With all of this stuff from authoritarian and semi-authoritarian writers and political figures

I look at it from a historian's perspective and not from that of an ideologue. There's a lot of interesting stuff contained in these large movements that can be learned from if you view it with the skepticism that anyone looking at them from a somewhat objective standpoint should have.

* on edit: the point of this isn't just some abstract historical exercise, the point of it is to rescue valuable pieces of information that can be used to promote human freedom and social justice.
