Τέσσερις απαντήσεις για τον λαϊκισμό: Μια συνέντευξη με τον Ernesto Laclau
Four answers on populism: An interview
Populism becomes a typical political answer whenever dislocations prevail in society which cannot be managed through the normal institutional channels. Populism creates a space of equivalent popular identities, a place where all differences are cancelled. Equivalential populistic logics are not confined to particular points of the ideological spectrum. We can have a populism of the Right but clearly also one of the Left. If the Left does not provide the alternative social imaginary in which they could be inscribed, the latter could be provided by the Right, as is already happening in several countries of Western Europe.
