TL;DR, know yourself and question your values. Don’t inherently assume that everything redpill is correct, apply critical thinking to everything
Hi. I’ve been reading redpill for ~a year, more or less lurking and this is my first post here. I’ve been plowing a lot of redpill material and I truthfully think people should read more of it; not to learn it like the alphabet, but rather to give it a thought.
A lot of the newcomers here take the pill too literal; they read it like kid’s to extremely religious people read their respective religious book - they read it and apply it without critical thinking, and when they grow up that is the axiom of their life which cannot be questioned. This is wrong out of the aspect that you can’t interpret everything in this world in a literal sense. While I agree that a lot of the philosophy of redpill is inherently correct because that’s how our psychology/biology work, much here is very subjective as well. I remember a while back ago I commented on a post and my answer long story short stated that one should read redpill and judge themselves if it’s correct or not, and got downvoted because what I said wasn’t redpill. But isn’t that the point of redpill though? To question the things you’ve been taught, to be the judge over your own opinions? Redpill at the surface teaches you to game girls, deep insight redpill teaches you to be a man.
“Red pill philosophy is here to show you how the game works, not to tell you how to live your life. We give advice when asked, sure, but you live the way that suits you best; you own your choices.” ~ /u/IllimitableMan
So what is a man? A man is someone who can hold his frame and has a path. So how would a man hold frame? By abiding to what he thinks is right. In the bottom it doesn’t matter what the fuck redpill says, afterall you’re a man and you should be able to state your own mind and opinion. Deep insight redpill teaches you to have a backbone, don’t be afraid to have a backbone even to those who taught you how to grow one, that’d be a slave morality, not something alpha.
Critical thinking is something I don’t read about here too often. But that’s what you should read and learn between the lines of most things here, otherwisely you’re just learning to use one single tool and not the whole toolkit. If you just want girls you could as well just learn PUA, because if you’re not willing to man up there are no need for you to infest this community. If you come here and spit shit to people who actually need guidance, there is a risk that you lead them astray. However, if you’re here to actually become a man, then critical thinking is something you should learn. Redpill is a so called ‘hard to swallow truth pill’ but what it actually means to go from bluepill to redpill is that you apply critical thinking to the bluepill ways you’ve been taught. You question the things that is inherently right according to society (turns out most things are false) and you should keep questioning things even after you’ve swallowed the pill. This’ll keep you from stagnating.
