The Real Matrix’s Hidden Truth
By Peter J. Denney
“An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because no one will see it.” -Mahatma Gandhi
“I would know the whole of the truth and make preparation for it.” –Patrick Henry
My neighbor, Frank, and I were chatting outside his house the other day. He’s become well aware of my passion for researching and writing on issues which are reported on television, and how I often offer “outside-the-box” perspectives on both past and current events. He has never taken me up on any of my challenges to check out my sources, and, most of the time, we simply agree to disagree.
We both agree, however, that the movie “The Matrix” is still one of the best “sy-fy” movies ever made. Frank has watched it several times. So, on this day, I decided to use this movie as a metaphor while we discussed our usual array of topics. Recently, he has come to suspect that something isn’t quite right, that maybe we are being mislead on some topics like the economy, for example. He’s begun to worry about his 401k…if it will be there for him and his family. “That’s the thorn in the back of your mind,” I replied, quoting the character Morpheus in the movie. I left him thinking that maybe he’s right to be suspicious…
