Red pill libertarianism
Red pill libertarianism is the intersection between the red pill and libertarianism. Red pill libertarians believe in all the typical libertarian ideas (smaller government, lower taxes, more freedom, etc.) and use red pill theory to support arguments for why, for example, marriage should be treated as a contract that may include penalties for breach.
Red pill libertarianism overlaps somewhat with libertarian brutalism, as both are antifeminist. Red pill libertarian blogs such as Republitarian tend to quickly go defunct as their owners come under attack from feminists.
As distinct from the "libertarian red pill"
"Red pill" can be used as a metaphor referring to those who are woke with regard to any issue, so therefore the "libertarian red pill" sometimes refers to learning the truth about the destructive and immoral nature of statism. In particular, Murray Rothbard's teaching is sometimes referred to as a red pill. Libertarians sometimes argue that the idea of a sudden red pill awakening is simplistic anyway, when used to describe a change in one's political philosophy, which more likely happened over years. It has also been noted that precursors to the red pill metaphor were the naked emperor and the man behind the curtain.
- "The Libertarian Red Pill".
The reason it’s called the libertarian red pill is because, as the Manosphere has shown, there are many kinds of red pills regarding truth on a specific topic. This is just one. If you want to know the truth about other things, you’ll have to take the necessary pills. We’re only unplugging you from one type of Matrix you are living in unknowingly. This is troubling for many who join the liberty movement. For some, this pill is too bitter to swallow because, pardon the expression, it’s not “thick” enough to answer other questions pertinent to the rest of life. The debate over what libertarianism is and isn’t, is really a struggle between those who are at peace with the truth the NAP offers and those who still cling to preconceived notions they developed prior to their unplugging. They don’t just want the truth; they want the comfort and security of a belief system that addresses social, moral, cultural, and religious questions their previous political ideologies handled and which the state is more than happy to comply with. They want The Vision that libertarianism can’t and won’t create by itself.
