Did you consider the anti-capitalistic take over of education in the USA? The removal of most state's rights of autonomy by federalizing the national government is another obvious factor for your results. There is also the advent of the international super corporations that should be considered. There are many more factors to your limited research.

Nothing about Islam in the entire talk? What if one of the fires he speaks of is the corrosive effects of a very illiberal religion? The whole bit at the end about willing to risk you life for your freedom to do as you please in the face of Nero's tendency to cut off heads made me think of someone who blasphemies Islam with inappropriate writing, speech, or drawing (think cartoons). It isn't Nero and it isn't European or American populists who have been cutting heads off lately. Mounk's blind spot is showing. Mounk does not take Islam seriously. It is a very minor side show to him, not to be confused with something that might be relevant to the state of liberal democracy in the future. In this regard he is like so many other liberal Westerners who think Muslims will become good Europeans who behave in the public sphere as if secularism is the norm. Good luck with that! How is liberal democracy working out in Turkey? Egypt? Indonesia? Did he notice that the 45 Muslims nations that signed the Cairo Declaration of Human Rights in Islam think that all human rights originate from sharia? This document is ignored by self-appointed spokesmen of liberal democracy because, like Mounk, they don't take Islam seriously. The peasants in Europe and America take this threat seriously, and they might be right to do so, but Mounk would not give them an inch of legitimacy.

I can see why Mounk wanted to avoid clearly labeling the political alignment of the populists movements that alarm him to avoid seeming partisan but the anti-Semitic comments here kind of show that was futile. Populism IS a part of the political cycle in any democracy though. The real lesson is figuring out the difference between populists you like, populists you don't like but can civilly disagree with, and those who seek violence or long-term violent and illegal ends.

If populism is part of the political cycle in any democracy, why does democracy need to be saved (from populism)? People on the "left" are happy to point out that the "right" blinds the masses with seemingly easy answers that cannot work and appeal to feelings and sentiments rather than logic and reason. They are not entirely wrong. But what are the "left's" answers to mass immigration if not populism at it's best? Open borders with massively differing welfare systems, mass migration of people with poor educaton into high-tech countries, Islam and it's archaic views on women, homosexuality, the role of the state laws, the use of violence etc. The left has no plausible answers: They deny the existence of problems or lay the blame on bogus straw man reason that can't be checked because they are based on their own assumptions (>lack of logic and reason). Their primary arguments are: It is immoral to stop or hinder migration (>appeal to emotion), hence anyone who tries to do so is immoral. They are populists. Just that they have a different populace to blind with different easy answers.

Why is it that jews(who in fact "invented" cultural marxism-liberalism as they did communism) always promote multiculturalism and immigration from 3th world for all Western Nations but not for Israel???And always make propaganda againsts "fascists" that are "threat to democracy" but they do not accept anyone democraticaly elected if they do not agree with his ideas???How is that"respect for democracy"????And if they are so much FOR DEMOCRACY why they ALWAYS try to enforce censorship to anyone and anything that they believe is critical of them by shouting that it must be outlawed as "antisemitic"???Isnt free speech the VERY ESSENCE of democracy???They always subvert and undermine and then wonder why so many are "antisemites".

The fact that this video has as many thumbs down as thumbs up proves he's right that many young people are inexperienced and uneducated about the benefits of a true democracy. They have no clue what it's like to live in an authoritarian regime. All the progress that's been made with the rainbow LGBT rights was only possible due to a healthy democracy. Once that's gone you'll be watching LGBT people get thrown off roofs. Go learn some history fools...

Ich wünsche diesem Typen, dass im das Wort „democracy“ im Hals stecken bleibt! Das ist doch alles Verarsche mit dieser Demokratie. Wir haben keine Demokratie! Wir haben Regierungen, die für oder gegen das Volk sind. Aber das Volk ist nicht informiert bzw. durch Dauerpropaganda der Mainstreammedien manipuliert. Wie kann er das als Demokratie bezeichnen? Der Kerl redet total am Thema vorbei.

What a liar. "Immigrants" have equal rights in Germany. "Immigrants" don't demand inclusion, they themselves don't want to integrate into the German society. Most are a burdon on the German welfare system and always will be. And by that I mean immigrants from Africa or the Middle East (though there are a few exceptions). But what to expect from the big manipulators.

