Guy Fawkes night is celebrated because Parliment was saved from being blown up. It also reminds us that people have the real power, not the government, for a group of ordinary people came inches from blowing up the government.

9/11 isn't celebrated because 3000 people died in terrorist attacks by foreigners, who did it because their millennia old text finds fault with people who live half a world away and have never personally met or been slighted by.

While anarchists may be right that Fawkes was the only person ever to enter Parliament with honest intentions, they've forgotten what those intentions were. Fawkes wasn't trying to destroy an evil theocracy, he was trying to install one.
Fawkes was a fighter for Spain and the Catholic Church. His goal was to end the slightly more egalitarian Protestant revolution in England by restoring Catholic domination. If the Gunpowder Plot had actually succeeded, Britain would probably look less like an anarchist commune and more like the fascist police state Alan Moore warned us about.

Beurocracy *****. The education system is ****** because it only exists to get you ready for your next step, and the only real education you get which prepares you for the workplace are the last two years+ of college. Everything else is to give you a broad understanding form the next broad thing, which, done on a large scale, is ******.

We celebrate Guy Fawkes' day (originally) because of his failed attempt at blowing up the parliament. So no, no, **** NO. It's NOT like celebrating Osama Bin Laden day because that asshole actually managed to succesfully conduct a terrorist attack.

Guy Fawkes failed -> We celebrate that he failed.

Only reason people misinterpret 5th of November is because of V for Vendetta. V is fighting a corrupt and fascist government so in that situation V is actually a hero and the government is the bad guy.

Also I think Guy Fawkes is just a symbol for anonymous and people regard the 5th of November more as 'Anonymous Day'.

I think I need to make this clear, it was for religious reasons. As you said it wasn't for the same reason as V for Vendetta but I think people will understand that it was purely because he didn't agree with the protestant king.

Except Guy Fawkes wanted to kill a bunch of corrupt government assholes aand Osama flew a couple planes into two buildings filled with innocent civilians going about their lives.

there's a big difference

Good evening, London. Allow me first to apologize for this interruption. I do, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of every day routine- the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition. I enjoy them as much as any bloke. But in the spirit of commemoration, thereby those important events of the past usually associated with someone's death or the end of some awful bloody struggle, a celebration of a nice holiday, I thought we could mark this November the 5th, a day that is sadly no longer remembered, by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat. There are of course those who do not want us to speak. I suspect even now, orders are being shouted into telephones, and men with guns will soon be on their way. Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

The difference is that Osama killed innocents.
Politicians usually deserve it.

I see I have to put some **** straight.

1: Guy Fawkes didn't try to "install a theocracy". It already ******* were a (christian) theocracy just like all of Europe. Any self-confessed atheist at that time would have been tried with torture for witchery and burned at the stake, hanged if he were lucky.

2: The quarrel was between the catholic and protestant church and it's pretty much the same **** that went down in Ireland not too long ago. What's more, at the time there was WAR between the two factions and Fawkes saw it as a holy duty to reinstall Catholicism. No different from crusades or jihad (which were/is also far into the land of full retard)

3: Just like in Ireland things were hidden beneath the religion. In this case it was Scotland vs England.

4: The effigy used to be the pope, not Fawkes. Food for thought, eh?

5: I don't care about that stuff but Fawkes really were a patriot, freedom fighter and revolutionary (which is of course just another word for terrorist these days)

6: V for vendetta is a ******* awesome movie. In case nobody noticed it is not about the real Guy Fawkes.

7: Start an Osama Bin Laden jenga day if you like, noone cares.

Pointless explaining it to someone who doesn't even know who Guy Fawkes is, he probably scrolled with his eye on the wikipedia and thinks he knows ****.

a freedom fighter that wins is a national hero for all time, one that looses is a terrorist.

whoever wins will make you believe that their opponent was the villain.

But the masked mad man a hundred years later made a point to look at him as a hero.

The whole point is made by the observer, the two sides can make all the fuss that they want. Ultimately it is up to the people who think on the events, and the actions done before hand, to decide whom to follow and whom to which history should ignore.

Also who the **** in their right minds comes to FunnyJunk to spread political ideal?! I'm mean come on! You should have been here long enough to figure that only Anonymous does that. Which is why this site is celebrates this day.
