I think we could see a dramatic cultural shift but it wont approach anything close to a singularity. Misinformation persists because people on some level like being misinformed. It's just easier. We are already seeing a crack down on disruptive technology in the west particularly with the move to censor the internet in the name of hate speech and fundamentalism. Power consolidates until it becomes unresponsive and collapses under its own weight. While people can wake up for a generation or two max, the subtle manipulations will always push the narrative onto safer footing for those with power.

I definitely agree that no matter how things turn out the state will always be seeking more power for itself.

It depends on what the "truth" of those subjects is. Is it an opinion, or a fact. Is it based on science, or feelings. The concept of the red pill is fucking dumb, there is never an end to the quest for knowledge. When you start to think that you, and your group are the only ones capable of correct thought you give in to prejudice, and forget to be critical of your own theories. There are no red pills, only blue pills that have been painted red. There is no single universal truth for feminism, Israel, central banking, the media or any of the subjects that you listed. If you want to talk specifics, then we can have a reasonable discussion.

The idea of "taking the red pill" only refers to the casting off of propagandist brainwashing and seeing reality. It has nothing to do with being "the only ones capable of correct thought." It's merely a term for a process that anyone can go through. From what I've seen, most "red-pilled" people believe anyone can be red-pilled if presented enough truth (or revealed lies). At least, that's what the Honey Badger Brigade does -- they provide counterpoint to the feminist narrative, hoping that someone will end up taking the red pill themselves.

There is no rejection "all at once" of any ideology or belief. It has been shown that, when presented with objective evidence that contradicts a belief, people will hold more tightly to those beliefs. Humans would much rather believe an easy lie than a difficult truth. That's why social change is always a slow process. Each person needs to change their minds individually; it's a personal process that has no generalized analog. In fact, the biggest reason beliefs change on a societal level is because the people who hold the old beliefs die off.

These changes don't reach a "tipping point"? When every one around them is adopting new beliefs does that encourage "followers" to shift?

I think it will depend on the level of Mandela effect, suppressing of history and degree of indoctrinated 'facts'; Some time ago they interviewed some German millenniums in the streets who wasn't sure who this guy Adolf Hitler was, no joke. The "smartest" of them answered: Wasn't it him that helped the Jews!?

I was under the impression white guilt was hammered into Germans early and often, even including trips to the concentration camps.

Seems to me that the German education/media has been more occupied with diversity and multicultural indoctrination of the younger generation. Bet if you asked a gen x German that he could tell everything about WW2. What do i know. I just saw this interview and facepalmed.
