How To Detect Blue Pill People And Their Peculiar Habits
Source: Ingenious Press (Digby Jones)
Being able to spot (and politely try to avoid) blue pill people is an important part of seeking an enlightened existence in the modern day United States.
The red pill and its opposite, the blue pill, are pop culture symbols representing the choices between people embracing the sometimes painful truth of reality (red pill) or continuing to exist in the ignorance of illusion (blue pill). The terms, popularized in science fiction culture, derive from the 1999 film ‘The Matrix’. In this article we will examine six phenomena where the people clearly shy away from the color red. They shall henceforth be known as blue pill people.
1. Thinks that the ‘Federal Reserve’ and ‘Federal Express’ are run by the federal government
The definition of federal is “having or relating to a system of government in which several states form a unity but remain independent in internal affairs”. What were the key words there? System of Government. It is truly amazing, even with all the documentaries and independent news sources available to the public, how many people still think that these institutions are affiliated with the federal government of the United States. That word “federal” plays around with their minds too much, and unfortunately for them it does not have a strong trademark. Anybody can start a private business and throw the word “federal” in there someplace. Swallow the red pill and get used to it.
2. Thinks that the ‘World Bank’ is a global bank
This follows closely in the footsteps of the previous entry, where a misleading adjective is used to give an institution an added aura of false mystique and holy-than-thou grandeur. The ‘World Bank’ was created at the 1944 Bretton Woods Conference, along with three other institutions which included the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Guess what, the World Bank and IMF are both based in Washington DC, and all ‘World Bank’ Presidents have been U.S. citizens since it’s inception. Nothing ‘worldly’ about it.
3. Thinks that the ‘Southern Poverty Law Center’ actually has something to do with poverty
It doesn’t. Unless their sole purpose is to shank all the patriotic and constitutional “extremist groups” into poverty through their cancerous fund-raising tactics…
4. Pro-Military “Patriots”
You know who these people are. They are the people with the “support our troops” bumper stickers plastered on their vehicle. They are the people who believe that military interventions abroad are “protecting our freedom” somehow. They are the people who blindly thank soldiers “for their service” or something to that effect. They are the people who are completely oblivious to the incredible amount of death, destruction, and suffering that our aggressive foreign policy unleashes upon the world.
Unfortunately, this is the most damaging brand of ‘blue pill people’ in the country today. Their emotional support of the military, no matter the circumstances, gives passive validation to the numerous warmongering misadventures that our country engages in overseas. Our nation was founded upon the principles and desires to be a peaceful and enlightened republic, free from the intermittent conflict and squabbling which had tormented the monarchies of Europe for centuries. It was not supposed to be the giant red-white-and-blue blazing bully that it is today.
These types of blue pill people think they’re patriots, but are rather the epitome of what would be considered “Unamerican” by the visions of our founding fathers.
5. Die-hard NFL fans
Casual NFL fans are not necessarily blue pill (though a lot of them certainly are). However the REALLY big NFL fans show little doubt that they’re unwilling to enter the rabbit hole. The NFL and military patriotism go hand-in-hand more than just about any other major civilian institution in the United States, and these die-hard fans will always fawn over every military appearance or “support the troops” shtick coming from the pitch or the P.A.
And then they wonder why essentially no other countries play this brand of sport…
6. “U-S-A! U-S-A!” Chanters
You merely have to listen to these people (even from a great distance) to quickly deduce that this group of almost exclusively U.S. residents is very much blue pill. They can generally be found at sporting events or communal gatherings, where some sort of national ‘victory’ is supposed to make them erupt in this irritating and haughty celebration of ‘Muricana. The sports fans are often merely irritating (but are probably pro-military patriots as well), while the following examples show how destructive the “U-S-A! U-S-A!” chant can be for the national psyche. Unfortunately, these types of people are difficult to coax out of their brainwashed habits. They can only save themselves. Try and avoid them like an out of control fire.
A Major League Baseball (MLB) game in Philadelphia erupts into the “U-S-A! U-S-A!” chant after news of Osama bin Laden’s death is announced. Not only is there considerable evidence that he died many years before this 2011 revelation, but we are not supposed to be a nation that jubilantly celebrates death.
A gathering of young Boston residents dive into the “U-S-A! U-S-A!” chant following news that the marathon bomber has been apprehended. They are essentially celebrating the death of American freedom, as Boston was placed on lockdown while considerable numbers of militarized police roamed the city during this incident in 2013. Must….not…..vomit….
