In recent years, debates about democracy have often been about populism. Some see it at as threat to democracy, others as its salvation: finally the people (in Latin: populus) are coming to power. Either way, there is some confusion. In the Populist Game, you assume the role of a populist, and try to become and remain the Supreme Leader of your country. On level 1, you try to become as popular as you can. On level 2, you try to come to power, and on level 3, you can overthrow democracy. Who knows, you could top the high score and become the Supreme Leader. Practice the game here.
