Most of society's ills could be solved by people actively searching for information instead of just digesting whatever is given them with whatever spin was added.

Essentially, public school has brought about the downfall of the west.

Most people get red pilled through life experiences eventually. This is one hell of a black pill she had to swallow.

There is no "black pill". Stop using that term. It disposes the original metaphor (blue pill is the lies society has constructed around you, red pill is seeing the lies) in favor of identifying ideologies with colors. Of course, my ideology is the blackest, just like my heart.

What does red food coloring look like when it's in its bottle? Black. It's the same thing, just more concentrated.

1. So does blue.

2. This is still being divorced from the metaphor because

2a. There are no black pills in the matrix.

2b. You're suggesting concentrating red pills. What can that mean besides multiple redpills? Why would you use the term blackpill vs multiple redpills, or even better, identifying redpills by issue?

3. Even if we accept that blackpill means something like "multiple redpills", its clearly not what it means in the original context

Most people get red pilled through life experiences eventually. This is one hell of a black pill she had to swallow. It showed everything she's been told up to this point is a lie...

3a. It might redpill her with respect to refugees being peacful. It will not redpill her on Jews, niggers, men vs women, Muslims in general, etc.

3b. If all it takes is one issue to be "blackpilled", then what is the difference between that and "redpill" in the first place?

4. "blackpill" adds nothing to illustrate a point that "redpill" or "multiple redpills" cannot. The reason its used is rhetorical, its because edgy faggots think its cool. It actually obfuscates the issue by muddying the metaphor.
