Summary

Numerous political commentators have noted the rise of the radical right worldwide. How has the radical right responded to the COVID-19 pandemic? Has the radical right been legitimized in a world of closed borders and greater securitization? Have radical right regimes in power cracked under the strains of the crisis and thus undermined their own political fortunes? Have radical right-wing responses to COVID-19 been uniform or diversified? These are some of the questions tackled in Responses to the COVID-19 Pandemic by the Radical Right.

This volume gathers a collection of short pieces, which highlight the multi-faceted ways in which right-wing and radical right-wing political forces have responded to the COVID-19 pandemic. It presents research by scholars from all around the world concentrating on the evolution of radical right-wing movements since the COVID-19 crisis began and their influence on mainstream and alternative narratives. 

The edited volume includes case studies as well as far-reaching reports on the radical right’s utilizing of the crisis to re-shape ideas about sovereignty, globalization, democracy, equality, diversity, and political legitimacy. Such studies comprise cases on gender and class, racism, religious hatred, scapegoating, anti-Semitism and Sinophobia, conspiracy theories, and online radicalization, focusing on locations as diverse as the US, Canada, Brazil, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Italy, France, Spain, Ukraine, Latvia, Israel, and India. All such studies are compiled in a total of six chapters and an epilogue, organized thematically and by country.

    Rutherford B. Hayes’s presidential campaign was fraught with drama, and a late acceptance (only a week before the inauguration) made the presidential hopeful’s speech even more interesting. During this speech, Hayes made many promises, especially revolving around race and the state of jobs during that time. Acknowledging that the change in political atmosphere connotated a change in the way the entire nation was run, Hayes promised to work toward a constructive change for the betterment of all Americans. He then asks his fellow citizens to join him in rejoicing over the unification of the two sides.

    For the Enneagram enthusiast looking to deepen their transformation, The Enneagram of Belonging offers an enlightening, enriching path forward. 
    Many have discovered the Enneagram to be a powerful tool for self-understanding, yet knowing ourselves doesn't necessarily mean we accept ourselves. Most of us tend to curate the personality of our type: leading with the traits we perceive as positive, and sidelining the traits that cause us shame.  
    But what if it all belonged? Rather than furthering our own fragmentation, what if we dared to make peace with the whole of who we are with bold compassion? The Enneagram of Belonging is your guide to this essential journey. 
    While most contemporary Enneagram books stop at the descriptions of the nine types, Enneagram teacher and The Sacred Enneagram bestselling author Chris Heuertz uncovers the missing link in our journey of living into our true self: radical self-compassion that can bring us back to belonging. 
    Rather than get stuck on stereotypes or curated personality, Heuertz proposes we develop an honest relationship with our type, confronting our "inner dragons," practicing self-compassion, and thereby coming to fully belong to ourselves--and, ultimately, to love itself. 
    In this in-depth examination of the Enneagram of Personality, you will discover:A fresh, compassionate way of understanding your childhood wound, which Heuertz reframes as your Kidlife CrisisYour unique subtype and how this colors your dominant type, plus how to work with your Enneagram instinctPractical insight to help you find freedom from your type's Passions and FixationsYour personalized path back to belonging, as you come home to your true self. . . and much more. 
    As a masterful mapmaker and trailblazer of grace, Heuertz casts a vision for how we can create a better world. The truth is how we treat ourselves is how we treat others, so let's start with compassion, and let this outflow into our relationships, communities, and world.

    Santaklaus - Quadrology of Love. 
    This book series is my interpretation of the transition from the age of pisces to the age of aquarius, to its higher vibrations. All-encompassing love is relevant to all of us - this is something we can learn now, because the vibrations are growing and if we don´t, we will not be able to bear them.
