Ah, V for Vendetta. Such a great movie and filled with those exceptional quotes that I wish I had been witty enough to think of. However, for us in America, there is another date that we all need to remember. For what good will the 5th of November do if nothing changes on the 4th? I believe there are quotes in this movie that we should ALL take to heart. I found a link to the full movie online and it is free. (I love a great deal) We should all watch this and if you have seen it before, refresh your memory with the words. I personally do not care about the lesbian crap that's in this movie, but the words and the way the people are living under severe communist rule should make each of us take notice of what is going on in today's political circle. The absolute power of a few will tell the many what to do and when to do it. Unless we stand. Here is the link to the movie:
Here are some of the best quotes:
“Remember, remember the fifth of November of gunpowder treason and plot. I know of no reason why the gun powder treason should ever be forgot.”
“Since mankind's dawn, a handful of oppressors have accepted the responsibility over our lives that we should have accepted for ourselves. By doing so, they took our power. By doing nothing, we gave it away. We've seen where their way leads, through camps and wars, towards the slaughterhouse.”
“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 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. ”
“But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you. I love you. With all my heart, I love you.”
“Our masters have not heard the people's voice for generations and it is much, much louder than they care to remember.”
“The ending is nearer than you think, and it is already written. All that we have left to choose is the correct moment to begin.”
“There's no flesh or blood within this cloak to kill. There's only an idea. Ideas are bulletproof.”
“Authority, when first detecting chaos at its heels, will entertain the vilest schemes to save its orderly facade.”
“Authority allows two roles: the torturer and the tortured. Twists people into joyless mannequins that fear and hate, while culture plunges into the abyss.”
“With so much chaos, someone will do something stupid. And when they do, things will turn nasty”
“With science, ideas can germinate within a bed of theory, form, and practice that assists their growth... But we as gardeners, must beware... for some seeds are the seeds of ruin... and the most iridescent blooms are often the most dangerous”
These are just a few of the wonderful quotes in this movie. But it should be a sobering thought to us that THIS is where we are headed if we do not do something now. There are many out in the world who will do anything to save their little Liar in Chief. They are blind and have no use for the truth. It eludes them. They flee from it just as a demon will flee from Christ. The fat first lady can't even pick the vegetables in her own stupid garden that someone else tilled, planted, watered and weeded. They are complaining that because of the shutdown, the vegetables will rot because there is no one there to pick them. Here's an idea.... DO IT YOURSELF you FAT WORTHLESS COW!
The people in control at the moment feel as though they are too good to do any work at all. The rest of us are nothing more that pests at best. Just a bunch of imbeciles standing in a line with our wallet at the ready to give, give, give to them. It is time now, fellow Patriots, to stand against tyranny and let this government know that they should indeed fear us for we no longer fear them!
