Precisely. TBH I’ve grown quite wary of populism. I’m not saying that I oppose policies that could be called populist i.e. increased taxes on the wealthy, higher minimum wage, holding corporations accountable, etc but I don’t trust populism as a political movement. And I don’t think populism is how we’ll defeat both Trump and Trumpism.

I’ve never been a fan of populism. Have always leaned towards being a technocrat. I like experts and people who know the fuck they’re talking about.

Populism, to me at least, be it left or right always seems to be based on some sort of resentment and emotion. Dangerous things in politics, are those.
