@Are0h Yep. "The cruelty is the point." https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2018/10/the-cruelty-is-the-point/572104/
Or, as Borges wrote of the typical Nazi fan in '40s Argentina, "The triumph of Germany does not matter to him; he wants the humiliation of England and a satisfying burning of London. He admires Hitler as he once admired his precursors in the criminal underworld of Chicago. The discussion becomes impossible because the offenses I ascribe to Hitler are, for him, wonders and virtues. The apologists of Amigas, Ramirez, Quiroga, Rosas or Urquiza pardon or gloss over their crimes; the defender of Hitler derives a special pleasure from them. The Hitlerist is always a spiteful man, and a secret and sometimes public worshiper of criminal “vivacity” and cruelty."
