What about the infrared pill?

The problem with the ‘red pill’ analogy is that it deludes people who have seen through one of modernity’s lies into thinking that they have seen through all of modernity’s lies....
Feminism specifically and liberal equality generally are obviously, manifestly false; as manifest as a naked emperor parading down the street.  But there are much subtler errors in modernity.  Positivism, postmodernity, nominalism, materialism – these errors can creep into the thoughts of even the very vigilant who are actively working to keep them out.  I still pull these weeds from the garden of my own mind sometimes.

Your Say

Oh yay! Another modern philosopher has seen fit to recognize the brilliant simplicity of Aesop's Fables, Brothers Grimm, Tales of 1,001 Arabian nights.
Beats the sneakers off attempting to "explain" (ie)positivism, postmodernity, nominalism, materialism, et al, to "children", using contemporary public school "theory", or "social" media.
