The Populist Substantialization of Popular Sovereignty
Keywords:representation, embodiment, political pluralism, the people, corruption
This paper argues that populism is a celebration of the myth of sovereignty; it reaches this conclusion by focusing on the populist form of representation as embodiment, a strategy that promises to overcome the gap that mandate representation creates between the elected and the people. The paper shows that this solution ends up being worse than the problem it seeks to solve.
