Laclau sees populism as the very essence or substance of political life. Here, along the lines of Freud’s investigation into group psychology, it is argued that populism is merely an attribute, or property, of political leadership. Seen in this light, populism comes to affect political life only at times, when a given society starts undergoing a process of radical reshaping. Thus, the question of populism paves the way for a further question: What does it mean that a society reshapes itself?
