Remember Remember...

Postby VforVIBE » Sat Nov 05, 2011 2:00 am

Remember remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot...


...A building is a symbol, as is the act of destroying it. Symbols are given power by people. A symbol, in and of itself is powerless, but with enough people behind it, blowing up a building can change the world.

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

November 5th is Guy Fawkes night/Bonfire night. It is celebrated in the UK and some Commonwealth countries.

In 1605 Guy Fawkes and several others attempted to blow up the English Parliament when King James I was addressing it. It was called the Gunpowder Plot and its foiling has been celebrated ever since.

Now Guy Fawkes masks are popular thanks to the V for Vendetta movie and comics and the thought that Guy Fawkes stood for a struggle against oppression.

It has also been said that Guy Fawkes was the only person to ever enter Parliament with honest intentions

Greetings from a fellow Iowan, Persephone. I haven't been following this Occupy stuff closely enough to know if this thread is a reference to those events, or if it's just a reference to this Guy Fawkes person. I just wanted to pop in because I haven't seen many Iowa residents on GenVibe.

Heeey!! XD Most Iowans aren't very into doing anything with their cars but driving them. I can't ask anyone about a good body shop or about mods or anything. . . It's depressing. That's why I'm here! And most of them are not. lol

Wow, thanks for the information! I certainly learned something new today! I guess that's also a reason why yesterday was "withdraw money from the big banks and put it into a local bank or credit union" day.

I certainly enjoyed V for Vendetta...even purchased the movie.

Did Guy Fawkes drive a Vibe to Parliament? Am I on the wrong forum?

Just read this post for the first time. And to think people assume automotive forums are strictly for car talk. You guys just educated me on something I never knew existed. Then again, any type of History I either FAILED or did extremely poor at back in my scholar days. :lol: Simply amazing :D Just another reason why I love GenVibe so much ;)
