Remember, Remember... what Guy Fawkes actually stood for. Fawkes was a fighter for Spain and the Catholic Church. His goal was to end the slightly more egalitarian Protestant revolution in England by restoring Catholic domination. If the Gunpowder Plot (Fawkes didn't actually come up with the plot, Robert Catesby did) had actually succeeded, Britain would probably look less like an anarchist commune and more like the fascist police state Alan Moore warned us about. Don't get me wrong I loved "V for Vendetta" but it's a distorted illusion of what Fawkes actually wanted to accomplish. Guy Fawkes wasn't trying to destroy an evil theocracy, he was trying to install one. Just sayin'. Thoughts?
Today in History: November 5, 1605, REMEMBER, REMEMBER THE FIFTH OF NOVEMBER, THE GUNPOWDER TREASON AND PLOT, I KNOW OF NO REASON WHY THE GUNPOWDER TREASON SHOULD EVER BE FORGOT! Early in the morning, King James I of England learns that a plot to explode the Parliament building has been foiled, hours before he was scheduled to sit with the rest of the British government in a general parliamentary session. At about midnight on the night of November 4-5, Sir Thomas Knyvet, a justice of the peace, found Guy Fawkes lurking in a cellar under the Parliament building and ordered the premises searched. Some 20 barrels of gunpowder were found, and Fawkes was taken into custody. During a torture session on the rack, Fawkes revealed that he was a participant in an English Catholic conspiracy to annihilate England's Protestant government and replace it with Catholic leadership. What became known as the Gunpowder Plot was organized by Robert Catesby, an English Catholic whose father had been persecuted by Queen Elizab ...
