It is now abundantly clear that the Western world is in the midst of an expansive, multifaceted populist revolt. The ideological, institutional and cultural achievements of the Left in recent decades are now at risk of implosion. The return of the right to the political discourse in force and uncertainty around security and economics are shifting the tectonic plates that have underpinned the West since the 1980s. The Left’s victory in the culture wars led it to overreach, and the consequences of this overreach are now plain to see. The populist revolt in the Western world can be traced back to the dawn of this millennium and is far from over. What started as a flicker in France and the Netherlands now threatens to engulf Europe and the West in populist flames.
