What Constitutes A Spectrum?
The grey scale is likely the simplest example of a spectrum. Between the extremes of black and white, the grey spectrum slowly fades from a glaring white to the deepest black.
Many spectrums are invisible to the eye or senses. They can remain partially or completely unknown until discovered through accident or scientific study. The full spectrum of radio waves was, at one time, completely unknown. Their discovery made possible such technical advances as radios, cell phones and satellite communications. Messages no longer had to be sent down thousands of miles of copper wire. “Air” became the wires.
Usually, only a small portion of a spectrum is useful in our day to day activities. For example a thermometer, used for taking body temperature, only measures a small portion of the broader heat – cold spectrum. But to measure the temperature of molten steel, it requires an entirely different thermometer scale.
So, what relation does this have to the Political Spectrum?
During the research that resulted in The Political Spectrum: Freedom vs. Enslavement it was discovered that the current political spectrum represented only a small portion of a much wider spectrum. The extreme ends of the current spectrum are communism on the left and fascism on the right.
These two political systems were intensely opposed to each other in the early 20th century and millions of people were killed under the eyes of both of these political systems.
Perhaps because no one wanted to see a repeat of that era, these two political systems became anchors on the extreme political left and right, acting as “warning bells”. Both extremes are fearfully rejected and avoided. No one wants to be called a communist or a fascist, even if they adhere to the philosophy of one or the other.
But just as a body thermometer measures only a small scale of the cold-heat spectrum, the current political “thermometer” was found to include only a small portion of the entire political spectrum. It’s not that it was difficult to see; it was virtually hidden from view simply because “everybody knew” what it was, so no one bothered to look.
I did not “create” the political spectrum you will see in this book. Just like a rainbow, it only became completely visible under exact conditions. But once it became visible, it was something to behold. Just like when a child sees the rainbow for the first time, it was exciting and inspiring.
I soon realized however that I was the only one looking at it.
It is nearly impossible to discover something and not find yourself wanting to show it to another person. Not to merely share it, but to find out if they too can see it.
One acknowledgement of its validity came with a first place gold award from a publishing company’s writers contest. The judges had this to say:
“Before you step into any conversation about politics on a national or global level, you must first know the facts. David R. Young’s The Political Spectrum: Freedom vs. Enslavement is a unique book that delivers the information one needs to understand the left, the right and every party in between.” ~eLit Electronic Book Awards
Reader reviews on Amazon also acknowledged the increased clarity into the world of politics seen through the prism of this vital information.
This book will take you on a journey of discovery, step by step. You will see recognizable aspects of politics along the way. When you reach the end of the book you may find the real journey is just beginning for you.
Viewing the political landscape of our country will appear different, much clearer. You cannot watch a 3D movie without special glasses to bring it all into focus. Likewise, politics cannot be clearly viewed without fully understanding the political spectrum.
It will take you far less time to read this book than it took to discover and formulate this data. But as your guide, I am very glad to have you along. Enjoy the adventure.

A message to you as an American:
Americans – Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians and Independents remain at odds because they do not seem to have a common point to agree on as a basis to work together. Perhaps the old adage, divide and conquer is being employed within our country. If that is the case, this book may be the only hope we have.
This is not a book about pointing fingers and getting Democrats and Republicans to blame or hate each other. This book is likely to have the same effect on our county’s political divide as did 9/11. For a brief moment we stopped and acknowledge we were all, first and foremost, Americans. If you feel bringing Americans together again, but without another national disaster, read this book and pass it to that friend of yours across the isle. Find points that you do agree on. Ignore for now any points you disagree on.
Isn’t it time you discovered what has been obscured and hidden from you, concerning the political spectrum? With this knowledge, you can make up your own mind and will be certain about your position on The Political Spectrum: Freedom vs. Enslavement.
