Came across an article this morning: “Did You Ever Eat Tasty Wheat?”: Baudrillard and The Matrix.
Be forewarned, it is long! I’m only half way through. But while i was wading my way through all the unfamiliar concepts such as Baudrillard’s simulacrum, Plato’s cave, Descartes’ epistemological certainty, blah blah blah; a thought suddenly popped to my head. Whatever Neo, Morpheus, and Trinity are trying to do, it is not very democratic, is it? If like Morpheus said many people who live in the Matrix don’t want to be unplugged, then what right do they have to “liberate” them?
