The Dangers of the Red Pill

redpill_danger

I came across an interesting thread on Roosh’s forum recently that linked very well with some experiences I’ve been having over the course of the last few weeks. Eldelwiess was the OP here and he just hints upon a greater whole of the danger of the Red Pill:

It’s a very tough choice to make, yet inevitable. You HAVE to.

But it’s a difficult pill to swallow.

The side effects are really nasty.

Ever since I did it, my life changed to the better, but alas, to the bitter too.

The thing is I now SEE. I’m not blind anymore. But I don’t LIKE what I see.

Because what I see is hypocrisy, degeneration, mediocrity, ignorance and mental slavery.

When you see the world in red pill eyes, you see the ugly reality.
It makes you stop enjoying many things in life.
It makes you find the majority of the people boring, uninteresting and frankly stupid. You pity them.
It makes the bulk of the women unworthy of your time.
It makes you can’t stand your colleagues.
It makes many jokes not funny anymore.
It makes you question everything.
It makes everyone untrustworthy, even your physicians.

It makes you…a better person ! And I love it.

But I understand why the majority of the people ignore the red pill and decide to remain in blue pill slavery and mediocrity. It’s easier. And you get to still enjoy life as you knew it, keep the friends who do the exact same thing, sympathize with your colleagues who complain about long working hours, date the same women who feel entitled to everything, watch the same TV programs which numb your mind and make you lose IQ points, vote for the same politicians who control the strings that make you move…

It’s easier.

Eldelwiess is just coming around to acknowledging The Bitter Taste of the Red Pillbut the inherent danger he’s hinting at here goes a little further beyond the perception of a Red Pill aware man being “bitter”, and into the social dynamics that center on creating and interpreting him being such. The danger in this context is not just a bitter perception, but rather one of personal, professional and familial ostracization for expressing Red Pill truths.

I touched on these liabilities in The Secret of the Red Pill, but this was more from the perspective of women having their Game explained to them and what Red Pill aware men might expect for having confronted them with it. The impact of that may only be the perception of you being a presumptuous asshole by an individual woman, however, there are broader implications and consequences for “living” the Red Pill in a larger social sense.

Wutang from Roosh’s forum:

I actually had a falling out with a group of casual acquaintances when my association with RP was revealed among the group so there is a “danger” with it affecting your social bonds. I put danger in quotes because you really should see it as more of an act of filtering out who you associate with rather then any sort of great harm; the exception being if these are people who you work with or who can put a wrench in you advancing in your goals. If the only real harm is losing a few acquaintances or even friends then you should ask yourself if these are really the sort of people you want to associate with. Do you want to surround yourself with people that are apparently so mentally weak that mere words and difference of opinion can drive them into bouts of wailing and sobbing?

While we promote self-sufficiency and being beholden to no other man or system in our particular subculture we need to keep remembering that no man is an island. The people you associate with are going to determine where you are heading. Surround yourself with people who possess beliefs that lead to perpetual victimhood and you’ll become a victim yourself. Associate with people that can’t stand up for anything except a spineless tolerance that refuses to make any sort of value judgements and make the tough choice of saying ‘A is simply better then B when it comes to accomplishing C” whether A is an idea, an action, or even a type of person and you will soon lose your own spine; being afraid to fight for anything for the fear that it’ll make someone somewhere unhappy.

That said this was still a lesson in knowing when is the right time to drop RP knowledge. Naturally I’m a very open and sharing person when it comes to my beliefs and opinions but after this incident I’ve learned to be a lot more careful. In this case I didn’t really lose much since I was already growing to dislike quite a few of the people in the group but it definitely was a warning – what if this has happened with people who I actually respected and who were in positions and had connections that could either help or hinder me in my personal goals? Be careful out there guys.

I quoted this today because I find myself having to temper and measure my Red Pill evangelism with people I know personally or interact with professionally. I say evangelism because, in spite of any measured explanation, this is what it comes off as to most uninitiated Blue Pill plugins. There’s a degree of diplomatic tact you have to practice the more Red Pill aware a man becomes.

Sometimes that’s tough, especially when you’ve gone through personal changes and development that’s benefitted your life as a result. Red Pill awareness may have even saved a man’s life, so just shutting up about it, or having a hesitancy to help out a fellow man in need of that awareness becomes a real conflict.

In June I’ll have been back in Nevada for two years and in that time I’ve reacquainted myself with old friends I haven’t seen since I left for Florida almost ten years ago. All of them I find in similar (if not identical) states in which I left them. Some of these men are long time close personal friends I’d kept in touch with over the years, but with the exception of maybe one out of a dozen, all are still foundering in the same Beta mindset, lifestyle and behaviors they had ten years ago. All of them still complain of the same Beta-relationship issues they had with their wives (some now ex-wives) they confided in me then.

