Godwin’s Law (also known as Godwin’s Rule of Nazi Analogies) is a humorous observation made by Mike Godwin in 1990 which has become an Internet adage. It states: “As a Usenet discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches.
Just ask F1 boss Max Mosley who was caught on video with no less than five prostitutes. The news of the world published the video and story. “Mosley appears to be both dominated and submitting to the five hookers, who NOTW alleges were dressed both as Nazis and concentration camp prisoners. The 67-year-old, who has been married for 48 years, was at one point whipped so hard that the orgy had to be halted while a bandage was applied to stop his bleeding”.
The image caption says “Afterwards, whilst still naked, Mosley drinks a cup of tea with the hookers”
Beware, the comments rapidly turn into a load of nonsense about racing cars, maybe Godwin needs a new law to cover it. jalopnik.com
This sounds oddly familiar:
Many voters, seeking an outlet for their frustrations and an expression for their repudiation of parliamentary democracy which seemed incapable of keeping a government in power for more than a few months, began turning their support towards the far right and far left of the political spectrum, opting for extremist political parties such as the Nazi Party. The Nazis offered promises of strong authoritarian government in lieu of effete parliamentary republicanism, civil peace, radical changes to economic policy (including elimination of unemployment), restored national pride (principally through the repudiation of Versailles) and racial cleansing, implemented in part by active suppression of Jews and Marxists, all under the banner of national unity and solidarity in lieu of the partisan divisiveness of democracy and the class divisiveness of Marxism.
The makers of Call of Duy World at War are seemingly unaware that they have the swastika (or hackenkreuz) the wrong way around – they would’nt know in Germany as the symbol is banned there.
Once a day, Max Mosley types his name into Google. Perhaps somewhere in the world an article has been written about him. Or perhaps, once again, the search engine will turn up a photograph of Mosley half naked, surrounded by young women and whips. Britain’s High Court ruled years ago that these pictures were taken illegally, but they continue to be posted on the Internet. More often than not, they land on websites that no one would ever find — if it weren’t for Google, that giant search engine that does not forget.
