This is the time when we get the obligatory optimism. We see people posting “Merry Christmas” and “Happy Holidays.” We see that social media is littered with a variety of “Don’t Stop Believing” quotes. And we get the typical resolutions and “you can do it” replies of encouragement.

And yet…

None of this can become a reality without a red-pill perspective (perhaps even a black pill). To make any change, you’ll have to swallow an unpleasant truth. You’ll have to spar with a bevy of lies that stand before you. You’ll have to discern the charlatans from the genuine thought leaders.

This will be painful…and most people are unwilling to accept the darkest of realities.

Resolutions must have a red pill reality. Otherwise, the words we speak during the holidays are nothing but empty platitudes.

  1. I think the pills you’re speaking of are deeper than “common sense.”

    There are layers of truth to reality. Newton was right about acceleration and force, but Einstein was righter. In the crystal ball of television news we see the worst, surface lever of truth. That’s all. That’s all we can ever count on from those things.
