This is from Australia, a 3-part YouTube movie on “Labour Spin” called “Digital Future Under Labor Government,” a “dystopian society” of mass poverty under an oppressive governmental structure. The film features Neo from The Matrix.
While the labels used are a
bit foreign to us here in the US, it’s point is timeless. The choice is
there for every generation: Individual freedom with all its risk — or
be absorbed into The Matrix, the gray, the faceless — but predictably
safe — Matrix.
Which will Neo choose? What
The Matrix calls “Compassion” and “stability,” a life that is ordered
and decided for him? Or will Neo embrace real life with all its
challenges and risk, government-free?
So far, Neo’s been sleeping! Will he become aware and “vote consciously” in time to save the world?
We’ve got our money on Neo! Go, Neo, go!
