A social situation that arises when an individual moves to a new location they have not previously lived in and finds that the political climate from where they previously lived and the political culture of the new area they moved into are completely different from each other. Some issues that accompany this situation include anxiety, discomfort, identity conflicts, homesickness, confusion, frustration, anger, language barriers, generational differences in terms of views on various political topics, and differences in terms of where, when, and how people in that area think about and discuss politics.
Kailani: What’s wrong with that guy in corner? He seemed to be very anxious when I was speaking to him about politics and does not seem to be very mindful of his tone when speaking about his views.

Sarah: I think he moved here three to four weeks ago; he is probably suffering from political culture shock. He is probably struggling to get used to the political climate around, which it may take him a while to get used to it.

Kailani: I see.
