The political spectrum is a key metaphor that is used to prevent concensus so as to promote social control. The colours and names of the left/right parties are not consistent across the world, but the notion of "political opposition" is. Parties are opposed to one another. The political spectrum tends to narrow range of policies and issues towards a one-dimenstional "us v. them".

Cold WarThe official narrative had 2 diametrically opposed systems locked in combat with one another since soon after WW2. Each of the "superpowers" and its team of allies needed to outdo each other by creating ever more and deadlier weapons, creating a kind of perpetual war for perpetual peace, with the warring parties engaging mainly in covert/proxy wars. Deep state interests blossomed in the climate of fear and paranoia.
