“that you are a slave Neo, like everyone else you were born into bondage; born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch, a prison for your mind.”
Unlike Neo, not everyone chooses the red pill. Everyone at some point, I believe, is confronted with a potentially life changing situation but the majority of people will gladly swallow that blue pill and go back to their comfortable, or so they must believe, existence. There are many motivations or excuses for this and all are equally valid, I have too much to lose, I don’t know what may be around the corner or most commonly, I have responsibilities.
I understand this. Taking the blue pill is easier, taking the red pill is much harder and demands so much more of you, but sometimes situations dictate and you really don’t have any blue pill to take. You must take the red pill or perish, the option of return is gone.
I took the red pill.
Given the same choice again would I choose the blue pill?
No, once you burn bridges you can quite literally never go back over them.
Non, je ne regrette rien.
