There certainly is. I'm going to have to say "baby with the bath water" on this, though. Unless you somehow separate the social *constructions* (i.e. greed, apathy, etc.) from the essences of society, you're just going to annihilate everything. Whatever, I doubt this will mean anything to you, since it seems like you've wedded everything that's wrong in our society to that society itself. And unless you have a whole bunch of tactical nuclear weapons, you aren't going to be able to resolve your problems.

I was about to follow you into this _Matrix_ analogy, but then I realized: that was one of the most muddled, useless movies ever made (though it did have some incredible visuals).
