How should progressives respond to populist narratives?

Can’t we just change people’s minds with the facts? No, says Israel Butler, author of the book Countering Populist Authoritarians. Israel lays out another way for progressives to respond to populist narratives. 

Look out for...

  • Core values 
  • Narratives of security and competition
  • Openness to change vs tradition
  • Authority vs Love thy neighbour
