Using the proverbial "rabbit-hole" as an analogy, once a person is below the surface they have no frame of reference to determine how deeply they've gone, or how far they've traveled horizontally from where they began. If 'normal functioning adult' is the reference point, and concepts such as up/down, left/right, suddenly lose meaning they are lost in a maze of their own making. It is only when they eventually tunnel out of the side of a hill into the light of day when they realize how far they've traveled from where they began. Unfortunately though, these people are the exception rather than the rule. Many never tunnel out of the side of a hill, but rather keep going deeper and deeper until the tunnel eventually collapses on them.

Since when is getting "redpilled" (to the truth) a bad thing?
Moving to the center is now redpilling?
1. They come up with some thought. 2. They make a video and express the thought as an opinion 3. They get attention based on this opinion 4. They progressively become that opinion, because it gives them the attention they so desperately crave. The problem is, there's no off-ramp, no reality check, once this cycle begins. Because of the sheer numbers of people in the audience, billions even, the chances of finding someone to agree and validate virtually any crazy thought is almost a certainty. With the tools available to selectively include, or exclude, certain elements of their audience they can ensure they get a non-stop stream of validations and block out any dissenting views. Their fantasy becomes reality. And, they make it so.
