“If you choose to take the red pill, welcome to the outside of the Matrix. Welcome to the real world.”
I saw the film many years ago and, I’m not going to fool you, I didn’t understand a thing.
So I watched it again, this time with my older children. The concept of the Matrix is already part of the popular wisdom, but the kids hadn’t seen the movie. By the way, they had no problem understanding it…
In general terms, the Matrix is the world of lies; an unreal world but one that you often don’t want to leave because it’s comfortable and easy… as lies always are. And how many times do we choose to stay there, knowingly; out of fear, out of cowardice, out of laziness?
If you choose to get out of that lie, everything is more uncomfortable. You have to fight and face danger, be brave and generous.
The Matrix of today is the world built by political correctness, by the dictatorship of the single thought, by those who have designed a new society and are accelerating the Great Reset. If you choose the red pill and decide to be dissident, be prepared. You are going to be singled out, attacked, censored, and denounced. Some of us will be targeted more than others, some of us will be bolder or braver, or simply sharper, or will hit where it hurts the most. Some of us will be Keanu Reeves and others just an ’extra’, but you have to prepare, train, work hard, and give it all you have. You have to try to learn the enemy’s moves in order to get ahead of him and triumph over him. We must go beyond our own limitations, beyond our own preconceived schemes in order to unmask the lie. And we must do that without fear.
And why take the red pill, that of the dissident, and not the blue pill, the one that keeps you locked into the comforts of the Matrix? If you choose it, you get to stay in the Matrix and avoid problems – does it matter if no one is being harmed? It matters because truth, goodness and freedom is what makes people happy.
And the handful of men and women who decide to take the red pill, who choose a more uncomfortable life, who choose truth and, therefore, freedom, for themselves and for others, will be the ones who, sooner rather than later, will pull the lever that will sink the single thought, with God’s help.
And that will happen. Have no doubts about it; the good guys always win.
