It depends on who you ask. If you look it up in the dictionary, it says “Support for the concerns of ordinary people” and “the quality of appealing to or being aimed at ordinary people”. If you ask the BBC news, they say: In political science, populism is the idea that society is separated into two groups at odds with one another – “the pure people” and “the corrupt elite”. The Oxford dictionary states it as: “a political approach that strives to appeal to ordinary people who feel that their concerns are disregarded by established elite”. Or a better definition is: a political approach that strives to appeal to ordinary people who feel that their concerns are disregarded and under threat, caused and forced by established elite
It’s really sad what’s going on in the world and if you read a newspaper, Internet or watch on TV, you might be wondering what’s going on!? We going here on a small journey throughout the world and see where it will lead us, not? But I’m not only showing you what’s in the newspapers, but beyond and behind it as well, till all the gory details.
Each day there are multiple terror attacks, causing many to die and are maimed for life. Streams of refugees are headed to Europe from Africa and the Middle East. Climate changes all over the world are getting more dire and causes hardship. Incompetent governments, especially those in Europe and the US, allowing terrorism, refugees and clime changes to happen without care of the threats to their citizens. This is a first part of the 2 articles about the global problems and what to do about it.
What the democratic elected leaders suppose to do is doing their duty as leader for their country. And obviously they don’t. They allow – with their incompetence – their citizens to be attacked, vilified, slaughtered and terrorized within their countries, cities, villages and houses. While the world is changing dramatically, the democratic elected leaders are still trying to govern according old realities (even go so far to be in denial), which doesn’t apply anymore on the current reality. This article tells what’s the problem and what to do about it.
The refugee problems from the Middle East and Africa is not only a potential security problem (hidden terrorists, Islamic extremists, etc.), but they get mismanaged in their new host countries as well. The normal political correct approach of the authorities go too far to let those people and the local population suffer because of incompetence of the politicians and their ability to make things happen. Who is crazy enough to accept more then 800,000 additional refugees when they are not able to handle the current number of refugees? It has all the signs of disasters going to happen and I’m not talking about security disasters only, but social and human disasters.
At this moment, the conflict is being contained in a few countries, like Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Libya.
In Lebanon there is still a government, but dominated by the Shi’ite flavored Syrian government, with Sunni and Shi’ite populations and Shi’ite extremist groups like Hezbollah, which is actively supported by Iran. Lebanon is looking wearily at the approaching ISIS and the incursions of Sunni insurgents in their territory. Iran and Saudi Arabia are providing military and financial support with the US in order to defends itself against the expected ISIS hordes.
