(p.257) Chapter Ten Conclusions and Speculations
Totalitarianism and Political Religion
Stanford University Press

This concluding chapter discusses developmental systems, reactive nationalism, totalitarianism, and the forms of political religion that accompanied it. At the turn of the twentieth century, ideologies of reactive nationalism and rapid economic, particularly industrial, development made their appearance. Developmental nationalisms crystallized into true totalitarianisms—Marxist-Leninist, fascist, and national socialist. Hegelianism also had taken on the explicit attributes of secular religiosity typically found in modern totalitarianism.

Keywords:   reactive nationalism, totalitarianism, political religion, nationalism, Marxist-Leninist, fascist, national socialist, Hegelianism
