Remember The First Rule of Fight Club

March 12, 2021

So you found The Red Pill, read the sidebar and some posts by your favourite uncle or vanguard. You are now lifting and even implementing cardio like I said. Nice. You had a few ONS and even got a plate or two now, shit, liberating isn't it? You can see through the lies. The veil is finally lifted. You are a free man, Neo. Congratulations are in order.

But you see your friend over there. He's still unchanged. Still blind. Still believes that women are queens, they are angels, and they aren't into being dominated in the bedroom, those types of girls must be defective. He lucks out here and there, but he isn't consistent. He's missing something.

So, as a good friend, you think about telling him about your new enlightenment, your new vision, your new power. It will be the edge he needs. I mean who wouldn't want to be red pilled? Surely every man needs to be red pilled? For their own good right? ( Thinking exercise - but does every man deserve to be red pilled? Is every man willing to do what you did?) And it backfires. Maybe by a lot, maybe by a little. But it does.

What happened Apollo? Why the fuck isn't my friend getting it? He's my friend, he needs to see that his world view and vision is wrong. We went to the same school together, we play together, we laugh together, we even share the same music taste..how can he be so different to me?

Back to the drawing board, Neo.

TRP isn't a crusade, its not your religion to go round knocking on other people's doors asking to convert to. Its just some bullshit you read on the internet made for and by random internet strangers. Its your journey, your worldview and yours alone. You aren't some superhero who's been elected to save the world unplugging each beta one by one. Nobody elected you to save anyone or the world.

How would you like it if I just came to you and starting talking about how islam/mormonism/feminism/insert any world view can save you, what you currently knew was all wrong and you just need to accept this new world view out of nowhere?

When you engage in converting people to TRP (your new world view), this is a form of validation seeking. You want to feel validated for knowing what you now know and what better way to convince an outsider who at best, is probably neutral, and at worst, believes almost the total opposite to you. (Remember what you thought before you came here and how much you changed?) It doesn't matter where you are coming from, as a friend, mentor, brother, teacher, drill sergeant or uncle, trying to convince someone else of your world view, without being asked, is still a form of validation seeking. You learnt not to seek validation from girls but you forgot about not seeking validation from your male peers.

But let's say you disagree. You don't think its validation seeking to quasi-impose your new internet thing on a stranger (I mean, you won't take "No you are wrong" as an answer will you? You will try to dig and dig until he finally cedes and sees the light right?). So you do just that. You commit to red pilling him.

But what exactly have you just committed to? You just committed to breaking down his world view and replacing it with yours. Everyday, your friend interacts with this world view (the blue pill), he sees everything through this lense. He brings this lense everywhere: to the club, to the coffee shop, on the train, to his social circle, etc. Its how he interacts with the world and how the world interacts with him. You have now committed yourself to saving him...from himself. How are you going to accomplish that? How are you going to save him from himself without him even realising he needs saving in the first place?

You can't.

This is not me just theorising. Like most of you, I once ignored this advice and thought surely my friends would be different. (Remember, TRP isn't meant to be taken as gospel, you are meant to go out and test what TRP tells you to do and sometimes things you aren't meant to do).

I have tried red pilling my friends. 3 in fact. All to varying degrees, one of them I linked the sidebar to and later on some of TRP's best posts, another one I linked him just the handbook to and another one, after I got some common sense, just tested the waters with. No linking to any resources, just some vague chit chat, no trp terms, and saw how he reacted. And not one bit the line. Some of you have even worse stories where your blue pilled friends not only couldn't take your advice but decided to snitch on you to your social circle/plates. That's what no pussy can do to a guy. That is the power of blue pill conditioning, where your own "friend" can betray to you. That's what you are up against. Luckily, I wasn't as unfortunate as that. Well not yet, anyway.

You can't teach those who are not wiling to be taught. Pareto shows 80% of the guys out there are like this. They decided to be lowest common denominators, to sheeple their way through life, adopting a value system that is not theirs, morals they don't have to think about or challenge, mindsets and thought patterns fed to them, just floating through life listening to inane tv romcoms with laugh tracks (think about how fucked up the world is where we need the shows we watch to tell us when they're being funny). They need to be like this. The system needs people like this. It runs on people like this.

Now is this post written entirely as a black pill? Eh, not necessarily. There is a way to red pill your friends, its not very efficient but it is a way nonetheless. How you ask?

The teacher only appears after the student is ready.

You let your actions do the talking, eventually one or two of your friends may get curious, and ask for your advice. Only then you can divulge your perspective. However, do not be surprised that despite genuinely wanting advice, TRP may not be the solution they seek. They may want something that still adheres to "girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice". They can't handle what you know. When they ask for advice, you are going to have to calibrate. Don't assume this means you can red pill them, don't go full Rambo despite them seeming wanting to change. Ask me how I know.


“The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. 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.”

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
