You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.” –The Matrix

    • “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. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.” – Morpheus

      “I’m trying to free your mind, Neo. But I can only show you the door. You’re the one that has to walk through it.” – Morpheus

      “You have to let it all go, Neo. Fear, doubt, and disbelief. Free your mind.” – Morpheus

  1. As someone said on facebook.

    This only prove that the world we live in is full of lies and that the elite of the world is controlling us and using us as slaves.

  2. Number 4 is the only thing “regular” people don’t have control over. The rest actually don’t pertain to me at all (you probably meant to put “I think” in the beginning of the sentence). So either I’m not in the Matrix, or I’ve been given a really nice dream….

  3. This is true about the world. hardly anyone supports my movement. I do not care about this fucks I still believe earth first. I am anonymous just like you. Hiding in the shadows. Waiting for a time to shine. I’ll keep coding. If you need any help let me know. I am the change I want to see in the world. Also I would like to tell you this, “we are living in a quantum holographic simulator this is the reality for us is the first matrix there are many layers to the program.”

  4. I dont understand what the matrix is to begin with? Can someone explain? And be nice no one knows everything… nor understands everything.

  5. I’m going to have to agree. These are the posts I expect to see on my Facebook page from some random – Not here on AnonHQ. *Shrugs*. Good points sure, but this isn’t good content.

  6. GM food isn’t necessarily bad; however, if plants are modified to kill other, similar plants and patented so the creator of the GM plant gets a monopoly, it is evil.

  7. peopke need to wake up and stand up for their rights for their children for their families and every other living human being it is sad that people just go along with a system that enslaves everyone of us if we stand together their are more of us than them the elite assholes who are no different than us .
