Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Say what?

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

In the US South the things that unite 'populism' these days are racism, homophobia and gynophobia - in addition to xenophobia. Prior to WWI and during the '30s there was some more left-wing populism focused on economic oppression and trying to unite races, religions and genders. After WWI in the US all left wing populism was deliberately tied to World Wide
Communism, first by the Red Scare then by J Edgar. But you knew that.
