Weak and soft notions are doomed to foster weak and eclectic statements on what they apply to – here the problems Western-style democracies have today with legitimacy. This is why we shouldn't ask ourselves what populism actually is, but rather what the general conditions are and, in particular, what the discursive conditions are, that make that populism has become such a « powerful word » in the mouth of politicians, journalists, and political scientists.
As Gilles Deleuze said: it's always a bad sign when philosophy (philosophers) begin to think and speak in the same terms and use the same vocabulary as journalists. Conversely, it means that those who look critically at the present should keep at bay the media jargon and promote their own concepts.
