    I'm skeptical.  The most successful populist movement in US history currently holds 2.5 of the 3 branches of govt- meaning that populism is the establishment position.

    but the people who control those branches of government don't give a shit what the people think. They only care what their political donors think, ie the opposite of populism.

    Nah. In China it is the establishment + the citizens vs. the terrorists and the separatists. If the future is like that then you have made a terrible job of managing the citizens.
