    the precursor to;
    1 Sophia Stewart's concept of the "slavery of illusion" world , novel; 'The Third Eye" plagiarized into the film Matrix,
    2 Dark City
    3 The Truman Show

    People trapped in an illusory world unable to see the real world outside, or prepare for it

    I continually see myself in this allegory. But actually, I do not believe that one truly enlightened will be put to death by 'the people.' I find that truth resonates.

    Well put it this way the entire thing is an allegory even that part

    How did Dr King die? didn't we abandon him just before his assassination
    Or Malcolm? He had only 250 people in the OAAU, after all of the work he did all over the planet and the hundreds of thousands that had heard his message, we left the man stranded!

    The post 9/11 attention slavery campaign, is similar to "The Cave"

    from children's toys were they interact amongst each other less and less, glued all four seasons in front of a screen, video gaming, doing homework, or texting friends, and at times their own siblings from room to room,

    to the conscious debasing stuff pumped on to HDTV, with endless reality - non reality shows, amateur hours, opinion and spin passing for journalism, Amos and Andy, and sexualy and violently pornographic cartoons

    to endless sequals and prequals, remakes comic books and cartoons in movie theaters

    and music that sounds the same per genre, on the radio.

    These modalities serve the purpose of blocking the Black community from focusing clearly at this new upgraded, and rebooted white supremacy, that seeks to pull the economic plug out from the safety nets, we pay taxes for and general Black wealth via, pensions and ownership of land and property, as values plummet from intentional rigging, while maintenace fees go through the roof.