The Rule

NEO: I can’t go back, can I?

MORPHEUS: No. But if you could, would you really want to?  I feel that I owe you an apology. There is a rule that we do not free a mind once it reaches a certain age. It is dangerous. They have trouble letting go. Their mind turns against them. I’ve seen it happen. I’m sorry. I broke the rule because I had to.

You’ll have to forgive my using the Matrix metaphor, but every time I’m tempted to awaken a man I think may desperately need the truth of Red Pill awareness I’m reminded of this exchange. I understand why this would be a rule. Granted, I’ve broken it myself many times; usually when I think a man is a danger to himself, but I do so with the knowing that I’ll need to invest myself personally in his conditions and that’s where that cautious hesitation comes from.

There are friends I have who I know would outright reject Red Pill truths, but more so their lives would be turned upside down by having to confront those truths. I have a very good friend who’s remarried and living a new life with his second wife, who is still clinging to all of the internalized Beta illusions and behaviors that contributed to his first brutal divorce.

I could make him aware of all the factors that led up to this very painful episode in his life. I could run down the list of how the woman he married early in life followed the time line I put forth in Preventive Medicine to the letter, why his daughters are both following her footsteps and why his son will grow into being a martyred Beta White Knight like himself.

I could also explain all the factors that led to his new wife’s need for him (who by his Beta measures he’s thrilled with), but I ask myself, why destroy that bliss for him? He’s not now, nor likely will be, ready to have any of that explained. My concern is that he’s too far along in life to bear the burden of that truth. He’d have trouble letting go. His mind would turn against him.

If he were to reach that point of desperation again I’d certainly be compelled to reach out to him and offer the Red Pill to him, but as I’ve said in the past, unplugging men from the Matrix is a lot like triage – save the ones you can, read last rites to the dying. But this guy’s not dying and giving him the medicine might be worse than his conditions.

Law 10 – Infection: avoid the unhappy and unlucky.

Though your compassionate, charitable side may compel you to associate with the sad and downtrodden, if power attainment is your goal then avoid such people. Their bad vibe and energy-draining demeanor are too often infectious. You run a very serious risk of falling into line with their misery. Instead spend your time with people who are happy and successful. You can die from someone else’s misery – emotional states are as infectious as disease.

When I quote Law 10 it’s usually in response to a guy dealing with troubled, toxic women dragging them down into the quicksand of their own making. The Savior Schema usually warrants this truth; it’s a want in a belief that a woman will appreciate and reciprocate for a man ready to be the solution to her problems. However, the same can apply for men who attempt to free the minds of other men.

In both volumes of The Rational Male I make a specific effort to address that Rollo Tomassi doesn’t want to be a savior – I want men to be their own saviors because, although I may present Red Pill truths, it’s ultimately a man who needs to be the director of his own life. If the true measure of power is the degree of control a man has over his own life, relying on a savior, relying on how well one conforms to his plan, is really a limit on that power.

As I state in the books, I’m not interested in Tomassi clones, this is why I’m humbled by every man’s story I’m emailed or commented on about how they changed their lives with what I put forth in my writing.

From the Roosh forum again:

The only ‘danger’ the red pill presents is one’s own inability to let go of previous beliefs when confronted with truth. The red pill makes you look in the mirror and come to terms with your own ego and the lies it convinced you of.

“You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.”

Our ego is what we’re ultimately protecting. Most people don’t have an identity beyond their ego, that’s why most of the population can’t handle the red pill. Unless you were born with red pill parents, being raised blue pill and transitioning to red (altering your very reality) will always be traumatic on some level.

I’m of the opinion that trauma and crisis are necessary components to arriving at a point where a man is open to Red Pill awareness. I realize how distorted that sounds. It should be that a rational laying out of Red Pill truths should be self-evident, but it’s important to contrast that hope with the lifetime of feminine-primary conditioning men receive since their infancy.

There will always be people who will never accept even to most base and evident Red Pill fundamental truths. I completely understand Wutang’s premise for wanting to create our own manospherean tribes. We’ve had a good bit of commentary regarding Jack Donovan’s (Way of Men) call for organizing in like-minded collectives of men, and while I agree and find that laudable, I also know that isolation is dangerous.

Even by Law 10 it makes sense to surround oneself with the “happy and successful”; that’s a pretty deductive truth. However, I can’t ignore that many of the most condition-blinded people are also the most happy. I know multi-millionaires who are among the most abject Betas with regard to their intersexual relations.

So I guess what I’m saying is that there needs to be a level of discernment and discretion in this regard. I reach over half a million viewers / readers every month on TRM without advertising, without proselytizing, and men seem to find my works more and more. When the student is ready the teacher will appear – these men are seeking out the Red Pill and I suspect more will as Open Hypergamy and the machinations of the Feminine Imperative become unignorable.

