The Political Theology of the New Right by Rolf Schieder
https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2019/09/29/18826912.php
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.
