Will people leave the Matrix?

In reading a post regarding Neo's last lines;

""I'm  going  to  show  them a world without you, a world without rules and
controls,  without  borders  or  boundaries,  a  world  where  anything  is
possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.";

It  got  me  wondering. Even if Neo showed the people trapped in the Matrix
what  the  real  world  is about, and how to break the rules of the Matrix;
would they want to leave?

If they leave, then they have to deal with the desolate world, encased in a
'Nuclear  Winter'  and  scramble to slowly rebuild society. And even before
that, they would have to win a war against the AIs.

While  in the Matrix, these same people would be learning to break down the
barriers and break all the rules of logic and physics.

Within  the Matrix, you could become a 'Superman' You could do anything you
want; be anything you want. Change it to what you want it to be.

As  humans  (who  usually  pick  the path of least resistance); wouldn't it
backfire  on  Neo  if  he  liberated  people  by showing them how to become
superpeople  with  in  the  Matrix,  then  tell  them its time to leave and
rebuild the real world, as mere mortals.

Who would want to leave the Matrix?

Just a thought
