the fifth of november

"Remember, remember!
The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
(...)"

(Şiirin tamamı için, bknz: www.potw.org/archive/potw405.html)

"5 Kasım 1605; Guy Fawkes'un İngiliz Parlamento Sarayını havaya uçurma girişiminin tarihidir." Buna Barut Komplosu, Gunpowder Plot deniyor. "Barut komplosunun Karşı-Reform hareketi olduğunu ve baskıcı yönetime karşı anarşi hareketlerinin öncüsü olduğunu kabul eden gruplar vardır."

Bu meseleyi bize hatırlatan, tabii ki:



"Sözler yerine kaba kuvvet, kullanılabilse de kelimeler kudretini hep koruyacaktır. Kelimeler anlama ulaşmanın yollarını ve dinleyenlere hâkikatin telaffuzunu gösterir."

Yaa, ben de geçen gece izledim V for Vendetta'yı. İzlediğim en iyi film diyesim var da, o kadar iddialı konuşmayayım, ilk 3'e kesin girer.

"E: Can I ask about what you said on the tele?
V: Yes.
E: Did you mean it?
V: Every word.
E: You really think that blowing up the parliament is going to make this country a better place.
V: There is no certainty only opportunity.
E: I think that you can be pretty certain that if anyone does show up Creedy will 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're going to 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.
Evey: I wish I could believe that was possible."
