    There's a surprise.

    From Hammurabi to Hitler, from Nero to Stalin, the State has been torturing and killing and starving and spying.

    It has been the same for 4,000 years.

    And you would have happily used the same sophistic and cynical arguments to have defended any of those regimes had you been present.  We know you.

    Humans can be better.  They must be better.  We must first throw off our chains to learn how that is possible.

    And your kind is one of the most annoying of the links in those chains.

      Here, we discuss differences in opinion. We don't compare people to Nazi sympathizers.

      Republicans are far more socialist than Democrats. Just because they want to redistribute the wealth upwards does not make it any better.

        Godwin's Law? The above commentor rightfully talked about a trend that has lasted more than 4000 years. I would have used Stalin and Bush but that is just me.

          I wouldn't have given a troll rating - in fact, I wouldn't have even responded - if his point had been about trends in regimes. I gave the HR because he made his comment specifically directed at another user.
