Populism has re-ignited back where it started over one hundred years ago, in the heartland, now in states like Wisconsin and Indiana.
Leo Gerard, international president of the United Steelworkers. said that corporate America started a war on unions. “We’re going to kick their ass,” Gerard said.
The Populist Party of the 1890’s was Midwest farmers who banded together because they were losing their farms to thieving banks and being gouged by predatory crop speculators.
What were seeing now is much more populist than it is left vs. right. Good. Because populism aims at the right target, the elites who are plundering the country, not at each other.
