Vee the people of the United States of America…This is a public service announcement in commemoration of Guy Fawkes Day, accelerant to ignite a bonfire. In as much the man was a representation, a reminder that it is through words we find our expression to ideas.

Ideas that are bullet proof (tear gas proof :), armored with these ideas, they have the potential that can change the world. Why? Because most importantly they represent that you care, not simply for yourself, but for others, you see how they see, you feel how they feel and you nobly stand up. Now in honor of this most important auspicious occasion I’d like to reintroduce you to your own selves with a a simple few words that changed the course of human history. Like holding up a mirror, a reminder of the justice furnished in these ideas and demonstrated by your action. They’re altogether from a very different source but reflective of the exact same principles: “People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.” - V - sofarsoShawn
“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another.” “…Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” * - sofarsoShawn
HAVE A FAWEKING HAPPY 5TH OF NOVEMBER ___ * Note: You should all know which document those quotes come and wherein the justice of your cause derives. // ** That was the most fun thing I've written for a long time :) - sofarsoShawn
Happy Guy Fawkes Day...and Bonfire Night! - Prosey BUTTONS!
WOOHhhoooo0000 Thanks Prosey ~ let's get pyro! - sofarsoShawn
*grins with aerosol can & lighter at the ready* - Prosey BUTTONS!
Oh, I was just trying to be cool and fit in with the #OWS kids. My mom's forbidden me to play with matches, and be near scissors or any sharp object without supervision. I was just going flick the switch to my electric fireplace...that's bonfire cool right? - sofarsoShawn
I thought he was a representation that you can try and blow up the government to rid the people of a Protestant king to install in place a Catholic one - Johnny from iPhone
LOL yes, that's is exactly right ub how Hannity and or the B-D list broadcasters we get on FawkesNEWS during the the weekend would portray it. So you're wrong. Guy Fawkes was Catholic, but King Henry the VIII was not a protestant but made up his own religion, Anglicanism, so he could divorce his 4th-ish wife and mary another without the interference of Rome. The King ruling by the "divine" right of god, then made it punishable by death to reject if they didn't reject their religious tradition, splitting up families in order tow worship him. - sofarsoShawn
Of course this is wrong, injust. Now I have to refer to that know it all bitch Wikipedia.org ~ the gunpowder plot was in reaction to this persecution, Fawkes as he called himself was found tired and convicted to be executed but stood his ground and explained his positron so that even KIng James was impressed by his and is sometimes referred to as "the only man ever to enter Parliament with honest intentions" - sofarsoShawn
Nextly, this all changed with V for Vendeta and the brothers Wachowski-zation of the graphic novel. He became a symbol of morality, of ain't gonna take no shit attitude, standing up for justice, and ultimately the questionable? justice in enacting his revenge in 10 fold. Moving on, yes, you could say I keep being circled jerked on G+ by those who are like hey those quotes sound familiar but they're not from the movie. Well exactly no they're not. - sofarsoShawn
They're taken directly from that famous document commonly known as the declaration of independence from wherein the justice of the American Revolution is outlined and from wherein the justice of the #OWS movement is derived. For the people and of the people. 99% vee 1% where's the 99%'s voice, where's their vote? (To use a Green Movement slogan :) ~ I love the FF'ing Persians :) Okee dokeee, so In conclusion or more accurately, I'm tired of thinking... - sofarsoShawn
*chuckling* Johnny - yes, he was known as the "Catholic terrorist" for being part of the plot to blow up the House of Lords...there is a LOT of history to the Gunpowder Plot - a lot of blended history still wrapped up in unknowable mystery, since the plotters were all executed before any first hand information could be drawn from them - their "guilt" was a foregone conclusion. However, Catholics in the 15- & 1600s were incredibly oppressed ... the battleground between Catholics & Protestants was (and symbolically still is) the stuff of legends. However, what V represents with the anonymity of the Guy Fawkes mask is an *IDEA* that freedom from tyranny is the order of the day. Many, if not most, reasonable free-thinking people agree with that idea, and don't try to put ridiculous spin on it or try to juxtapose the actual history of the man overtop the idea his visage represents today. - Prosey BUTTONS!
And I want the graphic novel. *nod* - Prosey BUTTONS!
buu but but, one sec I'm still ranting :) - sofarsoShawn
Keep goin'!! :-D - Prosey BUTTONS!
You guys have been reading to much William Harrison Ainsworth... - Johnny from iPhone
....okay, so concluding,..he represents us all, our common humanity, our common desires, our common rights: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." We do NOT need to wear a suit to argue our just as valid point of view and fuck you on how you're trying to tell me to run MY life (not you Johnny, I mean the man). ~oh, the End :) - sofarsoShawn
Actually, I'm more of a contemporary literature girl m'self Johnny. But when it comes to reading, there is no such thing as too much. - Prosey BUTTONS!
