The antiauthoritarian transformation of American society has resulted in profoundly destructive social changes because it released the fury of the secondary layer contained in armored people. An attempt by the superficial layer or facade to contain the destructiveness gave rise to the hypertrophy of the intellect as a defense against it. This was manifested in recent years by people’s pursuit of superficial distractions of every kind including relying on drugs of every kind to take away their pain and suffering, relying on the morality of political correctness to deal with the superficial symptoms of the secondary layer and a shift in the political mainstream to the far left of center, the socio-political red shift.
This shift to the left was politically legitimized in 2008 with the election of Barack Obama as President of the United States. Compared to the biophysical state of the American people in around 1960, there has been an alarming decline in their level of core contact. This is graphically manifested by the fact that today, in 2012, Obama has a good chance of being elected by the American people to a second term of office. If he had been running for president in 1960, he would have been easily seen by everyone, including Democrats as well as Republicans, as an undisguised communist and run out of town.
From a biophysical point of view, people who politically support Obama are functioning entirely from their superficial layer and have no contact with their biological core. They are liberal characters duped by the political mainstream into believing that he is a loyal American. How long can a society survive where people are out of touch to such a degree with their biological core?
