The term populism has come to depict any extreme end of the political spectrum that discusses goals of an elite class as removed from the majority of people in a society, but this is due to historical ignorance and a metamorphosis of the term from its origins. The term populism comes from the 19th century US Populist Party that sought to represent the needs of poor rural farmers against that of rich urban industrialists, the grassroots leftist agrarian movement sort to nationalise the railroad, telephone, and telegraph systems. The term is now being, sometimes erroneously, used to describe the inevitable pushback in a time of rampant corporate monopoly and kleptocracy. However many populist figures especially on the right (such as Donald Trump or Nigel Farage) are from the elite group they often speak out against, and their actions clearly support the enrichment of society's most powerful over that of the people. The left need to reclaim the term populist, as all too often it is misapplied to neo-fascist political actors, who talk in terms of the people versus the elite, but have no connection to or knowledge of the historical populist movement, and are more akin to Nazi's than the original populists.
