Haha, you got me. That is quite clearly exactly what I meant!
Populism is not without flaws. Tyranny of the majority is a very serious problem and much has been done to try and quell that problem. However, tyranny of the powerful minority is also a significant problem. The broad scope of things is that there needs to be a balance between the two and right now, the scale is heavily tipped in favor of the powerful minority. For the last couple of decades, the US government has worked to make things better for the powerful minority, leaving the commoner majority the table scrap wedge issues that only serve to show that they did at least one thing beneficial for you.
That needs to change and balance needs to be restored where the US government is being beneficial to most everyone. In doing so, some harsh realities may be faced by the powerful minority. This will likely include items such as having to pay more taxes which reflects upon how much more they utilize and benefit from the economy and infrastructure of the US. Intentionally ineffective regulations may be replaced with new versions that make it difficult to pollute the environment we all share, or new privacy restrictions that make it illegal for an ISP to retain any of your data or other companies to use your data to profit without proper compensation.
A hundred years ago, people were regularly exploited and thrown out as trash after they were injured or killed while on the job. Wise people saw this as a problem and sought ways to correct that problem and it brought forward a much more powerful country. People like to say the aftermath of WWII is what brought the US out of the depression. What they forget is that the US was already well on its way, fast tracking out of the depression before it even entered WWII. The laws and regulations passed in the decade before were what made it possible to even consider entering the war in the first place. A struggling country would never have the ability to produce enough supplies for such an event. If you need further proof of this, just look at the countries that fell so easily early in WWII, all struggling countries, trying to deal with the problems caused by the depression.
Currently, we're on a march back in time against all these policies that were enormously beneficial. It brings to mind the famously wise quote from George Santatana:
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
We are in for hard times if your line of thought is to be the norm.
