The power of demagogues.“What you must do .. is have the rabble on your side. With the rabble on your side, no one can get at you.” From: Michel Houellebecq. “The Possibility of an Island. 2006”

“They are on my side,” I protested; “they come to my shows.”

“That’s not enough; you’ve got to go further. What they respect is money. You’ve got money, but you don’t show it off enough. You’ve got to blow it a bit more.”
