Watching the second plane crash into the tower on TV in 2001 woke me up. I was already anti-government and anti-authoritarian, but this event immediately red pilled me. My Dad and I were both in disbelief, and thought they were trying to start WW3. We made preparations to go to Mexico to avoid the draft we thought was coming. Turns out they didn't want a world war, they just wanted a bunch of smaller wars all over the world and a total tyrannical surveillance state.
