Politics of Grievance will travel a complex journey of grievances through Western religious, intellectual and political development to populism in the United States. The term populism originated in the 19th century. Populist movements embrace a group identified as the people who are aggrieved by a perceived loss of status to another group identified either as the elite or the other. Populism refers to such a wide variety of political positions that populism cannot be positioned on the left–right political spectrum; both right- and left-wing populisms movements exist today – with some combining elements of both right- and left-wing politics – and Populist movements have recently appeared in nearly every democracy around the world.
