I was angry at first, and bitter for a while, but more because I wish I knew then what I know now. We're fond of Matrix analogies around here, but a lot of guys forget one of the movie's points: the so-called blue pill folks, for the most part, aren't evil men actively seeking to ruin your life. They're acting according to the beliefs that have been poured into their heads since birth. Some people do quite well in this world while remaining thoroughly blue pill, i.e. our entire industrial-media complex. As Morpheus said, he doesn't promise us happiness or success - only the truth.
Sometimes when I'm having a bad day, I call it a Psalm 137 kind of day:
Verses 8 and 9 are usually omitted at Mass and from the post-1960s Divine Office, heh.
