    Yeah, the wikipedia link was overkill.

    I'm convinced there are people who search the forum looking for references to Hitler just so they can mention Godwin's Law.

The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Heh. If the search hit signatures, I'd say we should sig it, just to fuck with them.

    I'm confused. So is it okay to use the tired argument of comparing anything to Hitler, but not okay to call it out as a tired argument by pointing out that it even has its own internet definition?

    Who said anything like this?

    That is correct. Well done. *gold star*

    Making Hitler comparisons on the internet in pretty weak, but I don't think Jack was being serious.

    No, it's just not okay to feel smart for doing it.

    It's sort of like deliberately smacking someone in the face for accidentally elbowing you. Sure, you returned the exact amount of pain you were given, but the motive is entirely different. Not the best analogy, but it's at least an exit off the highway that goes there.

    Sorry... I didn't like Hitler's good name being associated with Obama like that.

    Stop analyzing me! You are never correct! And I have to correct you even when it makes me look hateful and biased!

    There is a great deal of commonality between Obama and Hitler in technique. Anyone who says they don't both have a cult of personality is oblivious.
