I didn’t realise there was a stated law, or rule of thumb, in place concerning the use of Nazi analogies in a debate or online discussion, and that it dates all the way back to 1990.. 

Godwin’s Law: “As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one.”

Also stated as “The first to mention Hitler in a debate, loses”. 

Order has now been restored to my universe.
