Just listened to a very interesting overview of Nazism and the connection with Nietzsche philosophy by Stephen Hicks. When humanity decides that morality is subjective, and looks to nature to justify survival of the fittest, very bad things happen. Hicks listed socialism as a big component of Germany's descent into Nazism. While Nazi leaders didn't adopt Nietzsche's philosophy in its entirety, they did gather inspiration by parts of it.

As far as I can tell, modern philosophy is continued upon Nietzsche's philosophy, and tribalism will continue to be our greatest obstacle.
