On rousing the masses

Sure, we all hope that a movie like V for Vendetta will finally rouse the masses to turn on their oppressive leaders. But will that happen? Nah, says James Leroy Wilson, who adds...
"The good news, however, is that even if they are never awakened, the 'masses' don't change things anyway. Determined minorities and individuals with vision do. And even if they lose, that doesn't mean their fight is in vain. I don't speak out against the State because of the probability of success, but because I couldn't live with myself if I didn't."
Well said.

Sounds rather vanguardist...

(...though not necessarily untrue.)
