Neo: The Matrix?
Morpheus: Do you want to know what IT is? The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us, even now in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
Some Powerful People Have Challenged the Matrix – And Failed
Similarly, when Congressman Peter DeFazio and the entire Homeland Security Committee of Congress were denied access by the White House to Continuity of Government Plans (the Committee had all necessary security clearances), DeFazio made a public speech to Congress, and stated “Maybe the people who think there’s a conspiracy out there are right”. In his own way, DeFazio was challenging the matrix.
Similarly, former high-level intelligence officials, military officers and others have pointed out that the government’s story about 9/11 is hogwash. This was their way of challenging the matrix.
Each of these people were, in their own way, trying to wake people up to the fact that the U.S. is no longer a constitutional government. They have helped wake up some people. But they didn’t succeed in waking up enough people to make things change.
Because its a numbers game. And a handful of even the bravest, most dedicated and powerful people are not enough to reach the masses.
Its Up to Us
Its a numbers game.
If you’ve ever studied compound interest or calculus, you know that a lot of little things can together add up to really big things. Similarly, the actions of millions of ordinary people will have more effect than those of a few powerful people.
Its not Morpheus and Neo and a few others versus the machines. There are already millions of people who are awake. Those millions have to – ourselves – wake up the slumbering masses.
Rather than a supreme court justice or congress person doing it for us, its more like there’s one awake person in each grouping of sleeping matrix inhabitants. Each and every person who has woken up to reality has to wake those up around him or her. As the saying goes, we are the heroes we’ve been waiting for.
It may seem like this “waking up” business is not nearly as important as taking action. True, action is crucial, and we need to work harder to stop fascism. However, it is also important to realize that people who are asleep will oppose us, as they don’t understand that we are working for their benefit, and will incorrectly think that we are working against them. Until we wake them up to what is really going on, they will look at us — the people who are awake — as enemies or at best cranks and trouble-makers. In other words, it is not just a battle in the world of action, or even an infowars between truth and disinformation, but also a battle between awareness and hypnotized fantasy . . . a battle between consciousness and unconsciousness.
So How Do We Do It
There are many ways to help wake up other people, and you should give your suggestions.
One approach is to use parody to wake people up.
America is being taken over by fascists.
