Famed Architect Philip Johnson’s Hidden Nazi Past | Vanity Fair
It's a little hard these days imaging a gay rich American of the 1930's getting enamoured of Hitlerian fascism via Nietzsche, but as this rather fascinating article explains, it did indeed happen. (I suppose a similar thing can be said of upper class gay English academics and communism.)
Can't say I knew anything of the anti-Semitic conspiracy mongering of one Father Charles Edward Coughlin before I read this article, either.
This delivery of religion via media pop star has been a big thing in a America for a long time, hasn't it? (I wrote about it in my discussion of "Anything Goes", too.)
