The author sees many parallels with the experience of 9/11 critical thinkers and the concept behind The Matrix series. Referring to the concept, he writes:
It shows us a world that most accept as being real. People have jobs, have friends, have lives, and they don’t ask questions. But Thomas Anderson/Neo has a different future ahead of him. We follow him as he takes the red pill, and we all find out “just how deep the rabbit hole goes.”As a person who has gotten involved with the 9/11 Truth movement, McKee writes:
I am very conscious of the transition process from a state of accepting the surface reality we’re presented with to one of wanting to understand – and expose – the hidden and insidious manipulations of our world for the benefit of a few. Although I’ve always felt unsatisfied with the reality presented to us (I began obsessing about the Kennedy assassination in my early teens), that feeling has been brought to a new level since I got involved in the 9/11 Truth movement. Frankly, some of my long-time friends think I’ve gone off the deep end, seeing conspiracies everywhere. I, on the other hand, am increasingly frustrated at their resistance and denial of what I am now just starting to see.He found that this phenomenon was articulated exceptionally well in a prologue by Peter Levenda to a new book entitled The Most Dangerous Book in the World: 9/11 as Mass Ritual by S.K. Bain from which he quotes extensively.
