In Schmitt’s analysis of nineteenth-century imperialism, the seizure of Africa as “the last great land appropriation by the European powers” was from the start contaminated by a new, inchoate conception of world order, characterized by a “global, universalist-humanitarian intervention[ism]” first expressed by Belgian king Leopold II and promoted by the United States see The Nomos, and It is these and other hierra of Schmitt’s interpretative history, Teschke concludes, that should alert us to the ideological role of Schmitt’s work: Thanks for telling us about the problem.

Or that the theological role of empire for the Catholic kings corresponded to a physical and cultural apocalypse for the American empires? Between a “theological politics” based on the role of the schmith as katechonand a “political theology” based on the Leviathan or “mortal God” of sovereign princes, what can one say about the perseverance of “just war” doctrine overseas, or the constant confusion between secular and religious authority or “pastoral power” in the missions?
