The character does actions that are chaos-promoting, but distinguishes anarchy as a goal from "chaos" as an intermediary state. Further, we get the indication that the character who first wore the V mask was actually full-on lawful at some point, but, disgruntled with what Law became, took on the mantle of destroyer (chaos) so that the old system be brought down and a new one built instead by whoever will follow. A quest to balance chaos and order(/law), if you will.
In such close association with this quote:

Is giving me a newfound respect for hipsters (as loosely defined by Healing Mage, since I have no clue what a hipster is outside of the music scene). Sounds to me like Hipsters are mini-V-for-Vendetta dudes but that limit themselves to attacking the subset of societal assumptions that don't directly improve public saftey. Assuming this will cause us to re-evaluate society's assumptions and eliminate some of the useless or harmful ones, I'm in! Goths, flamboyant gays, arguably even Amish and Vegans... this is a tried and tested way to protest against silly shared assumptions! This is not to imply that all of the people in the above demographics live their life the way the do as a form of protest... just that I'm guessing at least some do.

C/L E/N/G... whatever. I'm drafting Picard for my team right after Mr. Rodgers.
