I don’t define beauty merely on looks, so yes.

Nazi art is artistic

No. And besides, morality is as subjective as beauty.

I guess, *beauty* is different from person to person.

Really? I'd say the beauty that society demands is mostly made up of artifice.

I didn't think that through or anything, I was just parroting keats

Well, if you're going to parrot anyone, Keats is a good choice.

I wasn't really sure what Nazi art was but I found this: http://www.goodart.org/artofnz.htm. I agree, some of it is very artistic. And by that. beautiful, in an artistic sense.

I think in anything, no matter how despicable, you can find some value or beauty. Hitler was an amazing speaker; he certainly had a way with words. He was an awful excuse for a human being and he did truly awful things but he was downright eloquent. And isn't eloquent speech, artistic, or beautiful, in a sense?

I think truth and morality are beauty in and of themselves but lies and unmorality can have aspects about them that are beautiful.

I think so - they enhance beauty and are a beautiful quality in and of themselves
