    I think this red/blue pill problem applies to politics. Imagine there is a repressive red political party who will kill all non-members, but they need a majority to come to power. You don’t even have to share their values, you just have to become a member to be spared when they start killing.

    I guess in the real world the vote is anonymous though, so you wouldn’t actually have to vote for them, just join the party to be spared… But still, is it really a good idea to side with this red team, just to guarantee your own survival?
