Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"Non-political" means "fascist".

It was characteristic of fascist regimes [and spiring fascist movements] in the 1930's (and later) to criticize "party politics". If the idea becomes popular it undermines the political system.

Another authoritarian populist trait is to dissociate politics from society in rhetoric. Society is the point of politics.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
