The Real World Andrew Tate is an online training program taught by the self-styled “Morpheus,” who compares his academy to the Matrix, and claims that those who join it will become free from the shackles of society. Tate’s students, referred to as “Morpheusians,” pay up to tens of thousands of dollars for his online classes and in-person seminars.
The class material aims to teach students everything from basic money-making strategies, to building multi-million dollar empires, and even how to run a successful sex ring. Students learn from a roster of professors, who are mostly wealthy millionaires themselves and have extensive teaching experience. Many of these teachers are also members of Tate’s community, and their presence gives students an additional support system.
Andrew Tate: Beyond the Social Media Persona
In the course of their work, the professors help students with their personal lives as well. One of these is a fitness instructor, who is paid to help the students achieve their goals in the gym, both physically and mentally. Other instructors are businessmen, investors and entrepreneurs who have created their own empires.
In a world of accelerating economic inequality, job insecurity is widespread and a major factor behind the rise of the freelance economy. As a result, more people than ever are looking to make extra cash. For some, the hope is to be able to afford medical bills or pay rent, but for others it is to live a comfortable life. In their quest for financial freedom, some are drawn to the misogynist influencers like Tate.
