WHO ARE WE?
The mission of the Expo and the University is to bring together world-class experts to set the record straight on fake narratives, fake history, and fake news. In other words, we are here to dispel the illusions that often shroud the most important aspects of our lives.
Red Pill Expo and Red Pill University are part of what is called Project Outreach, an endeavor by Freedom Force International to create a global coalition in support of individualism over collectivism as the essential cornerstone of liberty and human dignity. This is the ideological gyroscope that forges our unity and guides our efforts.
One of the most remarkable features of Red Pill Expo is that it gives voice to a wide variety of viewpoints, which means that agreement on all topics is neither required nor expected. That is a natural consequence of the red-pill theme, which is about discovering truths and dispelling illusions. If we all held the same opinions and closed our minds to contrary information, discovery of new truths would be impossible. As Scottish Baron Thomas Dewar put it: “Minds are like parachutes. They only function when open.”
Most of us have “taken the red pill” at one time or another, which means we have changed our views about something important in our lives. That could not have happened without access to information that often is said to be controversial. That is why Red Pill Expo does not attempt to avoid controversy or censor any ideas advanced by speakers, exhibitors, or sponsors. However, tolerance and open-mindedness is not the same as acceptance. Please be aware that the views expressed by attendees, exhibitors, or speakers do not necessarily reflect the views of the Expo management. Our job is to provide a platform for alternate views of reality. It is up to each of us to decide based on our own experience and judgment.
NO TOPICS ARE CENSORED
At Red Pill Expo, no topics are barred, but controversial issues on which emotions run high often need special care to insure that the process remains dignified and factual. When there is strong public interest in such issues, we attempt to arrange a formal debate between advocates of both positions, but with agreement that they will not interrupt the other or resort to name calling or ad hominem attacks. Questions relating to conflicts of interest are appropriate, but accusations regarding the character of those with opposing views are forbidden by our Rules of Conduct.
At first glance, it may appear that the Red Pill project is all talk and no action but, quite the opposite is true. The problem is that most people have no perception of the kind of action we are undertaking. They think only in terms of circulating petitions, organizing public demonstrations, raising money for billboards, and similar activities that are highly visible to the public. They have not studied the nature of the Council on Foreign Relations, The Bilderberg Group, the Trilateral Commission, or the World Economic Forum — all of which on the surface appear to be just people talking. In truth, however, these are the entities that are the epicenter of the collectivist and globalist agendas.
None of them are “activist” organizations. In fact, they are not organizations at all. They are coalitions of leaders and influencers from many different organizations who come together to become clear on their mutual goals and strategies. They network, form personal bonds, and then carry their mutual agenda to the organizations in which they have influence.
Casual observers are dumbfounded by the fact that so many politicians, media personalities, leaders of educational institutions, corporations, labor unions, and charitable institutions all move in unison in support of totalitarianism. That is because they fail to appreciate the fact that these influencers meet frequently at conferences that serve the same function for their collectivist agenda as Red Pill University and Red Pill Expos are serving for the freedom agenda.
We do not have hierarchical leadership with directors at the top, managers in the middle and rank-and-file members at the bottom. No one has authority to issue directives or to compel action. We must lead by persuasion and example, not authority. Therefore, we also are not an organization in the traditional sense but a coalition of like -minded individuals who are influencers in other organizations that are focused on a broad spectrum of issues, all of which impact our way of life and the future of humanity. Each of these are expected to have their own issues, goals, style and leadership. Our unique role is to be an ideological gyroscope so all these diverse individuals and organizations can come together, network, form personal bonds, and unite behind our own mutual goals and strategies.
After only six years of endeavor, it is gratifying to witness that the Red Pill Project is serving that objective very well. Those who think it is just a lot of talk have much to learn about the dynamics of the war in which we are engaged.
RULES OF CONDUCT
Nonconformity of opinion is one thing; bad behavior is another. The Expo has rules of conduct that apply to all who participate. The following conduct is not allowed: (1) abusive language or activity, (2) physical aggression, (3) drunkenness, (4) sounds that interfere with the comfort or activities of others, (5) signage, recordings, literature, or commentary that (a) denigrate someone’s race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, culture, gender, education, economic status, or life style, or (b) promotes the services or products of any person or group that is not a Red Pill exhibitor, sponsor, or speaker. The Expo Chairman will be the judge of whether these rules have been followed. Willful and continuing violation will be cause for expulsion. We do not expect any of these issues to arise during the event but, if they do, this policy will apply.
Thank you for attending. Enjoy. Learn. Be transformed!
