A few accurate and a great many inaccurate things have been said about Barack Obama's advovacy of a "new kind of politics." Especially amongst the media, this has been treated as "why can't we all get along" vapidity, a bland notion that people shouldn't be mean to each other.
The truth is that what he is advocating is far more subversive and dangerous to the status quo.
Insight into just how Obama intends to transform our politics and policy comes from Thomas S. (T.S.) Kuhn's seminal work, The Structure of Scientific Revolutions.
