unaware that Moore’s ideas havealready been passed to some other people such as Evey. Evey continues V’sstruggle, and arguably, there are other members of the bottom class who are insolidarity with the agenda. Therefore, the novel indicates that in as much astotalitarian leadership tortures and kills some individuals, they do notachieve much success in changing the ideas. Revolutions are triggered by fewindividuals, and later on, many people are attracted to the course. During suchtimes, monarchies are left with little to do to curb the situation. However, Foucault advises that political systems shouldbe democratic. His text describes democracy as discourse.
Discourse means thatindividuals be involved in coming up with ideas of how they want to begoverned. Foucault is more concerned with the welfare of the subjects and evenattempts to examine how people end up being put into social classes (Taylor, 16).However, Foucault does not confine himself to political power alone. He allegesthat people tend to put up struggles against those that have the power that isclose to them (Hall, 75).
He gives an example of the medical profession whereindividuals may want to address their grievances to doctors because they havecontrol of their bodies, or psychiatrists because they have control of theirminds. To conclude, Foucault brings an interesting theory aboutpower. He alludes that struggles have always emerged against aspects that areclose to the people. That means people usually rise against issues that affectthem from day to day. The efforts are usually sparked by the realization thattheir rights are being infringed. In an attempt to curb the opposition, thevarious sources of power try to limit the commoners’ access to knowledge (Ball,22).
Nonetheless, their plans are always futile, a few individuals withknowledge rise and get followers who subscribe to their proponents’ ideologiesand demand their issues be addressed. Summarily, when people are exposed toknowledge, they get the power.
