I Am Neo...and I Am V

We're all stuck in the Matrix. We must raise our consciousness, or we will continue our life of slavery, distracted by meaningless media entertainment and propaganda.

We can break free with our pursuit of knowledge through reason.

To quote V quoting Faust: 

"By the power of truth, I, while living, have conquered the universe."

OIC, you were responding to my original post to you on this thread, right cowboy? <br />
<br />
As for ideas of mine that you don't like, I was just referring to the many things that we disagree on (which pretty much revolve around religion). I think indoctrinating children with religion is child abuse, I think it's a good idea for people to have sex before marriage, I support gay rights across the board, I think the best solution for some couples is divorce... that's just a few of my opinions that I think you don't like :)

Like which ones?

It would probably be hard for you to watch the Matrix, it's a trilogy so you'd have to commit about 6 hours to see the entire story. I imagine that to be almost impossible since I can't even get you to watch a 5 minute vid of anything, lol :)<br />
<br />
V for Vendetta is a stand alone movie that you might make it through. A super hero fighting against a corrupt totalitarian right wing government which is a thinly veiled critique of the Bush administration.... you'd like it.

shame the quote is by someone who has the power to do anything and f's the whole thing up, really. he had the power to break free, and he ended up as trapped as anyone else, if not more so. if im thinking of the correct Faust, that is.

V -- That's a great quote. I've sent that a few times to friends. It seems like the Matrix is full of cool quotes like that.

Quote by Agent Smith: <br />
<br />
"I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You're a plague and we are the cure."

I can't think of a movie that described the condition of the human race as well as The Matrix.

Beautiful "V"! Free your mind and the rest will follow! I love your quoted monologue by V. "Don't worry. Go Shopping."<br />
Look what we got for our silent, obedient consent! Gawd!

lol<br />
<br />
Free your mind. There is a difference between knowing the path, and walking the path. <br />
<br />
I also like this monologue by V, I think it very accurately portrayed what happened after 911:<br />
<br />
"...words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to ob<x>ject, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to [President Bush] He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.<br />

:)

The truth will set you free

I'm pretty sure you don't like 'some' of my ideas, lol ;)

Very nice! I didn't realize that was from the Matrix, but I like all your ideas.
