The First One’s Free

Red Pills

The phrase “taking the red pill” has become a bit of a cliche in dissident circles. It’s so shopworn that pointing out it’s a cliche is becoming cliche. That’s not to say the metaphor is ineffective. Tropes are tropes because they work.

It’s also been frequently observed that getting redpilled, i.e. waking up to sociopolitical realities the powers that be would prefer you remain oblivious to, is not a one-and-done proposition.

One epiphany can’t break the conditioning imposed by government, media, and academia. Instead there’s a series of red pills the seeker of enlightenment must take, each expanding his awareness of the truth.

Realizing that the entire news media isn’t just biased, but is knowingly and with malice aforethought pushing enemy propaganda, might be the first red pill most normal people take.

Back in the pre-911 days, most Fox News viewers and Rush Limbaugh listeners agreed that the mainstream media had a leftist bias. Of course, the same normies insisted there was nothing wrong with that. The shenanigans were in lying about that bias.

The media’s mask has rapidly slipped over the years to the point that most people now understand it’s not just a case of undisclosed bias. CNN, The Washington Post, and Buzzfeed are propaganda organs through which our elites wage constant psychological warfare on us.

Becoming aware of enemy action is a starting point, not an endpoint. Once you realize the folks in charge really do have it in for you, a whole slew of other questions naturally arise.

Why do our rulers hate us? What do they want? Is nonstop media propaganda the only weapon in their arsenal?

Consider elitist toady Bill Maher’s unctuous micturition all over half the country.

As with all approved “comedians”, Maher’s job is to perpetually tell coastal urbanites the only joke they’ll tolerate, because it strokes their all-consuming vanity: “You are morally and materially superior to those rubes in flyover country. You’re on the right side of history.”

Maher’s brand of compulsive back-patting also serves to salve urban bubble dwellers’ inescapable realization that they’re essentially parasites living off the flyover rubes’ useful labor.

The cosmopolitan jet set’s deep, festering resentment over their total dependence on normal people also drives their compulsive need to viciously mock real America’s beliefs. It’s why we have nine-year-old drag queens shoved in our faces on TV.


The main focus of our elites’ diabolical hatred is, of course, America’s traditional Christian faith. Hence the relentless push for same-sex “marriage” and transgenderism and the merciless persecution of those who object.

Most people who wake up to the spiritual nature of the current conflict attribute the problem to a sudden rise in anti-Christian sentiment. Another red pill moment is understanding that this is a reversal of cause and effect.

An anomalous rise in secularism/nu-paganism isn’t to blame for renewed persecution of the Church. Matters have only deteriorated to this point because widespread apostasy has made the Church vulnerable.

Ask yourself: If a majority of Americans truly followed a robust, traditional Christianity, would the Clown World circus still be in town?

To ask the question is to answer it. Anytime before the cultural revolution of the 60s, the freak show would’ve been run out of town on a rail.

Here’s the red pill that’s hardest for ex-normies to swallow: The West’s decline is a direct consequence of the Enlightenment thinking that overturned centuries of tradition ca. 300 years ago. Clown World was baked into the Classical Liberal cake.

The advent of Liberalism started the countdown to the day when our store of Christian cultural capital ran out. When a people toss out a worldview based on objective truth and embrace a philosophy based on compromise, fallen human nature takes over, and this is the result.

But that’s not the last pill in the bottle.

The Leftist death cult that is the ultimate logical conclusion of Liberalism tries to replace absolute truth by attempting to absolutize freedom. Thus, it’s at odds with reality. God is undefeated. Clown world is destined for a fall.

That means what comes next, by necessity, will bear little resemblance to the neoliberal order we’ve known our whole lives. Clinging to Liberal concepts like freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and blank slate equality only holds the door to Clown World open.

Here’s the real choice:

  • You take the blue pill. You go back to sleep and persist in delusions like absolute freedom and equality. Clown World marches ahead on squeaky shoes.
  • You take the red pill. You wake up and embrace the fact that Christianity, in its traditional orthodox form is a necessary pillar of Western civilization. You realize that error has no rights and live your life accordingly.
I should have mentioned that there’s also a time limit and a gun to your head–to everyone’s heads. Either enough of us take the red pill to turn this clown car around, or the West lapses into a dark age–not the fedora-tipping fake kind, the real deal–from which no light can emerge.
