Last year a movie came out that made me realize how different I have become over the past two years Its name is The Matrix The movie questions the world and the forces in peoples lives For weeks it made me wonder whether or not this world is real Or may it be that our brain is not really controlled by us but by some other forces and we perceive as real The thought is interesting but not believable However if the movie is looked upon from a different angle it appears to be a metaphor for the political and economic control that people experience today The movie presented an imaginary world in which the artificial intelligence controlled human beings People got so sucked in to the computer world that they didnt even notice how their mundane surroundings turned into a giant machine They became prisoners of that machine They thought that they live at the end of the twentieth century when in reality it was the twenty-second They had their families and jobs and worries Everything seemed real or they just never questioned it But the reality was very different They were kept in huge jars and were hooked to a mainframe computer which told people what to think see hear and do Of course there was a group of people who escaped that destiny and fought the evil The idea of the movie is revolutionary I think that the movie is a metaphor for the economic and political control exerted on people by the government We are surrounded propaganda and lies just like in the movie We live in this dream world where everyone is equal and we work to be rich Such lies go back to the 1800s The American myth and the stories about rags to riches were meant for common people to keep them working and hoping simply for economic benefit As for the political side we are fed only
