Morpheus: The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy.
…Hierarchical systems like the one set in place by the Controllers rely on the twin concepts of inequality and valuation. The Controllers set themselves up as either the gods themselves, or as the interpreters of “God’s will.” In the national version of this same game, those in authority are the elected officials, judges, cops, tax experts, lawyers, etc. that translate and dictate the law. In days past, these officials were Kings and Queens were given their power by the religions that sustained the system. They were “anointed by God” and said that this gave them the power of life and death over great herds of people. This system continues even in so-called democracies, using the Controller’s system of hierarchy to control the masses.
In this system an individual never gets a chance to grow up; he never realizes his power, his true nature, and his connection with everything that surrounds him. You are a victim of the matrix of belief that puts the ultimate power outside you, but you are the where the true power resides.
