“Three Men, Two Brains, Many Walls and One Simple Message”

What is behind the rise of Trump, Orban, Brexit, and the backlash against liberal and enlightenment values? Why do so many people identify with and support populists whose ideas make no sense to many others? What does it really mean to be liberal or conservative and what is the appeal of these worldviews? In his five minutes, John provides some clarity on these issues.
