration in a move to seize homes and people’s bank accounts without due process. How Convenient.

In the US the food and water are being intentionally poisoned to dumb us down, sterilize us, to generate cancer and other diseases. The pentagon is running a massive program to put between 200-400 million tons of aerosolized aluminum oxide in the atmosphere along with barium salts and all sorts of other vile shit including desiccated (freeze-dried) blood cells. Vaccines have repeatedly found to contain live cancer virus and other novelties. The pentagon announced almost ten years ago that they were ‘experimenting’ with tranquilizing the public. There is evidence that that program is now widespread. The new mercury filled electronic light bulbs can actually function as microphones through the electrical grid so we can be illegally wire tapped en masse. So when the author of this article says we are not yet at 1984 levels he’s just another joker in the propaganda matrix.

"There is one thing I’m sure about."
 
September 11, 2001 was USSA government created.  THE paradigm shattering world event, a so-called 'terrorist incident' orchestrated to gain unquestioned control over the many blind, deaf and dumb of the world.  Americans, and especially writers like you SmokeyQuinn, will need to be much more vigilant and connect the obvious and undeniable scientific facts. 
 
The NWO/Nazi government uses fear as its primary means of control of the American sheep.
 
"Fear of foreign terrorists, fear of flying, fear of WMD, fear of mushroom clouds, fear of the axis of evil, fear of economic collapse, fear of a Great Depression,"... and fear of that biggest bogey man of all,... Osama Bin Laden and his magical band of 19 Arab elves.
 
"This attack by a crazy man will lead to further losses of liberties and freedoms. That is a certainty."
 
Your almost there... Get a stubby pencil out of your Mickey Mouse school bag and connect the rest of those great big dots.
 
I will check your very slow educational progress in Special Class next time you post on ZH.
.........................................................

Historian Adam Nicholson, in his book
 
God's Secretaries,
 
presents compelling evidence that Guy Fawkes was a patsy, and that the "extremist Catholic plot to blow up Parliament" was a set-up by minister Robert Cecil and his War Party.
 
The massively publicized Gunpowder Plot--the 9/11 of the 17th century--was designed to incite hatred of Catholics and trigger a century of war with Catholic Spain and Portugal.
 
It worked, and the anti-Catholic wars that followed built the British Empire.
 
V for Vendetta celebrates resistance against a fascist regime that has seized power through a state-sponsored terror attack falsely blamed on Muslims.
 
Sound familiar? The film's hero, V, wears a Guy Fawkes mask, recalling the first monumental act of state-sponsored false-flag terror in modern history--the "Gunpowder plot" of 1605, the origin of Guy Fawkes Day.
 
V for Vendetta asks the question: "If your own leaders were behind the worst terrorist attack in history, would you really want to know?"

how many people would survive if they were trained at a young age to own, handle, shoot, and carry a gun? This should be taught in every single junior high. has society gone completely mad? do folks not know that giving protective power sol...ely to the government eventually leads to their extinction on a long enough time line? Does anyone understand why the 'right to bear arms' came directly after the 'right to free speech'? Has anyone any idea how evil people can be, not just in the ghettos, but in the highest levels of power? What is happening to our country? Where is the sanity? Why do people continue to allow this to be debated on our televisions so that we can reach another 'compromise' which leads to less liberty? This has been the plan of incrementalists and Fabian gradualists since day one. How much more power needs to flow to Washington D.C., where there are 7-of-the-10 richest counties in America, before us average folks begin to wake up, stop fighting one another, and begin protecting our civil liberties? For the sake of our children's survival, please, stop surrending every last shred of protection that was once provided for us in the U.S. Constitution. IT IS NOT WORTH IT IN THE LONG-RUN.

...now I know what it feels like to be the manic street preacher on the soapbox that everyone walks past laughing. Next time I see that fella ranting, perhaps I'll stop and listen.

thank you for this post benb.

when I first began reading ZH, and eventually posting, this is the kind of thinking/reasoning I expected to find in abundance.

instead. . . ah, never mind.

Oh regional Indian's picture

benb, can you share your reading list/links?

The one about Mercury Bulbs as microphones? I want to see/read more on that.

My own theory is that the explosion in the density of mobile phone towers makes it possible to excite the mercury in the bulbs to the point that they explode. They are documented to have enough mercury to kill a room full of people if not handled properly.

Nowadays, sheeple have every bulb in their house changed to CFL. The EU is even going to ban the incandescent. 

Again, links/lists appreciated.

Nice one chap!

Not only are you invoking a work of fiction based upon British citizenry, or lack thereof, but you're perpetuating the surreptiously disingenuous unAmerican ideology foisted upon the dumbed-down-to-succumb; Raising the standard of Emma Lazarus, the poet, the socialist, and major role model for the Socialist Party and Zionist movement!

Well done, you pathetically brain-dead sheepster!

C.I.A. 'False Flag' PLAYBOOK, Chapter 1: Need some mush brain to commit armed robbery so that citizens willfully surrender civil liberties in the ensuing chaos? ...here is how it is done:

be sure to pick someone who is militarily trained so that they inflict targeted damaged to produce maximum fear amongst members of the public.

if somehow your patsy survives, then be sure to take him back into federal custody so you may deprogram him/pull him out of his trance-like state. How to do this is explained here, in Chapter 5:

Is it not ironic that the initials for Secret Service are SS.
