There are many reasons of why fear, was such a major component of British society in “V” for vendetta, but particularly people feared for their lives, safety, and they thought it would be better for themselves to be quiet and go along blending in with the rest of society, living in constant fear of whats to come next. The people feared their government enormously.
Revenge was a big part of the storyline in the film, “V” wanted to gain revenge for himself and also society, who were being brainwashed by the British government. “V” seeked revenge for personal reasons from what he had endured, at Lark Hill Detention Centre. “V” also seeked revenge for the people of Britain and the corruption, brainwashing and government control society had endured. “V” had thought that revenge, would set all people free, and help everyone no longer fear their government.
