Five Billion Horsepower
That's is all that we are in the world we are currently living in. Every day that we wake up, THAT is our VALUE.
Do you ever truly relax when you go on vacation? Be honest. We are born and bred to work. Do you really think THE MATRIX was just a FANTASY? The Matrix
is real, and we have been inhabiting
(I was going to say "LIVING", but we really don't have any lives at all)
it for nearly 200 years!
Why do you think most of TWO and all of THREE were bull? The truth is a heavy subject. Sometimes you get scared. Sometimes you don't have the talent to complete what you've started. And sometimes you get seduced by the Matrix. You hook back into the machine.
All it takes is a little MONEY and TROUBLE.
The WACHOWSKI BROTHERS gained BOTH after the first movie.
RICH PEOPLE WILL GLADLY SUBMIT TO POWER.
Steak tastes GOOD...
Don't think you are in THE MATRIX?
Take a good look at your CAR. Folks,
Cars haven't changed since the moment
they were perfected. Nothing changes once money is made. FOUR WHEELS. 2 or
4 DOORS. LIGHTS. METAL BOX. VROOOOM.
And, idiots that we are, we can't
WAIT to get one. That one. I see the Car in the driveway now and it is just a tool in the rain. I remember going to bed excited over that thing. It
needs an oil change and so do I.
GMAC and FORD MOTOR CREDIT are the
biggest slaveDRIVERS in history. Don't ever fall behind in your Cars Payments
-those buttholes will put you DOWN!
And make you think you deserve it.
They put a lot of people in cars that
they can't afford, Just like BOFA/COUNTRYWIDE will put you in a HOME that you can't afford.
RESALE. RESALE. RESALE.
A Car is worthless, really. There are Billions of them. But a car sells many
times before it falls apart, just like
a home. You can't make your payments?
Well, Secured or Unsecured, PROPERTY
is the THING.
So why change a good thing? NOTHING HAS CHANGED ABOUT HUMANITY ITSELF IN OVER 500 YEARS! Maybe longer. Go ahead, look into it. The people of 1510 are EXACTLY like the people of
2010. Same GOALS, NEEDS, DESIRES.
Ours are just GILDED IN METAL and WIRES.
YOU DON'T CHANGE WHAT WORKS.
Where are the flying cars? JETPACKS?
The CURE FOR CANCER? The common COLD?
The END TO WAR? LOVE THAT LASTS FOREVER? WIRELESS ELECTRICITY. The PAPERLESS SOCIETY...
PETS that live longer so that your children's hearts can remain unbroken for just a little while more?
The FREEDOM to at LEAST relax on a damn vacation?
THE GILDED AGE.
We get up. We go to work. We have
children. We age. We die.
And in all that time we never pause to wonder why.
I'll tell you why. We are in a Matrix of our own design.
WE DREAM OF WIRES
