It Ain't What It Used To Be

"Today, populism is a kind of sentiment that bursts into view in times like these, but there is no real movement behind it. The public just doesn't mobilize around issues in the way it once did."

Alan Brinkley

"What both the 1890s and 1930s had in common was an intense class anger, a stark division of the nation into 'bosses' and 'workers.' I don't think this perspective applies to our present crisis."
