I guess what the other ~600 million people there think doesn't count, because the eco-nazis know best, just like their NSDAP predecessors.

Argument ended, and not just because of Godwin's law.

Yeah, one side references the Nazi's, and the other side responds with McCarthy. However, only one side can see the truth in both. And I believe it's explained excellently in one of Coulters books.

Godwin is a tool. The plain fact of the matter is that when it comes to making a point that "...and THIS is how things turn really bad if taken to the extreme", there is no better analogy than the Nazis.

That's using the Nazis as a proper debating device -- but just calling someone a Nazi (which is the proper invocation of Godwin's Law) is the refuge of fools and knaves, because it's intended to end the debate.

Your opinion may differ, but you're wrong.
