  •  The evil that men do.... (23+ / 0-)

    Here is an interesting follow up in the way of a comment from Greenwald's blog:

    The evil behind Hitler lived well after that man died. I speak not the swastika, or the sad band of misfits that still revere it, but those who intrinsically believe that most of society exists to serve the few -- fodder for the machine. The fuel behind Hitler and the many like him throughout history is still an abundant resource, pumping energy into our current war on the global poor.

      But it's just lazy to claim that Nazism is part of it.  Business was complicit with the Nazis, just as Catholicism was complicit with Italian fascism, but they were separate phenomena.  The Nazis were nihilistic aesthetes - they killed in order to create living tableaux, eliminating groups of people they considered unappealing while trying to breed "superhumans."  At the highest levels, it wasn't even hate - it was mere dislike that authored genocide.  That's part of what made it so diabolical.  Hitler wanted to paint a picture, and the Jews didn't fit into it.  It wasn't "just business" for these guys - they considered murder an art form.
