What is the Whitepill?
The Whitepill is a system or ideology regarding how to be happy. It works as a guide, especially for those suffering in our current society who feel their lives are empty and lack meaning or purpose.
It is called Whitepill due to the fact these ideas can be ‘swallowed’, changing your perspective on things. For a thorough explanation click here.
Why is the Whitepill for those depressed or living empty lives?
There already are many refined ideologies or systems out there to lead a ‘good’ life (religion in general, Buddhism, Stoicism, Taoism, Confucianism, etc), but they all require extreme changes for a person to adapt, especially for the average person living in the 21st century. We live in a society where depression is skyrocketing, suicides increase every year, a top elite keeps stealing the resources of our world – it is not easy to find willpower to recreate a lifestyle. Thus, the Whitepill attempts to be pragmatic instead of idealistic, giving concrete and simple examples of things to attempt in order to achieve joy in life.
Why white specifically?
White is created in additive color theory by mixing the primary colors (red, green and blue, which together form all others), thus white is metaphorically the unification of information from the Bluepill, Redpill, Blackpill, etc.
