  1. I think that so-called “populism” is based on people not wanting to be told what they can or cannot think and having to listen to people who try to guilt and shame them with their stories. I think that other than stopping doing that, the other way to reach people is to use the idea of WII-FM (What’s in it – for me!) Instead of continuing to focus on why people should change to make life better for others, a connection could be made as to why being a sensitive, human being with a social conscience can be good for anyone.
