Why Andrew Tate & The Red Pill Seem Irresistible to So Many Men (2023)


Male loneliness has been on the rise for the last several decades. With changing gender roles and men lost on how to live up to classical ideas of masculinities, Andrew Tate and The Red Pill Grift fill the vacuum to offer solutions to lonely young men.

Unfortunately, these solutions are profoundly problematic and can lead young men down a dark road. This video seeks to show this descent into the manosphere and explain how men become more radicalized as they become indoctrinated into The Red Pill ideology and even fall into the Black Pill. This video essay is not to justify misogynist views but to generate understanding for young men trapped in these ideologies in order to decipher what about Andrew Tate and the Red Pill resonates with them in service of making a new more, healthy manosphere. - Passionate Rebellion

Hi there.

I bet you've seen some great "films for action" that aren't in our library yet. 

Why not add that documentary or video directly to our library? Half of our best content was added by members. Submissions just need to be non-fiction, embeddable (like from Youtube or Vimeo), and related to activism or changing the world in some way. 

Here are some more tips on adding videos. We'd love you to become a regular contributor!
