Media reports continue to attribute the rise in right-wing to the GFC and rising 'relative deprivation', this despite growing evidence for a V-Curve pattern in populist support, with 'relative deprivation' and 'relative gratification' BOTH fueling populist voting.

Studies have shiwn that the vote to leave the EU would not have happened without Tory austerity. And of course all the tabloids/right wing populist media outlets blaming EU for UK poverty.

Sure, austerity measures may have made things worse (aggravating relative deprivation), but in order for the UKIP 'Leave' camp to win they needed to attract a large proportion of well-to-do voters (which they did!)

This was always about values. You can be poor with conservative values or well off with liberal values and vice versa. Generally we tend to have a mix of both. Leave nudged enough voters towards the conservative end of their values spectrum.

And I'm now wondering whether voter apathy is a direct result of internally conflicting values?

This hits home even here in the Netherlands. It’s increasingly hard to even discuss the topic, worse even when exploring challenges.

@f_roggy Given the media is at least 80% Progressive Left activist I wouldn’t get too excited what their views on populism or anything else are. People who live in inner city self appointed elite circles are not worthy of much consideration

I wonder what his view is in regards to the simultaneous rise in the popularity of socialism?

I’m guessing based on this he is suffering from a complete lack of memory recall on that subject. It appears to be an affliction many on that sides suffer from

Thanks for the follow! I have a hunch I’m an outlier in your book. I’ve gone from very comfortable to being at brink of losing everything w/no social safety net. But I’ll remain liberal, un-xenophobic, + continue championing for those less fortunate no matter my circumstances.

Rings a bell here - after 20 years of expat service returning home to end up homeless and undocumented. Policy changes, governance and IT drama, etc. Still, one must remain human. If not, any effort to repair circumstances is wasted.

I genuinely wish you well. Please dm me if there is anything I can do. I went thru just 1 month of homeless hell — +even w/a car, storage, gym to shower — I’d never wish this on anyone. A month later, I’m still traumatized, worried of a repeat. This is no longer my America.

Thank you, it took me a bit to word a reply - even after two years it still hits home (so to speak) to see others who recognise the hurt. Typically reactions are very different. Thank you.

My words weren’t empty. I truly believe we are all each others’ keepers. I see you live in The Netherlands which treats the elderly w/far more decency than we ever have. I learned about a “village” for those with Alzheimer’s where residents “go shopping” + live w/dignity.
