I agree that it was an oversimplified statement that can be understood in several ways. That said, I thought that the movie did a good job of portraying a government which rules by fear. It instills fear into the people to keep control. V simply said that it should be the other way around. The people should be in control, and the government should do everything it can to appease them (out of fear of falling out of grace). It sounds like the basic democtratic principle. Now the reality of democracy in the country I live in may be different, but the ideal's there.
