There's an old net proverb that says that the merit of a thread is inversly
proportional to the number of times the Nazi regime is mentionned in it.
To be more specific, when someone is attacking a *philosophical* argument
by mentioning the Nazis the implication, whether she meant it or not, is that
doubting whatever has been
put to doubt is illegitimate, that it condones a crime. Should I consult a lawyer
before making my philosophy?
more specifically, what Nazis get to do with the nature of reality?
I first learned about the holocaust from my Grandma; can I built
a metaphysical system on her back? Let me try: '*She* was there, therefore,
*I* am right, and you'd better keep silent, otherwise, I will call upon her memory
to silence your voice. '
Isn't that undisputable?
