Had enough yet?

No one can be told what the matrix is. You have to see it for yourself. That phrase makes a hell of a lot more sense for the system of slavery they were actually hinting at, than in the context of the film. The capitalist system—really any money-based lie—is advertised as a system of honest competition and... I won't argue with that. Honest it is, from a certain point of view. You're allowed to know that the blood of this system is money and that whoever holds most has the most power. You're allowed to know that competition is not conductive to huge profit, and that the ability to undermine and destroy any and all competition again is enabled by having the most money. Essentially you get invited to a battle, where your opposition has an army of hired mercenaries with automatic weapons, and you have a pool toy.

This is what's known as the trickle-down economy, and like capitalism, its naming tells the whole story if you're inclined to see it. It's a system where everyone who labours forms the base from which all profit is extracted, which flows to the narrow top of the pyramid where no one does anything except maintain control of the system. The "all-seeing eye" sees what it believes. Not the other way around.But we're not taught to be able to see it in its entirety. We're deluged at every turn by the talking points on the superiority and power of the system. The education industry was designed and founded by the families who've been at the top of the pyramid since it was built, and the media companies are either owned by them outright or are certainly dependant on staying on the good side of those who can afford to advertise most, also them. We're each led to believe that we're special, that we are The One, and that, unlike everyone else, we have no evil inside us. To recognise something in the outside world, we have to recognise it in ourselves first. As a result, seeing the truth of the money system means accepting something about ourselves that no one wants to realise. This, I believe, is what is symbolised by the removed capstone of the masonic pyramid. When we look into the darkness of ourselves, the darkness looks back, and it's a gaze that not everyone can bear.

This system cannot be defeated from the inside. Every now and then we're led into a war against who we're told is enslaving us, but that is just another facet of the system since they also make and sell all the weapons. We were raised to have no imagination, to be unable to visualise something we haven't already seen somewhere else. Since the interests of money guard every exit, we are forced into a world view where there is nothing outside the system. The first step to exiting the system, then, is faith in something better, of which we can only detect faint outlines. The power of the system ends where you no longer play by its rules, but inside its dominion is complete. Whether you want to see it or not, its nature is to take more and more from you and give less and less in return.

The internet is now full of comments from people who feel like they've had enough, asking: What is the time, seer? When will the revolution begin? The revolution we're led to expect will lead to nothing but the rearrangement of the elements below the capstone as it always has, but the pyramid will stay intact and the nature of evil will not change. The revolution that leads finally to our freedom will happen individually, which means that you're reliant on the actions of no one but yourself to achieve this, and that no one can do it for you. Being free of the dominion of evil will mean doing the one thing that all our education has railed against. It will mean stepping boldly from the edge of the system and believing, trusting that there will be something on the other side to meet you. But for most of us, the strength will only come when we have finally had enough.
