    I never realized how strong the Blue Pill was...

    ...until my father tried to convince me how financially beneficial his third marriage was. This is insanity especially considering how her two snowflake daughters will surely go to whatever college they want to. And after that she wants to uproot their whole life and move to Belize and apparently live happily ever after. How can you watch someone you care about walk the path to destruction a second time? How do you deal with watching them throw away a life some men would dream about having? How can you just watch them throw it away on the same old trap you've seen them walk into before? How do you deal with it over and over and over and over again? I'm really having trouble understanding how you can present stats and facts and circumstances and they look at you like you're insane?! I don't know maybe I just need some community strength or something; but I literally heard my father, who supposedly prides himself on teaching me to question everything and find the truth, tell me today "that's enough truth for tonight", and that screwed me up more than I am already. I'm just having a hard time understanding this.

    There is a good chance you may never understand it. Your father telling you "that's enough truth for tonight" is trying to teach
    you to search for yourself first and go your own way.

    In a way, he is asking you a question without asking it directly. "What is your truth"?

    Just my take, for what it's worth.
    Temet Nosce and good luck.

    I appreciate this and I never thought of it that way. I just never saw anything he ever said as subjective. He may mean some thing subjective now but shifting that paradigm with regards to what he says is just something that will take time to get used to. I would also look to try to find the cause of this sudden willingness in him to be subjective when in the past he was authoritarian at best. I will definitely investigate further.

    Non so blind as those that will not see, problem you have is they hold the belief that their situation is 'different' and you just don't understand.

    You can't teach other unless the others are ready to learn, thats is why many MGTOW's start his own way after a divorce or some other nasty incident, the red pill is not a easy one, you must first reject years and years of indoctrination and questioning what is really good and what is bad, most people will never try to understand something outside what everyone believes and even with a open mind is hard. Now you must ask yourself, do yo need to save your father for yourself or for him? sure, maybe you know the truth but the truth is not for everyone, most people can't handle the truth and if you try force the red pill then you will be rejected like when an crazy feminist try to shame us and make us blue pill again, if you want to help him then find the right moment.
    My english is not the best, sorry if i made some mystake or sound rude.

    The teacher is ready, the moment the student truly wishes to learn.

    A cocktail of beliefs, expectations and culture will shape a person's reality. When that reality is challenged by an incongruity you have the option to shift beliefs or stick with what you know. I believe most people are so invested in what they "know" that they are completely blind to alternatives, especially if doing something different goes against anything considered a status quo. My favorite example is what happened to Blockbuster Video. They were given the opportunity buy the future and decided against it.

    Thanks for that.

    To be the exception that tests the rule requires self mastery and patience, a trait found only among those going their own way.
    This is what deceives women into their current herd mentality and prevents them from becoming truly desirable and
    unique. Women cannot favor their own uniqueness and quality over the approval of a social group.

    I'm only trying to summarize what I believe the original intent toward which this thread was driving.
    My previous attempts to expound any further resulted in self canceled comments so far.
    To date, this is the best I've got.

    Pretty good stuff there, T3G.
