V for Vendetta: The revolutionary Speech (must watch!)
“Behind this mask there is more than just flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea… and ideas are bulletproof.”― From ‘V for Vendetta’
David Lloyd, V for Vendetta illustrator and co-creator, quoted:-
The Guy Fawkes mask has now become a common brand and a convenient placard to use in protest against tyranny – and I’m happy with people using it, it seems quite unique, an icon of popular culture being used this way. My feeling is the Anonymous group needed an all-purpose image to hide their identity and also symbolise that they stand for individualism – V for Vendetta is a story about one person against the system. We knew that V was going to be an escapee from a concentration camp where he had been subjected to medical experiments but then I had the idea that in his craziness he would decide to adopt the persona and mission of Guy Fawkes – our great historical revolutionary.
At the end, all I want to say is that, this is a mask. A mask that will cover your face and will remove all your fear! Often a mask takes out the hidden desires of a person; some are truly beautiful and constructive to observe but for some closing our eyes is not enough to forget how much detrimental they are!
Before you come to any conclusion, I must warn you. When you will look at him like an ideology, you may find nothing but violence, brutality and a treason. But if you look as a human being, then you may find here, what I want you to seek.!
And do tell me, had you remembered him?
