1.“Desperados and casualties, corporations want batteries”
The greatest heroes of the past are always those that stand up against evil, the man, or some impossible force, saving the day for freedom and peace. Today, that idea is dying, rapidly replaced by the normal, a continuous cycle of work, sleep, and boredom. Much like The Matrix, Lauryn sees how we all operate as “batteries,” units of energy and work that simply “do” a job, recharge, and return the next day. There is no longer room for “desperados” in today’s world, a place where you must fit inside of the machine to take part. Sadly, this leaves the hotshots, hoping to make it all better, to pay the costs.
