Re: What is Populism?

Well I was way off. I thought populism was the talk about the real estate bubble popping.

Re: What is Populism?

The Left is attempting to rally on a global basis against the rise of populism and the increasing influence of the Right.

The Global Left Has a Plan to Combat Populism

7 March 13, 2017 12:07 PM EST

By Leonid Bershidsky

The man who would depose Angela Merkel as German chancellor also has a global plan: To reverse the onslaught of nationalism and populism.

Martin Schulz, the Social Democrat (SPD) candidate for the chancellorship, laid out that vision in Berlin on Monday, speaking to comrades from the Progressive Alliance, an international group uniting socialist parties that is a testament to Germany's growing global political influence. Formed in 2013 as the SPD's brainchild, it includes the major European socialist parties as well as political forces from faraway lands, such as India's National Congress and the U.S. Democrats. Even Robby Mook, Hillary Clinton's former campaign manager, made an appearance this year to talk about politics in the post-truth era.

Angela Merkel

The Berlin convention of the alliance was all about plotting a counterattack against the far right forces. While center-right parties have appeared too technocratic and out of touch, the left didn't have that problem, Schulz and the other assembled socialists declared. But they needed to rally behind big ideas in order to gain traction.

"The currently predominant pessimism about change and progress comes from years of politics based on an alleged lack of alternatives -- and thus consolidates existing power structures," said a report prepared for the Alliance conference by an international group backed by German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel and former World Trade Organization director general Pascal Lamy. "Politics needs the intellectual backbone, but also the freedom, to tackle long-term projects."

Schulz's speech on Monday was all about fixing globalization. Nationalism and protectionism wouldn't work, he argued, because "no wall can ever be high enough to protect us permanently from global problems." So socialists must force business to correct the social consequences of globalization. "We need accountability and transparency obligations for companies along the supply chains, the extension of social security systems, and the introduction of wages that can guarantee a standard of living," Schulz said.

The socialists put the blame for the rise of nationalist populism on "neoliberals" whose economic orthodoxy gripped the world when many people thought history was ending. It was these unabashed capitalists who led the world to its current shaky state, creating the refugee problem with "wrong political decisions, environmental changes, failing states, destroyed production conditions and human livelihoods, and conflicts," the Progressive Alliance report said. All that happened because the world was being governed in the interests of big business, which grew at the expense of everyone else:

Economic orthodoxy is the root cause?

Just the usual socialist claptrap blaming the world's woes on government intervention in the market place benefitting corporate interests at the expense of the worker ie the redirection of wealth away from producers to looters. Their solution? Government intervention in the market place designed to benefit the worker at the expense of corporations ie the redirection of wealth away from producers to looters.

Both sides continue to blame capitalism for the ills of the world, rather than the real culprit - central planning and the abuse of State powers for political and social gain. That's because both sides don't have a grasp of what capitalism stands for and what it has enabled humanity to achieve and look toward government as a tool for enhancing their own values as opposed to voluntarism. My suggestion for viewers in the meantime is just to change channels for now, the same program has been running for decades, the actors have changed but the script remains the same. hmm

Tune back in when the wankers have something new to say.
