DAILYKENN.com -- So how did Hitler come to power?
According to Danielle Allen says she has the answer.
Published by washingtonpost.com, Allen said,
Like any number of us raised in the late 20th century, I have spent my life perplexed about exactly how Hitler could have come to power in Germany. Watching Donald Trump’s rise, I now understand.That's a classic example of Godwin's Law.
According to Mike Godwin, the longer the debate, the greater the liklihood that someone will evoke the name of Hitler or Nazism. Sooner or later someone will compare someone or something to Hitler or Nazism.
Mike Godwin is an attorney and his law began to proliferate in 1990 after he observed conversations on Usenet newsgroups.
