The Red Pill Reading List
— A reality check —
If you read these, your eyes will open & your thinking will change.

Morpheus: “The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us, even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window, or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, or when you go to church, or when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes, to blind you from the truth.”

Neo: “What truth?”

Morpheus: “That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else, you were born into bondage, born inside a prison that you cannot smell, taste, or touch. A prison for your mind. Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself. This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back.”

    I read Silent Spring when I was 18 years old and discovered a heroine, a kindred spirit.


    • Guess I’m a late bloomer, I didn’t read it until I was in my 50’s – but like the Buddhist proverb says, “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” – maybe by then I was ready to pay attention?
      I just finished reading “Our Stolen Future” by Theo Colborn, Dianne Dumanoski, and John Peterson Myers
      It’s almost like a followup to Silent Spring but with all the added depth that comes of years of thought & research.
      When I have time, I’ll add it to the list.

        I suspect I must have crossed the path of a very thoughtful college professor at the time, or an older-and-way-wiser-than-me environmentalist. I am often “turned on” to books through conversations, now even online, noting connections I make that this person seems to wonder, question, think, and seek. Carson came along with my Vonnegut phase—I have no idea what connection, if any, I made at the time. It may have strictly been intellectual, political, or going-against-the-grain admiration. It’ll be great just to check your recommended reading list from time to time. I’ll add “Our Stolen Future” to my BookMooch wish list. Many, many thanks.
