For Steve Bannon, the way to create an enduring populist majority is to combine forces on the left and right.Just as in France, America and Britain, it appears to be a rural backlash against urban elites.The Brookings Institution has shown that since the financial crisis of 2008, 72 percent of the gains in employment have accrued to the country's top 53 metropolitan areas. To understand the structural division this causes, keep in mind that all U.S. cities together contain 62.7 percent of the population but occupy just 3.5 percent of the country's land. The Wall Street Journal has pointed out that the fate of urban versus rural America has been turned on its head. This urban-rural chasm is also true in France, Italy, Britain and many other Western countries.Similar regions across France were once called "la France profonde".So in France, in Britain, in the United States, the ordinary person, who doesn't have a fancy degree, who doesn't attend TED Talks, who doesn't have capital or connections, will reasonably wonder -- where does that leave me?
