Submission + - petition to create 'The Matrix' (

OldFart58 writes: Remember the Death Star petition?

Well, now there's a petition to have the United States Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM) begin production of "The Matrix":

"By focusing our technical resources on production of a simulated reality or cyberspace (or "Matrix"), the government can ensure our country maintains its lead in cyber warfare by providing the ideal means to pacify and subdue the human population. In addition, in accordance with our green energy initiatives this will facilitate research into eventual use of human body heat and electrical activity as an energy source."

Is this the unavoidable outcome of today's perpetually escalating cyber warfare fixation, or just another way to keep the lights on once the oil runs out? Which pill will the White House choose?

God is real, unless declared integer.
