Summary
When the narrator of 'Red Pill' arrives in the Berlin suburb of Wannsee after receiving a prestigious writing fellowship, he struggles to accomplish anything at all. Instead, he binge-watches 'Blue Lives', a violent cop show that he finds compelling in its bleak, Darwinian view of life. When the narrator meets Anton, the creator of 'Blue Lives', he begins to believe that Anton is "red-pilling" his viewers - turning them toward an ugly, alt-rightish worldview - ultimately forcing the narrator to wonder if he is losing his mind
