red pill, black pill

The most important symbol of the “manosphere” are two pills: a red and a black one. They refer to a scene from Matrix, in which the main character has to decide between two pills – and thus for one truth. 

The photograph shows a carefully laid out flower bed. It is reminiscent of the kind of flowerbeds that represent local emblems at entrances to german villages.
