“Drinking the Kool-Aid” is a metaphor used in the United States that means to become an unquestioning believer in some ideology, or to accept an argument or philosophy wholeheartedly or blindly without critical examination. The phrase can sometimes have a negative connotation, or can be used ironically. The basis of the term is a reference to the November 1978 Jonestown Massacre, where members of the Peoples Temple were said to have committed suicide by drinking a ‘Kool-Aid’-like drink laced with cyanide” (Wikipedia).
