Moving the goal posts

When did populism become a bad thing, but Democracy is still good?  How is that even possible?

Why is nationalism evil but patriotism a virtue?  Aren’t those synonyms?

If you listen to Liberal/moderate/progressive/communist arguments long enough, you discover, it is always about party and emotions.  Loyalty to the party trumps all.  A trillion dollars has been spent of government studies over the past 100 years to support one side or another with facts to justify programs.  None of it was needed.  All they really needed was, “we have the votes, do it our way”.
