    Does this even have any relevance or meaning around here anymore? I think that spirit of true resistance and rebellion left this place long ago.

    But be sure to vote really, REALLY HARD tomorrow.

    Guy Fawkes actions were inspired by Trumps hateful speech.

    Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Parliament and restore complete power and control to the Pope, not to free people from an oppressive government... not someone I'd ever idolize.

    But the memories of MoneyBombs and of that campaign are wonderful.... sad times.

    People still had too much disposable income back then. The commies took care of it.

    I was referring to the spirit of resistance and rebellion in general, not the actual specifics re Fawkes.

    I agree completely. I just never understood why Guy Fawkes was chosen as that avatar to represent those things which he most certainly didn't hold true.

    I am a libertarian. I am advocating everyone enjoy maximum freedom on both personal and economic issues as long as they do not bring violence unto others.

    I brought V day to my school. Throughout the day I educated people on the 3 events that shaped the occasion. Number 1, Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot. Number 2, V for Vendetta. And Number 3, the Ron Paul moneybomb in '07 on November 5th that made history. I may have missed all three, but that is why we have history.
    I taped a picture of Parliament to the window in our senior hallway, and then read from the wikipedia article on Guy Fawkes while I wore the mask which I bought specifically for today. Then I strode down the long hallway towards the taped up Parliament as the 1812 Overture played, and as the music reached its peak, my classmates ran up with cartoon "bang!" explosions and taped them to the Parliament as I slapped one gigantic cut out explosion onto the middle of Parliament. It was truly a memorable event that caused everyone to remember, remember.

    Afterwards, people asked me if I did it for a school project. I asked them if they thought anything funded by the government would encourage people to stand up to the police state. Then they asked me when we could do it again. We are seniors this year, so sadly I will probably lose touch with many of them next summer, but I told them we would get together next year to do it all again. I am planning to dump my tea into Boston Harbor on December 16th in memory of the second Ron Paul moneybomb.

    Midterm elections! I plan on casting my first vote for Murray Sabrin for Senate and probably write someone in rather than choose between Leonard Lance and Tom Malinowski for the House. Maybe I will finally get to vote for Ron Paul?
    If you find this to be a worthwhile message, spread it throughout the land.

    The AmeriKunt people made it very clear they wanted no part of true liberty and represention by an honest and principled man.

    So, I'm just trying get by now, making it the best way I can, and carving out a tiny sliver of freedom wherever I can find it.

    I'm open to other suggestions that have not been tried yet.

    A reactionary Catholic monarchist being a major symbol of left-anarchists is a delicious irony. Sorta like libertarians loving that prog Thomas Payne for God knows what reason.
    NeoReactionary. American High Tory.

    The counter-revolution will not be televised.

    And why we should remember........


    The Deep State is winning.

    Get ready.

    We’re just a few short years away from the dystopian future depicted in the film V for Vendetta, which is no future at all.

    Written and produced by the Wachowskis, V for Vendetta (2005) provides a powerful visual commentary on how totalitarian governments such as our own exploit fear and use mass surveillance, censorship, terrorism, and militarized tactics to control, oppress and enslave.

    The year is 2027 and the country is ruled by a totalitarian corporate state where concentration camps (jails, private prisons and detention facilities) have been established to house political prisoners and others deemed to be enemies of the state. Executions of undesirables (extremists, troublemakers and the like) are common, while other enemies of the state are made to “disappear.” The television networks are controlled by the government with the purpose of perpetuating the regime. And most of the population is hooked into an entertainment mode and are clueless.

    Enter V, a vigilante in a Guy Fawkes mask, who rails against the people’s loss of freedom at the hands of a fascist government. Says V:

    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. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic, you turned to the now high chancellor… He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.

    Sounds painfully familiar, doesn’t it?

    We, too, have relinquished control over the most intimate aspects of our lives to government officials who, while they may occupy seats of authority, are neither wiser, smarter, more in tune with our needs, more knowledgeable about our problems, nor more aware of what is really in our best interests.

