Democracies are taking a right turn
After a long run of populism, democracies are embracing different ideas
German political philosopher Hannah Arendt once said, “the most radical revolutionaries will become conservative the day after the revolution." If recent events in the domestic politics of many democracies are any evidence, people are either tired of waiting for the revolution or don’t care much for it. Interestingly, the reasons for the newly energized conservatism are global. Israel, Brazil and India are good examples of these changes.
