    it was from the movie V for Vendetta but I think it was quoted directly from Guy Faux

    "God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion.

    The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is

    wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts

    they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions,

    it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. ...

    And what country can preserve its liberties, if it's rulers are not

    warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of

    resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as

    to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost

    in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from

    time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

    It is its natural manure."

    People Should Not Be Afraid of Their Governments.

    Governments Should be Afraid of Their People. -V

    This sticker borrows the words of the movie and comic book character named "V."

    In case you have not seen the movie, V is a masked caped-crusader who reminded me a bit of Batman. He leads a popular revolt against the British government in a futuristic story that has parallels to Orwell's "1984". But the story may have even more parallels to current events, depicting a ruthless government that has risen to power through fear-mongering and deception.
