World News: Biden’s Victory, America’s Divide, and the World’s Response

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

If Joe Biden's victory seals Donald Trump's departure from the White House, it does not necessarily extinguish populist fever. As Americas remains divided, the resurgence of the populist movement, or the red fever, continues to grow.

The roots of the movement driven by the idea of ​​a confrontation between people and elites are able to give birth to a new form of populism, slyer because it influences discourse with a balanced vocation.

Some, and rightly so, might think that Donald Trump's defeat in the presidential election is the death knell for political populism that has flourished in various parts of the world for the past decade.

The United States, United Kingdom, Hungary, Poland, Italy are all countries to have yielded to the sirens of a political current mixing simplifications and exaggerations for purely electoral purposes, opposing people and political, economic or media elites but without lasting solutions for the general.

This feeling which aims to think that populism is possibly living its last hours, legitimate and understandable, must however be balanced because if the populist leaders are gradually led to leave power, because they are incapable, or to discredit themselves within the international institutions, even within their own country (it suffices to appreciate the scale of the pro-abortion demonstrations in Poland which testify to the libertarian and democratic impetus of the latter), it is possible that populism will take other shapes. An explanation is in order.

Double Crisis and Complexity

The current global conjunction of the health and economic crisis, the first fueling the second, the weight and the effects of globalization, could push, in the months or years to come the populations most exposed to the consequences of this crisis. double crisis to, if not openly opt for clearly populist regimes, but to turn to theses imprinted or influenced by populist speeches carried by candidates or parties that we qualify as moderate or republicans.

This insinuation of populism in the discourse pertaining above all to the general interest would reflect several evolutions even within societies today in search of meaning and benchmarks. First among them, the porosity, and the fragility of conventional discourses with theses which ultimately call for little knowledge of the complexity that governs our contemporary societies.

The political shortcut, served by conspiratorial or conspiratorial theses which populism knows how to make its cabbage fat, threatens parties and organizations recognized for their weighting but often struggling to resolve societal equations. Second development, that of populations in search of solutions and answers to their ill-being, whether it be social or economic. Populism, which thrives above all on fear of the unknown and the next day, in the idea of ​​an enemy embodied by selfish political elites, finds in the questions of our time a fertile ground for its growth.

Influence and Renewal

Thus, the almost certain departure of Donald Trump from the presidency of the United States certainly marks the end of a period that historians will have the task of qualifying in the years to come, but does not necessarily seal that of the United States. populism.

The Donald Trump episode highlighted the fact that a country with global influence could give in to populist temptation, thus accrediting the possibility of populist governance.

However, the departure of this one, which does not necessarily end the experience, perhaps opens an era of political turbulence in which populism, capable of renewing itself, which is its strength, will seek by means of its willingness to impose itself directly or indirectly. More than innovative speeches, it is probably prudence that will have to be shown in the years to come.