    Yet having bought into the false notion that the government knows best and can ensure not only our safety but our happiness and will take care of us from cradle to grave, we have allowed ourselves to be bridled and turned into slaves at the bidding of a government that cares little for our freedoms or our happiness.

    The lesson is this: once a free people allows the government to make inroads into their freedoms or uses those same freedoms as bargaining chips for security, it quickly becomes a slippery slope to outright tyranny.

    As V remarks, “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.”

    In other words, it makes no difference whether it’s a Democrat or a Republican at the helm, because the bureaucratic mindset on both sides of the aisle now embodies the same philosophy of authoritarian government, whose priority is to remain in power.

    When our own government no longer sees us as human beings with dignity and worth but as things to be manipulated, maneuvered, mined for data, manhandled by police, conned into believing it has our best interests at heart, mistreated, and then jails us if we dare step out of line, punishes us unjustly without remorse, and refuses to own up to its failings, we are no longer operating under a constitutional republic.

    Instead, what we are experiencing is a pathocracy: tyranny at the hands of a psychopathic government.

    So where does that leave us?

    In V for Vendetta, it takes a desperate act of terrorism (V blows up the seat of government on the fifth of November) for the people to finally mobilize and stand up to the government’s tyranny.

    This is what happens when a parasitical government muzzles the citizenry, fences them in, herds them, brands them, whips them into submission, forces them to ante up the sweat of their brows while giving them little in return, and then provides them with little to no outlet for voicing their discontent: people get desperate, citizens lose hope, and lawful, nonviolent resistance gives way to unlawful, violent resistance.

    As John F. Kennedy warned, “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”

    Do not wait to act until there is no alternative but violence.

    As director James McTeigue observed about the tyrannical regime in V for Vendetta, “It really showed what can happen when society is ruled by government, rather than the government being run as a voice of the people. I don’t think it’s such a big leap to say things like that can happen when leaders stop listening to the people.”

    What will it take for the government to start listening to the people again?

    We’ve got to make them hear us using every nonviolent means available to us: picket, protest, march, boycott, speak up, sound off and reclaim control over the narrative about what is really going on in this country.

    Mind you, the government doesn’t want to hear us. It doesn’t even want us to speak. In fact, it’s done a diabolically good job of establishing roadblocks to prevent us from exercising our First Amendment right to speech and assembly and protest.

    Still we must persist.

    As author Erich Fromm warned in his book On Civil Disobedience, “At this point in history, the capacity to doubt, to criticize and to disobey may be all that stands between a future for mankind and the end of civilization.”

    In other words, stop worshipping false idols. Stop waiting for Trump to drain the swamps, or some whistleblower to topple the tyrants, or some other political savior to swoop in and fix all that’s wrong with this country. Stop allowing yourselves to be drawn into divisive party politics. Stop thinking of yourselves as members of a particular political party, as opposed to citizens of the United States. Most of all, stop looking away from the injustices and cruelties and endless acts of tyranny that have become hallmarks of American police state.

    As war journalist Chris Hedges concluded, “Not having to make moral choice frees you from a great deal of anxiety. It frees you from responsibility. And it assures that you will always be wrapped in the embrace of the powerful as long as, of course, you will do or dance to the tune the powers play… when you do what is right, you often have to understand that you are not going to be lauded and praised for it. Making a moral decision always entails risks, certainly to one’s career and to one’s standing in the community.”

    Remember, remember the fifth of November.

    Why should we remember the fifth of November?

    Because it commemorates a day in history when a desperate vigilante tried to bring about a violent revolution.

    Trust me, no one wants a violent revolution.

    Americans speak reverently of how our founders mounted a revolution to secure our freedoms, but our platitudes gloss over the terrible toll it demanded of them: families torn apart, lives lost and years of misery and hardship.

    As I make clear in my book , the moral choice before us is clear: it is the choice between tyranny and freedom, dictatorship and autonomy, peaceful slavery and dangerous freedom, and manufactured pipedreams of what America used to be versus the gritty reality of what she is today.
