What a great movie this is. Welcome to the world of crony capitalism in full bloom.

Unfortunately the main character in V is an advocate of violence. Violence, death and destruction are terrible things. People die. Mothers weep. Children lose fathers. Commerce is disrupted. People lose jobs. War is not good.

But we should not be so politically correct as to not enjoy this fine film. Maybe I’ll rent it on Netflix while I watch the election returns tonight.

Below V’s stirring speech about the 5th of November, Guy Fawkes Day, today, and a society which has given up its liberty for security.
