Wake Up!
by Martin Place

You're all wrong. So, so wrong! The Matrix has nothing to do with Computers. The Matrix has nothing to do with Philosophy. The Matrix has nothing to do with Religon. The Matrix has nothing to do with History.

You are in 'The Matrix' by believing that it has. Forever trying to convince yourself that you have found the answer to 'The Question'. There is no 'Question'.

The movie is about 'Money and Control'. It's as simple as that people. Nothing more, nothing less. The "Battery" is a metaphor for the "The Dollar". The "Human Farming" is a metaphor for "Suburbia". The "Prison for your mind" is a metaphor for "Propaganda". The "You are a slave" is a metaphor for "Industry". "Morpheus" is a metaphor for "Apathy". "The Sentinels" are a metaphor for "The Police". "The Agents" are a metaphor for "Spies". "Zion" is a metaphor for "Faith". And "The Matrix" is a simple metaphor for "The World Around You". In other words, "Money and Control".

And "Wake Up", is exactally that. Wake Up!

It just seems so blatantly obvious to me. Like the Neo Nazi joke in "Two and a Half Men". I.E. Charlie plays Baseball for "Pavlov's Dogs". The number on the back of his jersey is 88. 88 meaning "Heil Hitler" in the Neo Nazi community.

They were being sarcastic, and you all fell for the joke!
