History Repeating: Why Populists Rise and Governments Fall by Sam Wilkin

Most of the time, politics is boring. In most countries, the Average Joe rules. Extremists of the left and right can gnash their teeth but serious politicians know they desert the centre ground at their peril. Its the iron law of electoral politics.

That is, in normal times.

What about times when the centre cant hold, when the extremists take back control and set about making their country great again?

At such moments, the best guide to the future is the past. Political chaos might be scary but it isnt all that chaotic. In fact, as risk analyst Sam Wilkin reveals in History Repeating, it has hidden rules.

Beneath the noise and confusion of history, from Lenin and Khomeini to Trump and Brexit, there are patterns. The same drama plays out again and again, with minor variations. It isnt the story you think you know. It contains surprises and profound mysteries. But once you have seen the inner logic of the past centurys political disasters, you might just be ready to face the interesting times to come.

Today, we have a big picture conversation about populism — that thing that seems to be taking over the world, whether we are talking about Donald Trump, Brexit, Bolsonaro in Brazil or Duterte in the Philippines. But, what is populism? Why do people vote for populists? Besides unhelpful explanations that are unhelpful like everyone is insane , how can we better understand this phenomenon? Today we take our understanding of populism — and as a consequence, our world — up several notches. My guest is Sam Wilkin. Sam is a political risk expert, an author and a speaker.
