Nietzsche and the Nazis
I recently watched Stephen Hicks documentary (or should I say, "filmed lecture") titled Nietzsche and the Nazis on Netflix. It's an interesting film. I agree with the author that Nietzsche provides much of the philosophical groundwork for Fascism. Hicks does point out some areas where Nietzsche's philosophy and words were twisted a bit to fit into the Nazi framework, but by and large, he concludes they're a good fit. A good critique of the film can be found here.
