The source of a politician’s popularity comes from the people. A question that is not asked is, how can an individual like Barack Obama who has performed so poorly as President of The United States in almost every area enjoy the enormous popularity that he has to the point that he actually has a good chance of being reelected to a second term in office?
In order to answer this question, it must first be known from which layer of their bio-psychic structure does people’s attraction to Obama originate, the superficial layer or facade, the destructive middle layer,or from the biological core. Most Blacks (98%) voted for Obama in 2008. Many of them did so because they identified with him as being Black. For them, only Obama’s blackness, not his political thinking, was the primary distinguishing feature that mattered. This group was attracted to Obama from the superficial layer of their bio-psychic structure.
With the anti-authoritarian transformation of society, there was a breakthrough of the emotional plague and a shift to the left of the political mainstream as leftist ideology became the dominant force driving socio-political activity in the West. As a result, many diverse groups of all classes of people including White as well as Black leftist ideologues and particularly those in the media as well as others who somehow believed that the government should take care of them, became swept up in a political movement that ran on a vague platform of ”change” led by savior-candidate Obama. A recent Washington Post/ABC poll shows by a 2-to-1 ratio that the president is more “friendly and likable” than Mitt Romney. These group’s attraction to Obama originate from the superficial and from the powerful destructive middle layers of their bio-psychic structure.
Thus, Obama and most if not all of his supporters have contact with each other through their superficial and middle layers. In today’s anti-authoritarian society, the biological core of human beings has been all but obliterated from social life leaving only the superficial and destructive middle layers to determine social processes. How long can a society last that has absolutely no undistorted contact with the biological core functions of work and love that sustain it?
