In the speech “BTN (Nov. 5)”, V argues that something is very wrong in this country. V explains his argument by pointing out the problem, questioning who’s at fault, and calling the people to action. Using examples from the past and the present, he explains and reminds people in order to get people to think for themselves, “If you’re looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror(3).” V’s oppressed audience is the people of England because he opens and closes the speech by addressing the people of England and advises people to act because there is something very wrong with this country, V’s tone changes throughout the speech from calm at the beginning to serious, accusing, and then finally inspiring.
