The socio-political redshift is the deviation to the far left of center in the current mainstream of socio-political thought. It was brought about because of the anti-authoritarian transformation of American society which began around 1960 and it was responsible for the political polarization between the left and the right and the generalized cultural degradation in society.
It is first necessary to recognize the existence of the socio-political red shift before any sense can be made of a politician’s true identity and mode of operation. Because of this redshift to the left of center, any moderate politician that is not part and parcel of the mainstream of political thinking is automatically identified as a product of the political far right while anyone belonging on the political left, no matter how far to the left he belongs, is considered to be a political moderate. This is why Barack Obama who belongs to the extreme left of center is considered by many Americans to be a moderate liberal when, in fact, he actually functions as a pseudo-liberal/communist character. This segment of the population is totally taken in by his pseudo-liberal facade.
Part of the problem is that people think only in terms of what political party a politician belongs to and not in terms of their socio-political character structure that determines their political ideas. The Democratic Party in America was successfully infiltrated and taken over by hard core communist characters during the 1960s at the time that the socio-political red shift was happening. This major event in the history of American politics was the essence of the redshift, an event that went almost completely unnoticed by everyone including, in particular, the younger generation living today, most of whom grew up after the anti-authoritarian transformation and therefore are not aware that a major political shift to the left of center has really happened. For them, the current socio-political mainstream is actually believed to be the true political center. This generation of confused idealistic young people are highly susceptible to the plague’s infectiveness. They are in danger of being easily swept up by the political rhetoric of the ” mainstream” extreme left. The public’s high level of support for government sponsored health care, Obamacare, is one example of people’s dependency on the state for their care and a symptom of the political redshift.
