THE MATRIX IS A SYSTEM, NEO

The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. When you're inside, you look around. What do you see? Business people, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system, and that makes them our enemy. 

You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inert, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it. 
Were you listening to me, Neo? Or were you looking at the woman in the red dress?
