V for Vendetta Anonymous Comrade 11/11/2020 (Wed) 22:11:37 No. 18810
Was he /ourguy/? Did he do anything wrong? What should we make of the story (movie or comic book)?
>>18810 Alan Moore was a idealistic radlib who thinks random violence without any planning after the results will do anything other than continuing the endless struggle. Telling people to choose for themselves when they’ve known nothing about society other than the fascist regime they spent decades under is stupid. The comic is basically a fanfic of early 20th century anarchism, that due to writer biases, have it succeeds rather than pushing people into more organized methods to achieve anything.
>>18819 This sounds about right. The whole great man angle is excessively liberal, and it confused the shit outta me why V only has one protege instead of as many as possible. It's not a good demonstration of actual revolution or even anarchy specifically, so meh, but even understanding the radlib context it's really bizarre for the revolution to hinge on one (wo)man and a student. It makes some sense character-wise for V to be like that but why write the character that way? Especially since V is thematically supposed to represent the resistance that's inherently produced by tyranny. This lends itself to a group dynamic, but that's only referenced in the movie with everyone wearing the masks at the end.
>>18819 If you think this comic represents Moore's politics you're dumb.

>>18842 Correct, if you want a better representation of his politics you should read Brought to Light.
>>18839 The movie actually have a better and realistic depiction of a mass movement against fascism than the comic. Because even libs are still more successful in that than anarchists especially the pre-20th century ones that Moore tried to emulate. >>18842 True that. All you need to know about how much of a fake anarchist Moore was at the time is his pitch for DC’s Twilight of the Superheroes. Which can be found here: https://ia801906.us.archive.org/28/items/TwilightOfTheSuperheroes/TwilightOfTheSuperheroes.pdf He might be much better now, but back then he was Stan Lee level of scumbagery. Which hilariously enough the same thing that made Moore hate his biggest fanboy Grant Morrison. He did became a much better person after getting fucked over by corporate but that’s decades later.
