Abstract

An eternal fight between Good and Evil fuels the imaginaries of the European Radical Right (ERR) in a psychology of continuous panic-mongering. Is Europe the bulwark and pinnacle of Western civilization, the safe haven of Christianity, tradition and family values or has it turned into a dystopian oppressive dictatorship of ‘globalist’ Eurocracy? The imminent end of European civilization as we know it has received many names in the ERR such as the ‘breaking point’ in UKIP-rhetoric, ‘systemkollaps’ in Swedish (the ‘breakdown of the system’) or ‘Asylflut’ in German (the ‘refugee deluge’ – a biblical trope of scourge).
