Why do so many people idolize V for vendetta's anarchy? It is not democratic to blow up buildings [View all]

Last edited Sat Jan 19, 2013, 05:02 AM - Edit history (1)

it is a fictional character, having no relationship to the USA and promotes violence and anarchy
and the destruction costing billions of dollars.
One could say OBL would have idolized that character, or Tim McVeigh. or Zimmerman.
or the NRA.

It does not seem to be a democratic voters character to idolize.

Blow it up and burn it down? Why???

19 terrorists and OBL did that to the WTC and for 10 years there was a hole in the ground
and a bankrupt country because of it.

Weird IMHO.

(edit to add, edited title of thread, apologies to Sue Grafton for my wrong wording of title, Brain fart.
I know the difference)
(though vendetta/vengence/vigilante all describe the same V book).
