The rise of populism in the nations is found to be profound. The populist forces have been a decisive force in the outcome of the British referendum on membership for the EU in June 2016. In the nations, a strong anti-immigrant and populist sentiment is growing in the nations. These had even caused the people to analyse the political and constitutional existential crisis that is found to exist in the United Kingdom. Britain decides to withdraw from the EU. It has been observed that development of a strict traditionalist views that are related to family and child rearing that is debated.
Fundamentally, the liberal ideologies are threatening the people for losing their culture and identity. A cultural backlash argument has been made (Zürn & de Wilde, 2016). A growing generational gap is found to exist in the Western societies to ensure the development of the cultural cleavage. The orthogonal pushed in the cultural politics is found to generate divisions with the mainstream parties (Haidt, 2016). These enable the newer opportunities for the populist leaders on the right and left to support the electorate (Labonté, 2017). These are a challenging ideology of the populist parties that build on the organizational base to sustain through any of the breakthroughs in this government (Labonté, 2017). This backlash is found to be predominately in the western societies. It has been alluded that by ensuring protectionism measures, there can be positive development that can be observed.
Noted capitalists such as Adam Smith state that these restraints place shackles on the growth of the nation (Steenbergen & Siczek, 2017). It has been observed that development of the doctrine is based on the balance of trade. It is observed restraints and regulation of the commerce that is founded. These would eventually create tensions and apprehension in the people creating fear and insecurity. There would be increase in the trade deficit leading to lower quality of life.
Rising tension in the Middle East and humanitarian concerns exist in the nation. These populist sentiments cause the people to lose more resources. Owing to this, all the tenets of populism cannot be positive. The reasons for fear are the loss of heritage and culture in the people. The people fear that their loss of quality of life is plausible in this situation. In this process, it is imperative to consider all the factors that are related to this paradigm. This influx of fear would only harbour resentment and causes the people to be more impacted by this process. The people would need to consider how this process would be impacted. There cannot be growth in one nation while other world nations suffer the humanitarian crisis. In this paradigm, it can be comprehended that there is a need to strike a balance between growth, maintaining of culture and factoring in the issues of the world.
