Image via Wikipedia"The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it. "
- Morpheus (from 'The Matrix')
That's My Favorite Movie Quote, not only is it so true, it's evident all around us in this 'Real-Life Matrix' we be living in. I look all around me and see people completely attached to their roles, their titles, their status, their wealth class, their bank accounts, their credit scores, their jobs, their houses, cars, clothes, this false sense of identity we impose on ourselves.
People so dependent on things that will only vanish after they pass on. The only thing that remains after the point where our body expires is the everlasting destiny of Our Soul, and where it ends up depends on the tally of our Actions during our Lifetime (Good vs. Bad, Blessings Vs. Sins). Most people don't think that deep or that far ahead. WHY?! Because THE SYSTEM has brainwashed them NOT TO. The System tells them it's not important, it's irrelevant, it's insignificant, it's meaningless, and what matters is the HERE & NOW, not the Hereafter... LIES, LIES AND MORE LIES.
The System has us in locks & chains, feeding us materialism, superficiality, ignorance, and other mind-numbing bull-fuckin-shits. It's a Sad Reality for Someone who Sees all this Happening but, as Morpheus says, Not Everybody is Ready to be Unplugged..... ARE YOU?! We Can Break FREE from their Chains, but only if we get past the FEAR MONGERING they try so hard to scare us off with, and get past our pity differences amongst ourselves, looking beyond the divisions of religion and nationality, and consider the considerable amount of things we have in common, such as: WE'RE ALL HUMAN BEINGS!!!
Just remember: Without the People, The System that LOVES to Feed off of us Will Crumble & Fall.
POWER TO THE PEOPLE!!!!!
