  1. I know some will say “You Godwin’d your own argument. You brought up Hitler to make your point.”

    Does the Godwin rule always apply? Or isn’t the point of history that you learn from it to avoid repeating it?

    • Several things,
      1) anything said by someone who got a B.A. from t.u. is suspect if not outright fallacy.
      2) Godwin’s law does not apply as I was making a direct tie to the weapon registration and seizing of Nazi Germany, not comparing anyone to Hitler or calling anyone a Nazi.
      3) Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it – George Santayana, Reason in Common Sense, 1905.