You can’t teach those unwilling to learn – maybe it’s less about being convincing and more about being ready to help when the opportunities arise? That’s not me being magnanimous, that’s me being practical.

When you say FUN you mean from a woman’s perspective. Same as when the advice is to have interesting hobbies, it really means have hobbies interesting to women. What we as men find to be fun or interesting is of no interest to women.

Again, wear the costume and do the dance. The man must act, perform, and entertain. If he enjoys that or not is immaterial. It’s the process, a job, a chore and you get paid (hopefully) in pussy.

Unless you don’t, then it stands to reason that wallowing in misery, and/or surrounding yourself with people who wallow in misery, would be a stressor.

Now, before you request data and charts and studies that PROVE being in proximity to miserable people will kill you in a week, let’s use common sense and a little less rigidity to understand the point being made.

From the Reddit Link:

“theredpill is a hate subreddit, the only question is if you support them. They have been invading this community and making it unsafe for our community members, so we are taking preventative measures.”

You see here why it is so important for SJW’s to infiltrate all manner of organizations.

Dissent is dangerous (for them), and ANYWHERE it lives, it must be strangled under the cloak of ‘making things safe’.

You can’t even make your own space or place, because they can’t tolerate anyone disagreeing, anywhere. They will invade it, co-opt it, and then convert it.

Humans have evolved the ability to actually come to believe their own lies, as a way of avoiding the lie detection of others and seeming to be sincere about something untrue. Some can do this better than others. Those who can “believe their own bullshit” are often more charismatic to others and better manipulators (i.e. alpha). That is why the “new age guru” often gets so much tail…and sometimes actually believes what he’s shoveling too…

Rollo, Some of the comments above hint at, what I believe, is the central difficulty for men to accept the red pill…the fact that it does not provide a ready-made meaning for their life. Such ready-made meaning is why many men hold onto a blue pill ideology, rather than operating from a red pill position of praxeology and pragmatism. Specifically, while a red pill perspective logically appraises roles such as “white knight” or “beta provider” as failed mating strategies, men within those roles are more concerned with maintaining the positive symbolic identity and psychological meaning it provides them, than they… Read more »

@Dr. J

Given that, the red pill may need to evolve further, especially if it wants to be a viable perspective for more men.

Not sure I agree with this. Isn’t there going to be a natural tendency toward eventually figuring out one’s own meaning with the restoration of masculinity and its natural tendency toward independent action and thought? Do you really need a pre-packaged “meaning of life” when you’re trying to give men the tools to seek it out on their own instead of coddling them like their previous beliefs did?

Female interests and hobbies, male interests and hobbies, smarts, big brain, big heart, compassion, mercy, generosity, philanthropy etc, etc, are not sexual turn ons.

@ Sun Wukong In any tribe of men, all men are more or less “masculine”, but there is still a hierarchy of leadership. So, being a man does not always result in “independent action and thought”. Some men get meaning by following and being part of the group, rather than leading themselves or the group. Right now, the red pill only appeals to men who are leaders. It does not appeal to the “rank and file” men who get meaning from following and being a part of something, rather than figuring out meaning independently for themselves. Frankly, followers are often… Read more »

Reminds me of the old quote about trading liberty for security and ending up with neither.

Also I remember one about sticks and stones being harmful, and words being benign. That doesn’t apply to SJWs, being as they’re weak, defective, degenerate subhumans. So one can engage with them with words and cause all manner of psychic damage. I find that’s as much fun as shooting prairie dogs.

@Dr. J Frankly, followers are often the majority of men…and that is why the red pill often does not appeal to them as a mainstream audience. This still kind of leads to the same point for me though. OK, they’re followers. Red Pill is encouraging natural leaders to become leaders… of the men that want to be followers. The leaders determine their own meaning, handing it down to the followers. This still leaves a situation where I don’t think TRP needs to ever evolve to dictate meaning even to followers; that’s up to the leaders who are created as a… Read more »

@ KFG When the red pill “evolves” into a ready made meaning of life, it will be the blue pill. The truth is the truth. At least it would be a ready-made meaning more compatible with the “masculine imperative” too (as it was in past generations). Most people cannot survive outside of one “matrix” or another anyway. So, while it is noble to free those who can be freed entirely, is it not better to simply transplant the rest into a more agreeable social construct? After all, that’s what we’ve had for all of human history anyway…only the programming has… Read more »

Novaseeker is correct. The male:female ratio is the problem.

Take a look at the countries that are named by PUAs who travel as having great, feminine chicks. They’re all places with sub 1.0 male:female ratios. The lower than number is, the more favorable it is to men. In countries that “used to be great, but aren’t as much anymore” (Brazil, for example) they’re approaching 1.0.
