Today, it’s no secret that a lot of SJW teenagers love to compare the current political state of affairs to Harry Potter. They usually do so only to make vague moral points about the perceived similar moments between the books and the real world. It’s even become a source of laughter for a lot of the media outlets opposing the modern feminist movement. However, it must be questioned if this has any use to our movement, to which I say: yes. It may serve a purpose to understand both the enemy we face, and ourselves, as well as the obstacles that both movements share.
H.P. Lovecraft: the master of cosmic horror, literary genius and perhaps the first person to come up with the concept of the “red pill”.
Now, although the actual linguistic term “Red pill” comes from the matrix franchise, and is used in contemporary language to describe the act of someone waking up to modern stupidity of left-wing, postmodern feminism, and it’s perhaps hegemonic control over large aspects of society. The concept of people waking up to a great, obvious and simultaneously concealed truth is something which is distinctively Lovecraftian.
For those readers who are not familiar with Lovecraft’s work; the general theme of his horror is a character slowly becoming aware to the truth of the “great ones”, ancient and powerful god like beings that dwell on, or around earth, who are in their entirety so incomprehensible to humans that the ones who know about them either go mad through this knowledge, or start worshiping these beings as if they were gods in demented cults.
Now; for us when we “red pill” someone, from a Lovecraftian perspective, what we are doing is inviting fellow humans into this position of arcane knowledge that is aware of these unseen factors into society. Our Eldritch horror that we face is the forces of Feminism and its related doctrines.
Now; I’m sure many of you readers will be asking why this is important to know. And the answer to that is simple; it’s the same logic that the SJW’s use. Although linguistically they don’t seem to have a term for what we would call it (other than perhaps the “Feminist lenses”), they still actively try to recruit people based of the same privilege of access to information of an ancient horror. In their case, the horror of which they speak isn’t left wing feminism, for them it’s the patriarchy.
The now infamous quote by Anita Sarkeesian provides good evidence for this:
“The most liberating thing that ever happen to me and also the most frustrating for everyone around me, because like when you start learning about systems everything is sexist, everything is racist, everything is homophobic and you have to point it all out to everyone all the time”
What she is essentially saying, is in the context of her becoming a women’s studies major (the unlocking of the knowledge, or “red pilling”), she was able to see the horrors in the world for what they truly were.
Compare that line with this paragraph from the Call of Cthulhu;
“The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.”-Call of Cthulhu.
What Lovecraft writes here is that; yet again knowledge begets the knowing of horrors.
But, yet again. Why should we care? There have been tons of articles contemplating the strategy of SJW’s. But, dear reader, notice the sentence:
“Open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age”
The problem here lies, that for most people the forbidden knowledge that either provides, even when backed up with suitable evidence will be outright rejected as if it were mere lunacy. This applies to both the feminists, as well as us. Because to many people the assertion that there is a patriarchy, is just as ludicrous sounding as saying there is a feminist agenda to emasculate the western world. Although many people will entertain the idea, it is still an idea that many reject as an object of mere fantasy. Or;
“The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents”-The call of Cthulhu.
Further, look at the way we describe each other’s movements. The collectivised group of either respective group follows their eldritch horror:
For the feminist’s we are the rabid cult members following and worshiping the unimaginable horror of the patriarchy.
For us, the feminists are the rabid cult members following and worshiping the unimaginable horror of the leftist/SJW agenda.
And if you think this is just mere coincidence then look at the amount of people that reject thing’s like Climate change and the effectiveness of vaccines. And oddly, all on the same premise that there is some unknown force, or actors that are known to them, but not to the general population.
