The Political Theology of the New Right

The Political Theology of the New Right by Rolf Schieder
The new right-wing movements try to create a state of emergency with the help of apocalyptic rhetoric enabling them to suspend rules and procedures. Apocalypticists long for the final struggle between good and evil. Eschatologicsts are driven by a theology of hope. The feeling of completely losing control is the motivational driver for accepting right-wing offers and not the alternatives.  Racism and nationalism are made the guidelines of politics.

    Jesus is the auto-basileia, the auto-aletheia of God, the kingdom of God in person and the truth of God in person, the end to human sacrifice and the fulfillment of the land promise to Israel! He calls us to a new language and a new mathematics and could free us from the endless rise of the cult of the ego, human sacrifice, unending war and the emptiness of vulgar materialism, narcissism and nihilism! Those who work one hour receive the same wage as those who work all day in his parable of the laborers in the vineyard (Matt 20, 1-20). God calls everyone to a new life as post-materialists! Knowing and praising God is our great reward. Dust did not become stars from some “Big Bang”! Unlike a chair, an idea can be shared by a whole people!
