Nassim Nicholas Taleb has put it best:Or, as I like to put it:
“When people vote the way of the intellectual-yet-idiot elite, it is ‘democracy’. Otherwise it is misguided, irrational, swayed by populism and a lack of education.”
When the left wins elections, it is the proof that democracy is at work.
When the right wins elections, it means we are in the throes of populism.
