revolution or death


Shurui Zhang, Writer/ editor

“We are told to remember the idea and not the man. Becausimages-2e a man can fail, He can be caught, he can be killed and forgotten. I have witnessed firsthand the power of ideas. I’ve seen people kill in the name of them…and die defending them.”


V for Vendetta is a movie with its special idea. A movie talks about hope, fairness, justice and freedom…  “People should not be afraid of their governments,  governments should be afraid of their people” is the message it wanted to tell us.


There are curcumstances that we face, when we feel like losing dignity, when imageswe are overwhelmed, and even threatened and injured. Most of the people choose to be silent, but V, the leading character, choose to revolt. He is an romantic anarchist. I admire his courage and strength to fight against incorrect things, but i am not for his extreme ideas such as anarchism.


V for Vendetta is a worth-watching movie. It has the magic power to lead us cogitate on how shell we live our life. As in the movie saids, “Our integrity sells for so little in life, but it is all we really have. It is the very last inch of us. But within that inch……we are free.”
