"V for Vendetta" the screenplay by Larry and Andy Wachowski
(Based on the graphic novel by Alan Moore)
Since mankind's dawn a handful of
oppressors have accepted the
responsibility over our lives,
responsibility that we should have
accepted ourselves. By doing so,
they took our power. By doing
nothing, we gave it away.
The voice booms over the mesmerized crowd.
Tonight, our world will change.
Our leaders will be gone and we
must choose what comes next. A
return to the chains of others or
lives of our own. A world of the
past or one of the future.
Latest Blows Up Fascism in Grand Fashion"
