Steven Pinker: why did Trump and right-wing populism win?



being more popular than today but at the same time there's been an upsurge of populist routines in different parts of the world in particular in fact even in Europe and maybe according to some in the United States I have you explain that fact currently it's a person that's your most ability become a food addict or no and I saw that there are new people in Isis that would open up early 2000s the decidua me debate team and masochistic by this reason of solubility minimalism commercially Vincent cinnamon yeah I don't think anyone really understands what why it happened when it when it happened the two main theories are economic because of the Great Recession that seems unlikely to be true especially in the United States where the people support aren't really conservative the one-percent dollar from had the most regressive tax cut in history was basically reduce taxes for the rich and the people who supported independence those important cultural but there are certain parts of the population that feel left behind by the change of progressive changes in the culture by the favoring of women racial minorities gay people and immigrants and so the white men feel disrespected that things are happening without them and there's a backlash to assert than a Friday I think at least in the United States and I'm expecting in Europe probably the cultural explanation use more data that if you look at what parts of the country supported a Donald Trump it is not that it's not that the poor people the dispossessed people when Trump speaker supporters in fact Trump has more support and more support among richer people then the poor people in the Hillary Clinton had more support among other people but measures of actual racism were highly predictive of support for Trump in particular this is an amazing analysis if you look across the United States at who searches on Google for racist jokes as the kind of secret mention of how racist people ask people do you think the black African Americans are inferior well most people say no I would not say that I just don't get Nick to that but if you into privacy do you type it you search for anti black jokes that's maybe a better measure and there the correlation is almost perfect that this does not mean people supported Donald Trump because there there is this the most people supported project we got the best overlap between the reaction to the fake these Enlightenment humanist advances and support for Trump he very much can aimed on opposition to political correctness

  1. Totalmente de acuerdo con el sr Pinker. Yo me he preguntado muchas veces cómo pudo ganar Trump, y no encontraba la respuesta en los medios de comunicación (soy de España). Hasta que me empecé a interesar (en YouTube) por la corrección política y sus reacciones en USA (Jordan Peterson y Canadá…), y en diciembre de 2018 saltó a la palestra un partido político español llamado Vox (mezcla de nacionalistas y liberales). Este partido político es el único que se atreve a salir en los medios criticando el feminismo totalitario del que se ha apoderado la izquierda española para adoctrinar (la lucha de clases ya no cuela, pero este mensaje sí está calando), y está teniendo un gran auge por ello, a pesar de que tiene a todos los medios de comunicación y resto de partidos políticos en contra con una campaña de insultos (fascistas, xenófobos, machistas, etc) realmente feroz y desproporcionada. Ha sido entonces cuando lo he entendido. Este partido político está ganando adeptos con apenas tres frases: El hombre y la mujer tienen igualdad de derechos ante la Ley, los inmigrantes ilegales han de ser juzgados (devueltos a su país de origen), y hay que bajar impuestos (poca o nula intervención del estado en lo económico). Usan términos como fake news (y con razón) y no les molesta que les comparen con Trump.
    Estoy muy contento de haberme dado cuenta de ello, ya que es imposible encontrar en los medios de comunicación españoles noticias u opiniones (a parte de este partido político Vox) que te adviertan del peligro de la corrección política como arma política.
    Me alegro también de haber encontrado videos suyos hablando científicamente del tema, me suscribo y me dispongo a empacharme con más de sus conocimientos.
