Popping Political Populism

The recent news that Donald Trump is under investigation is yet another point on the curve towards improved world leadership. To misquote the band name: Populism will eat itself!

In a world that needs collaborative leadership to face complex problems such as climate change, famine, war, migration, and so on, we seem to have opted for more didactic leaders with catchy but meaningless slogans.  In the UK we have Brexit populism.  In the US we have Trump’s version of isolationist politics, and so on.

This is why I coined the phrase ‘Brexorcism’ to change minds in the UK about Brexit.  The skills involved are just as applicable in other theatres of populism.

Last week, I was asked to speak on the need to turn back from populism and discuss the contributions from psychology, sociology, and therapeutic approaches to wake people up to more long-term and global outlooks on our politics.  You can view the masterclass below.

I also spoke on the role of satire, humour, and catharsis as a way into the most closed minds on political issues, based on our book Private Eyelines.
