The Other Red Pill. And I do mean red.

We're all familiar with the iconic scene in the first Matrix film where Morpheus offers Neo the choice between the blue and red pills.  This has since become a cultural metaphor for any choice between the acceptance of blissful ignorance and hard reality.  Between continued acceptance of vs. initiation into rebellion against the "world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth ... that you are slave.  Like everyone else, you were born into bondage.  Born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch.  A prison for your mind," in Morpheus's compelling words.

This metaphor is most common in underground caverns of the internet, where it connotes a rejection of mainstream liberal narratives on racial and gender equality, and a subsequent initiation into some kind of race realist or manosphere concepts.  You are then "redpilled" on race or gender.

It's time to reboot the Matrix yet again.

The agents caught up to Morpheus this time, so it's up to me to present you with a choice.  This is your last chance.  After this, there is no turning back.  You take the blue pill, the story ends.  You wake up in your bed and believe that power and privilege are all about race and gender.  Or that racial and gender equality are lies hoisted on you by the politically correct establishment.  Or that people are unequal only because some people just work harder than others, are innately superior somehow or another, talented in unique ways or are just lucky.  Or whatever.

Or ... you take the red pill, and you stay in Wonderland, and I'll show you how deep the rabbit hole really goes.  Remember: all I'm offering is the truth.  Nothing more.

Red pill it is.
