V for Vendetta, get ready for the Book Club
Our last Book Club of the year starts soon!
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.
Start: 24th October
