As Bad as Hitler

Modern-day evils can’t match those of Adolf Hitler, but all too often on a college campus somebody makes the comparison. Here, one of our academic mice likens the campus police to Hitler because they enforce fire lane parking restrictions. The mouse thereby invites application of a form of Godwin’s Law: “The first side to bring up Hitler in a discussion loses.” (As originally formulated, Godwin’s law said only: “As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1.”)
