Für einen anderen Populismus: Ein Plädoyer (German Edition) by David Van Reybrouck,Arne Braun

By David Van Reybrouck,Arne Braun

David Van Reybrouck geht es um demokratische Partizipation. Alle Menschen müssen sich in Politik und Entscheidungsfindungen einbringen, deshalb: Mehr Populismus! Besserer Populismus!

Populismus gilt, gerade in Zeiten des zunehmenden Nationalismus, als negativer Begriff, doch in ganz Europa haben populistische Bewegungen starken Zulauf. David Van Reybrouck, selbst Historiker und Archäologe, sieht den Grund dafür in einer immer größeren Kluft zwischen Menschen mit akademischer Ausbildung und Menschen bildungsfernerer Schichten. Während die Riege der Akademiker durchaus die Vorteile der Globalisierung sieht und Toleranz für das Fremde fordert, verbinden Menschen in ungelernten Jobs und mit schlechterer Bezahlung mit dem Wort Globalisierung oft zuallererst Ängste, auch Konkurrenzängste.
In Regierungen sind Nichtakademiker oder die sogenannten einfachen Leute aber mittlerweile völlig unterrepräsentiert. Sie von demokratischen Entscheidungsprozessen auszugrenzen kann aber fatale Folgen haben und sie zu radikalen Positionen treiben.
Nach "Gegen Wahlen" legt Van Reybrouck erneut eine streitbare Schrift vor, die Demokratie und Regierungsbeteiligung für alle fordert: auch und gerade für diejenigen, die in medialen und gesellschaftlichen Debatten oft nicht zu Wort kommen und sich deshalb fatalerweise Parteien zuwenden, die populistisch den Nationalismus und rechtsradikale Bewegungen stärken. Van Reybroucks Plädoyer dagegen: Populismus nicht fürchten, sondern zur Stärkung der Demokratie nutzen!
