All Changed, Changed Utterly: Thoughts on the Eve of Donald Trump’s Inauguration.

By   /  January 21, 2017  /  Chris Trotter, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  53 Comments

I have long considered those who cry “Godwin” to be not only foolish but dangerous. Anyone who attempts to prevent people learning from one of the most terrible periods of human history is, objectively speaking, a fascist. Genuine progressives do not obey “Godwin’s Law”.
