There’s an internet adage known as Godwin’s Law or Godwin’s Rule of Nazi Analogies that states that the longer a topic of discussion goes on the greater the chances of comparisons to Hitler and the Nazi’s become. This concept is similar to Reductio ad Hitlerum coined in 1953 by political philosopher Leo Strauss. If you want to criticize something in a big way – play the Hitler card.
Of course there can be valid comparisons to Nazi Germany but I try not to quickly resort to that tactic. Sometimes, however, the Hitler card is laying face up on the top of the deck.
