Who is Guy Fawkes and did he have a vendetta

Occupying a mirror on Halloween.

Guy Fawkes is a historical figure in England that has come to symbolize treason and rebellion against what some considered unfair government by King James I. A scarecrow painted with the familiar face is burnt on a bonfire on November fifth, the evening that the original Guy Fawkes was caught with barrels of gunpowder in the basement of England’s Parliament building.

V for Vendetta is a movie based on a graphic novel/comic book series about “V” a vigilante fighting an authoritarian regime. The setting is a fictional Britain with a militarized government. The hero is a caped crusader with a Guy Fawkes mask who tries to liberate his land from the fascist rule.
Guy Fawkes multiplied.


*** To have a vendetta is to have a really big gripe against something or someone – a reason for needing revenge or vengeance. Guy Fawkes may have had a personal vendetta or he may have been set up to take the blame for a larger group with a gripe against the policies of King James I.

Unity needn’t divide.

 “And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn’t there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission.”  – an Anonymous quote

After being captured with kegs of wet gun powder Guy Fawkes was tortured to reveal names of his conspirators. He eventually jumped to his death rather than be put to death by his captors. The November fifth bonfire tradition was started by King James I to celebrate the failure of the plan.
United we stand.
Divided we fall.   Blame is not a medicine that heals.
