Populism is the idea that politics should be responsive to the people. From the very moment the term was coined in 1890s America, political elites have branded it a dirty word. America's Populist Party, from which the term derives, advocated political heresies like the government regulation of railroad monopolies, monetary inflation to combat a protracted economic depression, the direct popular election of senators, and a progressive income tax to shift the burden of taxation onto the shoulders of the rich. Though the American populists never won a presidential election, over the next fifty years all of their major policy demands were transformed from outsider political demands into mainstream political common sense. The populists were dismissed, vilified, and finally suppressed, but they were right.09.2019
