All they were good for anyway were the ‘pill’ terms

05 Aug

Let’s face it; like ‘Fight Club’, the ‘Matrix’ movies were mildly entertaining but way overrated, especially in the Manosphere; I was wary of them even before I saw any when a Satanist acquaintance of mine in university praised them because he loved the idea that our reality is an illusion, and that there’s some hidden reality beyond it, where the real truth lies, etc. etc.

IOW the ‘Red Pill’ versus the ‘Blue Pill’…

Yes, it was and still is a useful metaphor that the Manosphere first then the dissident right in general adopted, then it became corrupted by virtue-signalling purity-spirallers who had to show they were even more ‘Red-Pilled’ than the ‘Red-Pilled’ by declaring themselves ‘Black-Pilled’, blah blah blah…

Ah well. Whatever. Way past caring about any of that, these days…

Back to the movies: As with Chuck Palahniuk, the Wachowskis turned out to be perverse Alphabet People, too… In both cases, we really ought to re-examine those works in the light of knowing more about their creators now. Unlike Forney, I don’t think that the Wachowskis’ declaration about their work is merely a Woke retconning a la J.K. Rowling with her declaration about a Harry Potter character having been queer; I think viewing the Matrix series through the understanding that these were two guys struggling with gender dysphoria, whose internal realities, as they saw it, didn’t conform to the external realities of what they were, explains much of the world of the Matrix – it is exactly that. Rowling is different; she never was an Alphabet Person herself…

    The one good thing about all the happy Hollywood horseshit is that it will be hard for these weird projects to get financing. Who would invest in something that will only appeal to five percent of the population?

      Alas, all they invest in now is capeshit, because foreigners like Red Chinese can follow along easily with the comic book plotlines.

        Hollywood has messed up with that in the past. They don’t always know what will fly in China. Heck, they don’t even know what will play in Peoria.

        Mostly, alas, though, the formulas work…

    The radical right is Gnostic, that’s why the terms “red pill” and “blue pill” resonate in the various spheres: the radical right wants to know the truth, beyond good and evil—the forbidden truth, delivered by Luciferian science, is red pill knowledge. The Wachowskis are practicing a form of perverted Gnosticism; they don’t understand the concept of the hermaphrodite. They think that a hermaphrodite means literally changing sex; actually, it’s a spiritual operation—no enlightenment for them.

      That resonates. 🙂

    Their previous movie “Bound” shows they had a lesbian fetish, which is a gateway to the mental illness of trannyism.

      Ah. Someone needs to do an analysis of lesbianism and M-F trans; sometimes I think some men become ‘women’ because (a) they want what they can’t get, and (b) they think they’ll be able to get when they become…

    “Fight Club” is gay porn. What is wrong with people who don’t see that? Oh, yeah, that.

      Exactly! Helena Bonham Carter was just a ruse. 🙂

    Futurama tore the Wachowskis a new one with this dialogue:

    Fry : Hey, why are they hooked up like that? Is it some kind of Craftmatic Adjustable Death Bed?

    Leela : Ah, ho ho, don’t be ridiculous. Their bodies are being used to generate electricity. The idea came from an old movie called ‘The Matrix’.

    Bender : But-but – wouldn’t almost anything make a better battery than a human body? Like a potato? Or a battery?

    Fry : Plus, no matter how much energy they produce, it would take more energy than that to keep them alive.

    Leela : I know, I know – it sounds absurd. In fact, when ‘The Matrix’ first came out, it seemed like the single crummiest, laziest, most awful dim-witted idea in the entire history of science fiction. But it turned out to be true.

    Fry : Who knew?

    Bender : Good work, writer of ‘The Matrix’!

    They aren’t feminine or masculine movies; they are hybrids – like the dysphoric siblings themselves.

    Here’s an alternate take in an entirely different direction:
