Invoking Hitler


In the past three years I have seen more comments comparing political statesmen to Adolf Hitler than I can count. For a split second I asked myself why, but then remembered an article I read almost 13 years ago that has stayed with me – and with the internet (on it’s original page, no less) to this day. The article was entitled “How to Argue Effectively” and can be found here .

What’s interesting to me is that invoking hitler is mentioned – but it is mentioned as the last resort, the big guns, the end all, be all finisher of arguments. And while the article itself may be satirical in nature, it is evident to me that the latest round of comparisons to Hitler is just that – a last ditch effort at winning an argument destined to fail.

Thanks to I Can Has Cheeseburgers for the pic…
