Answer to MWL 11/9/16: V (Hugo Weaving) – V for Vendetta
Evey: Can I ask about what you said on the telly?
Evey: Did you mean it?
V: Every word.
Evey: You really think that blowing up Parliament’s going to make this country a better place?
V: There’s no certainty, only opportunity.
Evey: Well I think that you can be certain that if anyone does show up, Creedy’ll black-bag every one of them.
V: People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.
Evey: And you’ll make that happen by blowing up a building?
V: The building is a symbol, as is the act of destroying it. Symbols are given power by people. Alone, a symbol is meaningless, but with enough people blowing up a building can change the world.
