It reminds me of the stupid-as-fuck Che T-shirt fad. You're trying to be edgy and counter-cultural by buying a t-shirt that has the portrait of a mass-murdering homophobic racist?

 

Also, does anyone who wears these masks actually read the wikipedia page devoted to Guy Fawkes? The guy wasn't a freedom fighter, he was a hard-line Catholic who was trying to overthrow the Protestant government in order to impose a even more strict theocracy. Jesus Christ, doesn't anybody think critically anymore?

Critical thinking is a white cis privilege only.

I believe that in the UK they celebrate the 5th of Nov sort of like Halloween. Instead of witches and sexy ghosts they go as Guy Fawkes. Also that could be the demand behind the image rather than anonymous.

I remember first learning of Guy Fawkes and thinking, whatever horrible or stupid shit I do in life, I hope it's no so bad that people want to burn me in effigy for 400 years after my death.

That's a pretty hilarious image, however not entirely true. Rather than dressing up as Mr. Fawkes some people (usually local children) make a 'Guy', out of various old clothes stuffed with newspaper/hay/sticks then we carry the Guy into the middle of a local field where everyone is gathered round a giant bonfire. The mob then ties the Guy onto the top of this pile of wood, lights it and everyone has a jolly good time drinking soup and watching the fireworks to celebrate the public mock-execution of our 1600's 'before-it-was-cool' attempted terrorist.

....which now I come to think about it, does sound a little barbaric.

Lol, in the UK they celebrate how Guy Fawkes FAILED. It's more a "he tried to blow up the parliament but we caught him first"

Internet mindset: "We hate corporations!"... "SpaceX and Tesla are great!"

"We hate monopolies!" "Give us Google fiber (and Google search engines, and Google maps, and Google cells phones, and Google driverless cars)!"

Internet mindset: "i've seen this said somewhere so everyone must think that way!"

have you ever considered the fact that the people saying "we hate corporations" are different people from the ones saying "tesla's great"? the irony is that there are a lot of discussions about critical thinking going on in here. not your forte, eh?

An adult male is painting a mask in a Brazil so it's automatically a "sweatshop"?

I swear that term now just means "people doing manual labor inside a building outside the United States".

Not that I give a damn about anonymous anyway. A lot of what comes out of them is the same far left wing nonsense that comes out of the liberal media. They are anti-government but pro-socialism?

Liberals want to oppress opposing views through victim politics and encourage people to be dependent on government. They are against principals of free speech.

You would think a group like anonomous would be more libertarian but instead they favor progressive SJW liberals.

But they get paid less than we do, so it's literally slavery. And don't try to confuse me with your talk about economics and cost of living. Obviously, if $1USD isn't a lot of money here, then it's not a lot of money anywhere else, either.

What if I told you the Mask was merely adopted by Anon, I want one, while I do like some of the things Anon does at times my opinion is still "Meh". I'd rather have it for the piece that it is, V's mask from V for Vendetta, a comic that ran from September 1988 – May 1989 and was made into a decent movie around 2007.

You missed out shipping and local distribution, sales costs. Still profitable

Movies like "The Wolf of Wall Street" are also great examples of this.

"Hey, you guys hate Wall Street business types, right? Well we made a whole MOVIE about how shitty they are! Come pay us money to watch it!"

Belford actually defrauded people, promising them what he could not give. Scorcese advertised he made a movie and people paying the admission actually got to see a well-crafted movie.
