Thought for the Day

So it’s time for a demonstration and you can be sure someone will trot out their little V for Vendetta Mask for all the world to see what  bold street-marching revolutionary they are

V for Vendetta

I wonder if it ever occurs to anyone in love with this image, they are celebrating a fanatical religious fundamentalist who wanted to blow up a representative (sort of) Parliament  which was a check on King and Church and replace it with an authoritarian theocracy?

I doubt it.

That’s the thing about reading too much history, it does incline to strip away a lot of the romance we all do like hide in.

Or am I being a ‘boomer’ (whatever the heck that is supposed to truly mean… not a lot I suspect)?
