    Maybe some journalists found out about them.... maybe the posters then admitted it's true when they got caught.

    That's the irony; all Trump fans take the Blue pill. They live in a fantasy world what hasn't existed since Leave It to Beaver.

    Red Pill is reality, it allowed the character in the movie to break free of the virtual world he was unknowingly living inside of a cocoon. The Blue Pill allows them the bliss of continuing to dream and live in the fantasy world.

    On another thread the Garden of Eden was discussed. Eve swallowed the Red Pill and asked Adam to do the same even though God told them not to do so. IMO, Red Pill good, Blue Pill is the waste of an opportunity.

    Well that's interesting. I think they have the colors mixed up. Should be the ORANGE pill

    The movie was released April 1999. The Millennial New Year and Y2K were still 8 months in the future....much less 9/11 and the 2000 election fiasco.

    Pleasantville and The Truman Show are two perfect movies to watch about being red/blue pilled.

    Excellent observation and agreed.

    This article is from the Adventist makes an interesting correlation between Jesus, Red-pill champion and the conservative establishment, Blue-pill proponents. It even mentions Pleasantville.

    https://atoday.org/red-or-blue-pill-...church-lifers/
    There are many examples in scripture that describe a matrix culture. Jesus often argued with the church elite in his day over tradition vs real worship. One time, blue pill leaders questioned Jesus why the disciples were doing things differently and not washing their hands like the other conformists. Jesus’ reply was swift and cutting:

    Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites; as it is written: “These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.” You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to human traditions – Mark 7:6-8(NIV).

    Jesus nailed it in that last sentence. They were plugged into their own concocted world and failed to see the big picture. The blue pill poppers, the lifers, had become too familiar and dependent on the system of rules and teachings for their own selfish emotional fulfilment. They had worshipped the church, its buildings and its benefits instead of the One who gave them those things. They worshipped the gift and not the Giver.

    Other two movies, not as good as those two, are good about that too. "Equilibrium" and "The Giver". Christian Bale played in the first one and Jeff Bridges in the latter. And I just noticed the word "Giver" in the quote. LOL.

    The Equilibrium was the better of the two. Despite the religious angle of the Adventist article, it shows the choice people have in seeing the truth or remaining in ignorance be it the Tree of Knowledge, multiple Biblical references to removing scales from one's eyes or even Star Wars where Luke learns the truth nature of his reality/destiny.

    I'm aware of the movie, and I'm sure I've caught snippets on HBO, etc.. I was just never really interested in fantasy. Are you saying it was prophetic?