You are right about many things but wrong about the most crucial (imo). It *is* going according to plan. The violence, the destruction of the welfare system, the balkanization of every European nation is exactly what they want. Islam is a tool for them. As are the migrants. As are the pacifist and "multicultural" ideologies they successfully implemented in the heads of most Western Europeans. They do not suffer any of the repercussions. WE do.

The title of the video should obv. be "How To Destroy Democracy | Yascha Mounk | TEDxBerlin". This guy was on television the other day, where he had no shame admitting that we (as in Europe and the US of course - not Japan, not China, not Saudi Arabia, not Kenya etc. etc.) are in a "great" multicultural experiment right now. They've denied it for so long, but now they come out of their hiding places and complain it's not going according to plan. They claim that their utterly insane experiment represents democracy, yet they never had any intentions whatsoever to ask the people if they were interested. And now it's backfired on them big time in the US and Eastern Europe. Western Europe may soon be lost if we don't do anything about it. I do agree with the protest part. We should protest all day long against multiculturalism and the EU "Superstate". This guy and his commie friends can go somewhere else and have their utopia. I suggest they go to the Middle East. Maybe they are intersted, and then they can be properly introduced to Islam. I'm sure they are going to love it. And we wont miss them. Bye.

American democracy is in no need of saving. And I lived through the 1960s and these times are childs play. Assasination after assasination after assasination. Cities all over the nation burned out. And it gets worse. I, my very own self, was forced to take up weapons (lots of different weapons) dodge 122mm and RPG-7 rockets and 105mm short rounds. Then I got home I happened to be in Kent the very day National Guard killed five students. This dope is simply losing his aristocratic priviledge and it frightens him. Get a therapy dog STAT.

"the fire" is vague. Mounk's talking about populism, but he's not clear on what defines populism. He gives some extreme examples of parties that have objectionable views and are often put forward as examples of populism, but these populist parties came into power through a democratic vote. Now it's being phrased that they're a threat to democracy. I have the impression that Mounk is conflating two problems and putting them under one umbrella. The one problem is "populism", which again is ill-defined and as such it's unclear whether it can objectively be called a problem. The other is "the threat to democracy". The way Mounk is presenting his story breeds the impression that the people supporting "populists" are the same people who pose a threat to democracy, but he's unclear about how he came to this conclusion. If you really think about it, social democratic movements of the nineteenth century had populist tendencies and (at least in Europe) those are the parties that are put in the right.

He makes good points but is purposefully evasive as to whether he means right-leaning nativist populists or left-leaning progressive populists. While he clearly means the former in the case of Europe, it's clear that he's not a huge fan of the latter in America either. I can see WHY he's evasive to avoid seeming partisan but regardless, populism is part of the political cycle for better and for worse. Despite what everyone on the Internets or even many experts claim, liberal democracy happened without any true directing head as a result of multiple inputs from multiple movements who were often in opposition to each other. The real lesson is figuring out the difference between populists you like, populists you don't like but can civilly disagree with, and those who seek violence or long-term violent and illegal ends.

"A) Does he really need to define “populism”? It is well known term. I don’t think he means anything different that you will find on internet or in books." Yes, it needs to be defined because we may object to his definition of populism. I find that these days populism is a word that is often used by progressives to define and worse, demonize people with more conservative views than their own. He's given some examples of what he considers populists, but he doesn't clearly define why all of these groups are populist, leaving the definition up in the air. In this way he can use the term selectively towards the parties he simply doesn;t agree with. "B) You write: “Now it's being phrased that they're a threat to democracy.” It isn’t “phrased” but observed in the reality." It is being phrased, because that's how he interprets those observations. Finally, my comment was initially towards you're clever use of the saying: "Another young, smart guy trying to build his brand by consciously or unconsciously writing checks with his mouth that his intellect can't quite cash." --> English isn't my native language so I had to look it up, but you used this saying in completely the wrong context. Being: "actions speak louder than words". I didn't make any claims that implied action so the complete saying was wasted on me.

B) You write: “Now it's being phrased that they're a threat to democracy.” It isn’t “phrased” but observed in the reality. C) He doesn’t imply that people who elect populist are threat to democracy, but self interested populists who have tendencies to dictatorship are, as history proves. The whole point that he makes is that democracy doesn’t survive on its own but has to be preserved by active participation of the people and by non obstructed activities of democratic institutions and independent courts.
