Fifth of November

Remember, remember
The fifth of November
The gunpowder treason and plot.
I know of no reason
Why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.

This is a small poem about the plan, by a man called Guy Fawks, to blow up the British Parliament, with the King, the members of the House of Lords and the Members of Parliament.  It was believed that this act was to kill the king and place his catholic daughter as the head of state in England and begin a revolt against the government.

Be as it may, I have thought that this was an act, by the people, to remind the leaders that they serve at the pleasure of the people.  When a government loses the trust and confidence of the people it should be removed (non-violently though).  However, as history painfully has shown us it is not always that easy.  Just as we have seen in the former USSR and recently in the Middle-East.

Let the 5th of November be a reminder to all Politicians and citizens that;

People shouldn’t be afraid of their Governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.
