What is 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 spectra are invisible to the eye or senses. They can remain partially or completely unknown until discovered through accident or scientific study. For example, 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. 

 It is important to understand that only a small portion of a spectrum is often used 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 does all of this have to do with 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. For instance, where would a government, based on Freedom and individual rights, fall on this scale? Certainly not between these two oppressive systems. 

 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. What had not been recognized were the two extremes that made up the full political spectrum.

 I didn’t “create” the political spectrum you will find within the pages of 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 very few people were looking at it. And I have to warn you, if you come with fixed ideas about your favorite system, you may not get the full benefit of understanding the political spectrum. There just might be something to learn here. But learning is often barriered by the notion that one already knows it all. 

And so this book was written to share this discovery.

 One acknowledgment 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. 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 — significantly 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.
