Red Pilling – A General Guide to Enlightening People by Centipede Nation
Chapter 2: The Socratic Method & The Aristotelian Triad
Dialectic was the weapon of choice for Socrates, and thus it’s widely known as “The Socratic Method”. It’s a method of critical dialoguing, where the emphasis is placed on the skillful use of probing questions in order to discover objective truths.
In Aristotle’s rhetorical appeals, our perception of a speaker or writer’s character influences how believable or convincing we find what that person has to say. We are naturally more likely to be persuaded by a person who, we think, has personal warmth, consideration of others, a good mind and solid learning.
Red pills can only be taken by choice. By definition, it means that somebody has chosen to see the ugly truth rather than believe comfortable lies.
Tactics & Approach Of The Socratic Method
As a tactic, Socratic questioning is a highly disciplined process.
A Socratic Questioner Should:
- Keep the discussion focused.
- Keep the discussion intellectually responsible.
- Stimulate the discussion with probing questions.
- Periodically summarizes what has and what had not been dealt with and/or resolved.
- Draw as many students as possible into the discussion.
The Socratic questioner acts as the logical equivalent of the inner critical voice which the mind develops when it develops critical thinking abilities.

The Aristotelian Triad (Rhetorical Appeals)
Within the Aristotelian Triad, the goal of argumentative writing is to persuade your audience that your ideas are more valid than everyone else’s. Aristotle divided the means of persuasion – or appeals – into 3 categories; Ethos, Pathos, Logos.
Ethos is an appeal to ethics that depends on credibility and expertise as persuasive techniques.
Use your expertise, years of knowing someone, or find popular figures that your subject respects.
“My years as a Marine taught me….
Ethos (Ethics/Credibility) Messages:
- Believability, Qualifications, Character
- Appropriate Tone/ Context
- Accountable & Transparent
Pathos is an appeal using emotion that creates an emotional response to convince the audience.
Pull hard on their heart strings.
“They’re recording the private lives of our children….
Pathos (Emotion) Messages:
- Emotional Narratives
- Examples Which Bring Out Emotion
- Vibrant Descriptions
- Empathy Generating
Logos is an appeal to logic that depends on logic and facts to persuade the audience.
Give them facts that are undeniable and easy to search for.
“More than one peer-reviewed study have said….
Logos (Logic) Messages:
- Factual Data/Statistics
- Appeal to the Mind/Intellect
- Logical Conclusion By Citing Authority
- Literal And Historical Analogies
The Centipede Method
Plant a seed and watch it grow
People don’t need preaching to. That’s the problem. Those who know a lot (have a lot of background info) tend to tell it all and overwhelm. Just plant a seed and back away (ask a question that gets them thinking). Do other things. Let them have a chance to process that and work it out in their mind. Ask a different question about the topic (seed you planted), see how they answer.
You are watering that seed, and it grows both downward (into the subconscious) and upwards (towards the conscious).
Go away and do other things. Plant the seed, come back to it later, but lead them, coax them, gently gently, softly softly.
Some people take a long time to process things – I have family members who are just now “getting” something I said to them years ago, and they forgot I was the one who brought it up.
“Hey did you know about X?”
I just smile and nod.
