    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.
