Remember, remember the 5th of November

Remember remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot…”

Though those who’ve seen V for Vendetta may or may not know the reason behind the Gunpowder Plot, I still love the movie. By the  way, the plot was two religions fighting for power. A few Catholics wanted to kill the Protestant king so they can put a Catholic in his place. Not that admirable…

Though the message in V is slightly different, fighting for democracy in a tyrannical, dystopian country. For a graphic novel written in the ’80s you can see how its prophetical in a way. Watch this clip, with subtitles, and see if you notice similarities between what’s being described and what happening.
