Our last Book Club of the year starts soon!

Alan MooreV_for_vendettax is back! This time we will be reading V For Vendetta, the iconic comic book illustrated by David Lloyd.

Here are some of the topics we will be discussing in our sessions:

  • Background: the birth of V – Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot in Thatcher’s Britain.
  • Identity: Strength through unity? The issue of individualism in government and resistance groups.
  • The secrecy of V’s identity and the birth of Anonymous: what purposes does this secrecy serve?
  • Why is it so easy for the fascists to seize control of government? What factors make people embrace fascist policies – at least at first? A brief look at fascist régimes around the world
  • The means versus the end: are V’s methods the best way to bring down the government? Do the ends justify the means or is V as toxic as those who he tries to overthrow?

Registration open. Everyone is welcome to join.
