The title atop of my rant is a quote from 'V for Vendetta' which I saw last week. I
found this to be a very enjoyable and evocative movie. The idea behind the movie is a
very realistic one. While others have claimed that it poured the Bush bashing on a
little too thickly, I found it to be a very realistic portrayal of the way in which Britain is

other way when something wrong happens because it's easier to do. Not because
we're scared or we have faith that our government is doing the right thing, but because
we are apathetic. Slowly but surely we lose more and more of our freedom to
watchdogs who claim it is for our 'safety from terrorism' and people are letting it
happen. This film gives us that message so very eloquently and sometimes we have to
brave and take a stand for change to take place.
