Populism rises again
ポピュリズムの再来

In the post-truth world of 2016, the day of the demagogue arrived. President Duterte played Dirty Harry in the Philippines. A pussy-grabbing, fact-denying, tax-shirking billionaire got elected US president. Smirking Brexiteers lied through their teeth and had their way. Authoritarian populists have stoked anger and division, and exposed faultlines in democracy. In this edition we ask, what is the appeal of the appalling? And is a progressive populism the answer?


2016年のポスト真実の世界に、扇動政治家が登場した。フィリピンのダーティー・ハリーを演じるドゥテルテ大統領。米国では、女性器わしづかみ発言をし、事実をねじ曲げ、納税回避した億万長者が大統領に就任した。あざけるような笑いを浮かべてしらじらしいうそをつき、望みを遂げたのは英国のEU(欧州連合)離脱支持者たちだ。専制主義的ポピュリストたちは、怒りの火に油を注ぎ、分断を深め、民主主義における争点を浮き彫りにする。このおぞましい状況は、何を訴えかけているのか。進歩主義的ポピュリズムは、解決策になるのだろうか。
