The Rise of Populism and the Backlash Against the Elites, with Nick Clegg and Jonathan Haidt Haidt presents some good insight about the last election from a social phycological perspective. I wasn't that impressed with Clegg. This is the first time I have heard him speak so maybe he is better elsewhere. Haidt points out that a big divide between voters in the US presidential election is based off of the idea of seeing the world as a globalist vs nationalist. Those who see the world who want more law and order vs protecting the rights of those who may be discriminated against. Social media role in how people see things is also discussed. Good talk.
