The truth of the matter is:

No matter how terrible the Matrix movies are, the films would be so much better if the fake computer generated world people are living in was actually a utopia instead of the 90's planet earth.

If living in the matrix was euphoric, that would really test the characters' desire to destroy it.

@LydiaConwell Apparently the machines tried that first, but people kept seeing through it because it was too good to be true.

@desdinova Oh, is that how they explained that?

Well I guess the matrix was too dim to work out it needed two virtual realities: one to trick the first people, then a utopia for the next generations who are born directly inside the matrix. Those people surely wouldn't know any better and would accept their utopia.
