The Matrix is a system, and that system is our enemy.
When you are inside it, you look around and 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 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,
that they will fight to defend it.
