DBD 11.05.09  Remember

Remember, remember the Fifth of November,

The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,

I know of no reason

Why the Gunpowder Treason

Should ever be forgot.

 

Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent

To blow up the King and Parli'ment.

Three-score barrels of powder below

To prove old England's overthrow;

By God's providence he was catch'd

With a dark lantern and burning match.

Holloa boys, holloa boys, let the bells ring.

Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!

Happy Guy Fawkes' day!  A day remembered not for what happened, but rather what happened not.  According to an in-flight magazine I read (which writes of a much different celebration than wikipedia), today is the day the British celebrate their right to voice their public discontent.  This celebration takes shape through the exploding of fireworks, the burning of effigies, and I'm sure... public drunkeness throughout the kingdom.

The one known as V uses this forgotten holiday as the bookends to exact his personal vendetta and spark a subsequent revolution over the autocratic Thatcher  Sutler regime.  Prancing around destorying old buildings and murdering the gatekeepers to society V attempts what Guy Fawkes failed to accomplish.   His overarching premise is to incite the people to reclaim their consent, their self-rule and reclaim their country.  On this fifth of November, let us too, celebrate our rights, let us remind our ruling bodies that they should fear their people, not the people fearing their rule.  But before we destroy parliament (SPOILIER: SPOILER: I'm still super-pissed they showed that part of the movie in the trailer), let us assess the state of affairs at the territory formerly known as Bear.  Let us declare our public discontent!  Let us burn our despotic leaders, let us explode the stadium of Autzen, let us drink openly in public.  But I must ask of you first, whom shall be the first to burn?  The J-Empire?  The Marshawnthusiasts?  The Jahviditician?  Bob Gregory? Kevin Riley?  Whom?  Voice Your Discontent!
