The “populist surge” in Europe has far from peaked and is the most significant change to the European order since the end of the Cold War, a new report by former British left-wing Prime Minister Tony Blair’s own think tank has claimed.
Assessing what the report identifies as a “populist threat” as a means to defeat it and “renew the centre”, the globalist Institute for Global Change document questions widely-held assumptions that right-populist politics is an “interlude”, or blip in history which “optimistic” observers believe will burn out.
If populism is a rejection of un-elected elites — and I think it is — then let’s have at it.
Populism is a political approach that seeks to disrupt the existing social order by solidifying and mobilizing the animosity of the “commoner” or “the people” against “privileged elites” and the “establishment”. Populists can fall anywhere on the traditional left–right political spectrum of politics, and often portray both bourgeois capitalists and socialist organizers as unfairly dominating the political sphere.
I support popular, democratic action which will undo some of the obviously bad policies of the last few decades: massive debts to support a welfare state, the influence of globalist non-governmental organizations and unlimited immigration.
Yes, there are overlapping influences. While the anti-illegal immigration groups share some ideas with out and out racists — we are not them. We will not let them find power. We are not their ideological cousins; we are their enemies.
I support a worldwide pendulum swing that takes back the influence of the folks who would erase borders, and in doing so eliminate nations in favor of a global village. That village contains too many people who want to cut my throat, not to mention the obvious village idiots.
