Beliefs in the manosphere are often termed “red pill,” an analogy to the Matrix, where those who know “truth” are unplugged from the system and can see the world for what it really is, but men who use this analogy did not watch the two Matrix sequels, where we learn that the robots the resistance to operate.
The robots had to give humans who couldn’t tolerate the Matrix an outlet that could be controlled and monitored, and when the resistance got too big, they could be easily destroyed in one attack.
While their attacks are not as strong as the state’s, it can be significant: their use of labels like racist, homophobe, sexist, and so on have ruined lives of many individuals. Earlier I remarked that a method of government control is divide and conquer.
The reset button would allow the status quo to continue, unimpeded.
The current war between feminists and progressives against the manosphere and those with more conservative beliefs is by design.
Think of all the outlets that have attacked manosphere sites in the past couple of years: Buzzfeed, Gawker, ABC News, Washington Post, SPLC, Huffington Post. Manosphere information is offensive to these outlets because–as of now—it threatens the cultural elite’s integrity and utopian vision of having a degenerate society, but even that may be giving them too much credit. The masses must be distracted from knowing how they’re being screwed by pitting neighbor against neighbor.
The most brilliant tool to do this is the internet, an always-on interactive television with Twitter wars and viral articles and funny memes that keep the populace in a permanent state of distraction with every single insignificant issue under the sun that doesn’t even approach the state’s toes.
