Actually, this episode of Redonkulas is for the guys who are "red pill" and maybe don't know it- but all of you will find yourselves nodding along to the points that Popp makes here:
The most critically important point that Popp makes is that, the moment you start accepting the truth, you can never look at the world the same way again. You cannot go back. You cannot avoid it. You can only move forward, knowing that much of what you once believed to be true is simply wrong, and that you must now figure out how to deal with the world as it is, not how it ought to be.
The results can be jarring, to say the least.
You will quickly find that your tolerance for bullshit drops to zero in a very big hurry. You cannot stand being around idiots and you have no interest in dealing with their nonsense.
You won't be able to stand the banal conversations that excite everyone else. Talking to people at work can become sheer torture; while they're all nattering on about the latest episode of Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead or- in the case of the women- Keeping up with the Kardashians (dear God, just kill me now...), you're frantically looking for the nearest fire alarm to pull, just so you can get out of having to deal with such insipid nonsense.
You won't care about politics very much. This blog didn't exist back in 2012, but I can tell you that my interest in who became President could reasonably have been described as: ZFG. It just did not matter. They were both horrible candidates and it became increasingly difficult to tell one apart from the other.
(That, by the way, is what makes 2016 so unusual. For the first time in literally an entire generation, we have an actual choice available. It isn't necessarily a great choice, but I've seen far worse.)
You can't care much anymore about the same things that distract most people. Fantasy football leagues become completely stupid to you, because you start caring only about doing things that actually matter to you, that are real and interesting for you.
And as a result, you're going to begin to cut people out of your life who exhibit the traits that you once did.
Accepting the truth comes at a terrible cost. It means simply walking away from people and things that were once very dear to you- because you have changed, but they have not.
At some point, you'll be hit in the gut by this horrible feeling that you are alone, and that you will spend the rest of your life that way. And you will be tempted to save those around you so that they, too, can join you on your journey.
In reality, you cannot save anyone. You can only show them the way. That is when you realise that, actually, being alone isn't that terrible after all.
And then, eventually, you find others like you, who have embraced the same truths that you have, and paid the same price. That is when you realise that what you went through was worth all of the agony, the doubt, and the sorrow.
It was worth the price, because now you are free- to live your own life, on your own terms, the way God Almighty intended you to do. And nothing and no one can stop you from doing what makes you happy.
That is why the Manosphere is so important. It is literally saving lives, every day. That is why we matter, and why we are not going away.
