Populism – Six remarks on an alternative way of exercising democratic rule

 

[Translated from Gegenstandpunkt: Politische Vierteljahreszeitschrift 4-2019, Gegenstandpunkt Verlag, Munich]

 

I. A practice and a reproach with a long democratic tradition

 

II. Deliberately departing from established politics in the name of the beloved people

 

III. Intensifying the traditional discontent of democratically elected rulers with the provisions of the constitutional state

 

IV. Radically enlisting the people as a service to their identity — or: why ‘right-wing populism’ is a redundant term

 

V. The contradictory development of globalized competition into a struggle for national sovereignty

 

VI. The bill for a social-democratic success story: the working class has joined the nation — ready at all times for an alternative, consequent nationalism
