Ever since I first heard about it, I’ve instinctively agreed with Godwin’s Law and the implications thereof — that pretty much any comparison of anything to Nazism is a shallow, vile act that cheapens the true evil of the Nazis, and usually just demonstrates the inability of the arguer to put forth a real, cogent argument.
I sincerely hope that Wretchard is wrong. More than I can possibly say. I find myself hoping and wishing that the Israeli pullout from Gaza will, in the end, be seen as a step towards peace.
But Wretchard — damn him — provides a compelling argument that if history is any sort of guide, it will eventually be seen as one of the catalysts of a future cataclysm.
