Law or Godwin's Law of Nazi Analogies
(formulated in 1990) states, roughly, that in
any discussion of a controversial subject,
sooner or later somebody will make the
comparison to Hitler and Nazism.

writer (who opposes using logical fallacies,
such as Hitler analogies, in arguments)
Everybody is fed up with something these days.
Many are fed up with lots of things. Some can't
focus on their own lives because they concentrate
so much on what they dislike. For many, just
saying the word "occupy" or the number "1%" evokes
distaste or ranting.
They're fed up with government policies that
result eventually in extinction of hundreds of
species of animals every year.
They're fed up with taxes. ("What's the point of
working or getting a raise if it just means you
have to pay more taxes? I already pay about half
my pay in taxes of one sort or another.")
They're fed up with government. ("Elected reps are
inefficient and corrupt. They feed themselves and
starve everybody else.")
They're fed up with The System. (1% of us, the
super rich, own almost everything and the rest of
us 99% are nothing but slaves.")
They're fed up with Wall St. or whatever the
financial services location is in their country.
("The rich get richer while the rest of us lose
our hard-earned money so we can't afford to
They're fed up hearing about global warming,
knowing that the worst polluters are facilities
operated by governments themselves and companies
they license. And industries supported by
governments with grants.
Aircraft are the worst moving polluters of the
air, yet governments give hefty loans, grants and
tax benefits to aircraft manufacturers who employ
lots of people. When deciding between jobs and
pollution, governments always choose jobs. In
effect, this choice is between health and jobs.
People are fed up with that bad choice.
They're fed up with government who support big
corporations, who end up paying zero or almost no
tax, while the lowest income earners who can
barely afford to survive have to pay heavily,
People are not so fed up with pollution that
threatens to warm the atmosphere by half a degree.
They understand that governments give permits that
allow industries to emit half a million chemicals
into the air they breathe and 300,000 chemicals
into the water they drink. They assume that half a
degree rise in average temperature is not much and
they haven't died from bad water or air yet. But
they are fed up with governments that give the
grants that eventually cause poisoning of the air
they breathe and the water they drink.
They're fed up with hydraulic fracturing (known as
hydro fracking or just fracking) by natural gas
companies that poisons ground water and may cause
earthquakes and volcanoes (one of which, in
Yellowstone, could destroy almost the whole of the
United States if it ever erupts). Jobs again.
They're fed up with Big Pharma and doctors that
keep people sick while filling their own pockets.
Cures are rare because that would end the massive
They're fed up with GMOs (Genetically Modified
Organisms, or GEs, Genetically Engineered
organisms) that threaten to destroy the health of
everyone. People know these exist and proliferate
because of corrupt politicians. They're fed up
with vaccines that have been shown through
scientific study to cause more harm to health than
they have benefits, especially to children.
People are fed up because their very existence is
threatened. That makes the survival instinct kick
in. So they protest. In some countries it's the
Occupy movement. In others it's demonstrations
that turn into riots, revolutions and the
overthrow of governments and dictators.
Why is that good? How could it possibly be good?
Human nature supports the status quo. We dislike
change because we don't know what to expect. We
let corporations exploit us and corrupt
governments control us beyond what is acceptable
by human rights standards of today because we
don't want to cause trouble for ourselves by
rocking the boat.
But too many people are now too fed up. When
decades of poor health, no jobs and early death
face them, they are ready to take action.
Industries have already brought about more changes
in one lifetime than have taken place in 16
generations previously. But many of those changes
went overboard to further enrich the wealthy and
further impoverish the poor. The Middle Class of
past generations has now joined the poor. Few can
afford to retire at any age before they die.
That makes people want change.
Wealthy industrialists and bankers (a few people
control most of the money flow in the world) have
bought elected representatives and now manipulate
them like puppets. They represent not all voters,
but the super rich few.
In what form will the inevitable uprisings occur?
In many forms, no doubt. Of this we may be
certain, Arab Spring uprisings and even more
recent trouble in Ukraine and in Crimea state, if
change does not happen soon enough violence can't
We may be certain that the world's bankers, the
ones who have funded every war in recent
history--both sides--will not allow change that is
against their best interests to happen easily or
without a fight. To them, violence, always carried
out by lowly "others" is considered nothing more
than business as usual.
The people of the world do not want more violence,
more wars, more riots. Massive demonstrations
begin as peaceful protests and turn violent only
when the police or military that are controlled by
the government, that is controlled by the elite
bankers begin to fire weapons and kill
demonstrators. The ones that cause violence are
backed by the few with the money, those who have
the most to lose if change is forced on their
The media, almost entirely owned and controlled by
the elite, report demonstrations as "violent" if
the police fire weapons or use truncheons.
Extremely large demonstrations around the world
have often been totally ignored by the media
because no violence resulted.
Change is inevitable because the tipping point has
been passed. Demonstrations now happen in almost
every country of the world, every year. Eventually
the leaders in many countries will come together
and, standing united, force changes more massive
than any seen in human history.
Not only will you be alive to see it, you will be
involved, one way or another. This change, this
peaceful revolution, will involve almost every
person on the planet. You would be wise to be
aware if it, even if you do not demonstrate
yourself, because your life will be changed as a
result of the change.
