A slur in time

An aphorism of which I have always been particularly fond states that “isolationist” is a term created by imperialists to denigrate noninterventionists.

With the advent of President Donald Trump, a new version suggests itself: “populism” is a term created by authoritarians to denigrate democracy that thwarts their agenda.
