“The Matrix is a system, Neo, and that system is our enemy. When you are inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters, the very minds we are trying to save. Until we do, these people are part of that system and that makes them our enemies. You have to understand that most of these people are not ready to be unplugged and many are so hopelessly dependent on the system, they’ll fight to protect it. “The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.”
The American military's increasing isolation from mainstream America is also a point of contention for Gen. Dunlap. The nation's two million active duty soldiers have, over time, become a self-contained society~one with its own solemn rituals, language and system of justice. As one reporter notes, "increasingly isolated from mainstream America, today's troops tend to view the civilian world with suspicion and sometimes hostility."
2 million Rambo's Shiz... come on, get serious about what you're posting.
That in itself is understandable, due to so many people drawn into the beliefs you describe.
People are Sheeple?
No one has taken away my right to vote or my freedom of speech just to mention a few constitutional rights. So, I'm not buying into your beliefs nor will I spread a word that is filled with conspiracies and/or untruths.
Shizamus, IMHO your time may be better spent debunking the stuff you post, as to waste others time doing it.
Of course, I'll fight for your right to post whatever you like.

It wasn't intended as a "shot". Just speaking the truth. Just look at the moral corruption in mainstream America and look at the perversions going on. Look at the liberalism and the blatant attempts to turn America into a socialist country. Look at the way people whine about their government, while offering nothing of themselves.
The men and women of the US military are the ones who fight and defend our freedoms. They serve their country far better than any slick politician with aspirations of power and money. The men and women of the US military are, by and large, wholesome individuals who believe in God and Country. They will put their lives on the line to defend the Constitution and even defend the slime that protest against the military. While the liberals are out there sucking down marijuana and complaining about "the man", our military stands ready to protect them.
I agree that there may be some individuals in the military who would love to see our nation enslaved by the military. Some folks deep within the Pentagon probably have dreams of world domination. Weird people are everywhere. Bad apples are everywhere. But as a whole, the military stands for honor and duty. These terms are almost extinct in mainstream America.
Come to think of it, maybe that quote is correct. Perhaps the military should be viewing mainstream America with suspicion and hostility. Even disgust.
Well, to add my two cents worth here, I can only aspire to the fact that the USMC is a very close and tight knit unit, no matter where you served. I have never met anyone who would subscribe to what has been put forth here and I myself have never had even the slightest of thoughts in that direction. What do I say to this?
