The Movie Matrix is not the Anglo-American Matrix: Why the Blue Pill is an Imperfect Analogy for Real-World Self-Delusion

In the Matrix, Neo is famously offered the Red Pill of Truth and the Blue Pill of Illusion. As everyone knows, the Blue Pill means bliss in the Matrix for Neo, however fake and illusory; while the Red Pill means awakening to a terrible truth:

Morpheus: This is the world that you know. The world as it was at the end of the twentieth century. It exists now only as part of a neural-interactive simulation, that we call the Matrix.

Morpheus turns to Neo
Morpheus: You've been living in a dream world, Neo. the world as it exists today.

Morpheus changes the channel on the televison.

The sky is an endless sea of black and green bile. The earth, scorched and split like burnt flesh, spreads out beneath us as we enter the television.

Morpheus : the desert of the real.

However, the real-world analogy to the Blue Pill is Sexual False Consciousness - false hope and self-delusion without any material or sexual compensation. While the fictional Matrix at least satisfies Neo's basic needs and offers the traitor Cypher boundless sex and status, the real-world Anglo-American Matrix offers the average Blue-Pilled male precisely nothing. He does not even get Cypher's illusory money, women and power. Instead, he kids himself he is getting these things while getting nothing at all: that is the crucial difference.

Does the reader follow me thus far?

So the Blue Pill analogy linking Neo's Matrix to Anglo-American reality is somewhat flawed. Although I am a libertarian, I borrowed the idea of False Consciousness from socialist thinkers like Karl Marx and Antonio Gramsci. Both said something very interesting about the concept they created: because False Consciousness - a kind of mass self-delusion about the nature of reality - is continually refuted by a bitter-tasting reality, its hold over the masses can never be absolute. Despite society's best efforts to indoctrinate the masses via schools, advertising and the legacy media, a seed of revolutionary resistance will always exist. The same is also true of Sexual False Consciousness: however hard a sexually disenfranchised male tells himself he is banging models every night, he is not banging models every night. In fact, the Anglosphere (and especially North America) is a dating and relationship nightmare for men! For this reason, the potential for social revolution and resistance is always present in the real world, unlike Neo's near-flawless Matrix with its myriad sexual and material compensations for compliant participants. 

Is the reader still with me?

Awakened men reading these words threw off the chains of Sexual False Consciousness and all others have the same potential for Awakening: reality itself ensures that. Black men, white men or Asian men all experience the same Anglo-American reality with its misandrist, gynocentric fixations. And however much the ailing lamestream Anglo media claim the Anglosphere is some kind of sexual Shangri La full of kindly, liberated angels offering free sex to everybody, the sterile and oppressive reality of Anglo-American existence demonstrates otherwise.

Because of this, the Anglo-American Matrix and its institutional misandry is at best a provisional government, not an eternal one.

Karl Marx: wrong about most things, not False Consciousness
