The Blue Pill is the path of conformity with society's expectations; the state of being unaware of the problems engendered by society. The term is used in contrast to the Red Pill of awakening and acknowledgement and has its origins in the 1999 film The Matrix.

Although "Blue Pill" is used in a derogatory way by Red Pillers to refer to those who deliberately choose to deny uncomfortable truth, some who oppose the Red Pill are reclaiming the term as their own. For example, /r/TheBluePill is a subreddit devoted to critiquing (or, more commonly, mocking) The Red Pill.[1]
