If you're into argumentative pieces about pop culture and politics you're in the right place.
Ignorance Is Bliss... My Take on 'The Matrix'
First of all, let me start off with a disclaimer. The Matrix is my favorite movie; please do not think that because I am writing this essay that I disapprove of the movie as a whole. The point of this essay is to the pose the question of whether or not they should have even wanted to wake up from the Matrix—let alone made it their life mission to destroy the Matrix. While the AI and Matrix was the enemy, I think there is also much truth in the phrase “ignorance is bliss,” and that’s exactly what the Matrix was. People got to live their lives thinking they were living in a perfectly fine world. They then were woken up to realize they were actually living in a post-apocalyptic world and they couldn’t even see sunlight.
What Is 'The Office' Truly About?
Many might say that The Office is about Michael, or that it’s about Jim and Pam, or maybe even about Kevin (as seen in "A.A.R.M."). In the episode "A.A.R.M.," Kevin will tell you that the documentary was about him and his search for love. Well, let me tell you the truth, and most importantly, the evidence. The Office was, in fact, about Dwight, his growth along those years, and of course, his heartstring-tugging on/off love story with Angela. I, obviously, can’t drop this epic thought bomb on you with no proof, so stay tuned to get some knowledge dropped on you.
