Donald Trump's election defeat isn't the only sign that the populist wave is fading.

"In Europe, Dutch far-right leader Thierry Baudet resigned this week amid allegations of antisemitism in his party, leaving it rudderless going into national elections in March. The U.K.'s Brexit-fueled divisive influence on the EU is about to end on Dec. 31, with or without a trade deal. Brussels is meanwhile reaching out to U.S. President-elect Joe Biden to start anew.

All this may just be a temporary reprieve for liberal values. But for now it's 25 against two: Poland and Hungary are increasingly isolated, and the EU surely feels emboldened to tough it out."

The irony of Conservatism doing a worse job surviving a pandemic than Socialism is really something to behold.

How are these Self-Made Men getting COVID-19? They can literally only get it from being social, from being around other people.

It's kind of interesting that most of the world understands what are liberal values and what are rwing populist values... so much so that it is framed as liberal vs populist, not rwing populist, because those people are known not to be the same as liberal populists.

Recounts are giving Biden more votes in state after state they've demanded/paid for recounts.

Donald Trump grifted his supporters out of $3,000,000 to give Joe Biden 132 more votes in Wisconsin.

I watched the movie "Minions" last night, of a race of sorta intelligent beings who had one overriding mandate, to serve the worst human being in the world. It was a comedy, but during it I couldn't help but replace the word "minion" with the words "Republican Party", for Republicans seem genetically driven to find a truly terrible person and then work like hell to make them boss.
Nixon, Reagan, George W. Bush, Trump...what comes next, President Louis Gohmert?

Democracy is the opposite of minionville, it is for brave people who are wiling to listen and learn from their fellow humans, and to elevate those who lead sterling lives. Public education is their greatest work. Of course the Republican Party does what it can to destroy educating the poor and the powerless.

I wouldn't say Socialism - I would a say Liberals with Social Protection Policies. Conservatives have shown time and again it is all about the "me" - especially during this pandemic. They lambaste Liberals about the base having their hands out. Turns out the Conservative base is the same... Their just too damned stupid to realize what is in the best interest of all is social protections. This includes the best interest of Capitalism.
