Watch V for Vendetta

We finally watched V for Vendetta last night. I highly recommend it. If you ask me, it is a projection of the path we're headed on as a society/civilization. (The movie is set in the UK a couple decades in the future and in that future scenario, the USA is the former USA, a defunct, chaotic wasteland.) But the scenario in the UK in the movie is also what we seem to be heading toward, a fascist totalitarian dictatorship where dissent is squashed through murder and [true] freedom is a thing of the past, all in the name of national security. However, in our situation here and now for real reality, of course, there is no guarantee of a V character to save the day. Indeed, the likelihood of a V seems exceedingly remote. This movie is a wake up call for a sleeping populace.

Watch this movie and tell your friends and family to watch it if they haven't. I'm sorry to have waited this long.
