This chapter explores the third, institutional, dimension of the ideal type: how do populist and illiberal governments govern and what are their methods? Here are discussed: their tendency to simplify complex problems; their tendency to change things by quick and simple measures; their attacks on the pillars of liberal democracy (the judiciary, the press, and independent agencies); and, finally, their predilection for methods of direct democracy, such as referendums, popular initiatives, and primaries.
