Movie Speech: The Matrix

For those who have not yet seen The Matrix trilogy, it concerns the reality of our world but not as we know it, that being only an implanted illusion. The reality is that the world is a ravaged wasteland where most of humanity have been captured by a race of machines which live off of their body heat and imprison their minds within the artificial reality, known as the Matrix. The agents of the Matrix are led by Agent Smith, played superbly by our own Hugo Weaving. Here he speaks to Neo, a hacker who is awakened to the real world and who becomes involved in a rebellion…
"I’d like to share with you a revelation I’ve had, during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you aren’t actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with its surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply, and multiply until every natural resource is consumed. The only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You are a plague, and we... are the cure."
