Wake Up Call/The Matrix

I also found this. I don't know anything about it yet, but it contains the entire blue pill/red pill scene from the Matrix, as it's introduction, which is amazing.

I've never talked about the Matrix at all, because I saw it when I was fourteen, enjoyed it, and then never thought about it again, but it is kind of the ultimate conspiracy, or at least it's a metaphor for all other conspiracies, the paranoia of knowing or believing that some secret thing is actually controlling reality. And the idea "taking the red pill" or seeking the truth is heroic is interesting to consider when talking about a dude like Alex Jones or any of the YouTube conspiracists.
