    Left-Wing Populism is a culturally and economically left-wing ideology that emphasizes the popular frustrations of the working class (e.g. lack of healthcare, poverty, unemployment) for political gain. Its proponents either advocate some form of Soc-h.png Socialism (typically Demsocstar.png Democratic Socialism) or just Socdem.png Social Democracy. It saw a rise after the events of the Financial crisis of 2007-2008 and the Europe debt crisis, leading to movements like Occupy Wall Street. It believes that it is the only viable way to fight off Neoliberal-icon.png Neoliberalism and that Rpop-tinfoilhat.png Right-Wing Populism will only make it stronger. Like its brother, it also opposes the EU for the most part, but is usually more open to reforming it rather than abolishing it.


    LaFollete.png La Follette Progressivism

    La Follette Progressivism is an Leftunity.png economically left and Prgess.png culturally left political ideology based off the Wisconsin progressive movement under Governor, Senator, and Representative Robert M. La Follette. La Follette led a political dynasty in Wisconsin, which was continues by his sons Robert Jr. and Philip, who were Senator and Governor respectively. Wisconsin’s progressive movement saw its peak in 1924, when La Follette’s third party presidential run won nearly 17% of the national vote and carried Wisconsin.
    Aspects of La Follette’s political thought included state ownership of railway, Farm.png cheap credit for farmers, outlawing child labor, laws promoting union interests, Civlibert.png protection of civil liberties, Antiimp.png ending American imperialism in Latin America, and a referendum before any president could lead the nation into war. La Follette initially supported the Orthlen.png Bolsheviks in the Russian Civil War, but later became LeftAntiCom.png anti-communist after visiting the young Bolshevism ball.png USSR.

La Follette opposed both in the 1912 elections, voting for Sewersoc.png Socialist nominee Debs.png Eugene Debs (though he did not formally endorse any candidate).

    • Socliber.png Social Libertarianism - You are a populist (mostly) and vaguely on the left but you are way too capitalist.
    • Altl.png Alt-Lite - Zoomer brainwashed by my brother and his friends, at least his style is a bit better but still on the wrong path.
    • Patcon.png Paternalistic Conservatism - Like how you use left-leaning economics as a way to help people, idk about the whole social conservatism though.
    • Ancom.png Anarcho-Communism - I am glad you see us as allies, but your ideals are just impossible to achieve, just vote for the politicians that help the people, and that way we can enact change.
