"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 whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill: you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes." - Morpheus, The Matrix

'Red pill' has become a popular phrase among cyberculture and signifies a free-thinking attitude, and a waking up from a "normal" life of sloth and ignorance. Red pills prefer the truth, no matter how gritty and painful it may be.

My comfortable illusions fed to me by Fox and CNN were shattered when I realized we weren't nation building in the Middle East, but serving the interests of military tech corporations and politicians at the cost of peoples lives. I'd taken the Red pill.

The term "red pill" derives from the 1999 hit film: The Matrix. People who are red pilled are often curious about their surroundings and the things they've been taught throughout their lives, that are willing to discover any hidden truths regardless of how painful and dark those truths may be, to see past lies for what they really are. Not to confuse you with the black pill, which are people that see the world for what it truly is, a joke, and believe that nothing that has happened can be changed and or reversed, red pills share some of the same qualities in which they too are able to see the world for how it is. Red pills not only understand and see the world for how it is, but they desire change in the world, believing that things can still be fixed and the worlds current problems can be solved through other methods. People that are red pilled are usually nationalists and or national socialists, which are people that advocate for their own countries and the growth of their own race of people based in that nation.
Person 1: "This world is fine as it is, I honestly see nothing wrong with it."
Red pill: "Reconsider what you're being taught, either in your own schools or in general society, there are many things wrong with this world, and you being brainwashed is not allowing you to see those truths."
