First Tragedy, Then Farce

Populism is ultimately sustained by the frustrated exasperation of ordinary people, by the cry "I don't know what's going on, but I've just had enough of it! It cannot go on! It must stop!"

  2. Maybe because this isn't Madison or Jefferson's America anymore. And to progressives, they were just racist slavers.
