On Comparisons to Hitler

The information in this webpage should be taken with a grain of salt.

Introduction

In politics, the bickering game of adult rabble-rousing, a comparison too frequently made is Adolf Hitler. Being seen as a universally hated and hateable evil person, comparing your opponent to Hitler is a quick and easy way to make them seem horrible. However, many question the accuracy of these comparisons. Their questions shall be answered with the mathematical formulas presented in my essay, “On Mathematical Applications in the 3-Axis Political Model.”

The Lists

Making the List

Now, to judge these comparisons, a list of all frequently-made comparisons must be composed. Wikipedia has helped us by composing a list on its article, “Nazi analogies.” Some entries on the list cannot be included, however, because the entities defined are not specific. How, for example, could we consider the political views of all treatments of animals? Eliminating such indeterminable entities leaves us with these:

Related entities are also compared to Hitler:

And then there are the others:

Results Analysis

Now, it is time to focus on the highest and lowest results!

The Klu Klux Klan, quite unsurprisingly, is very much like Adolf Hitler. Just like Adolf Hitler, they wish to kill all members of marginalized groups. The only difference is that the KKK is expressley more anti-communist than Hitler was.

The ones least like Adolf Hitler were Social Justices Warriors. While SJWs are completely totalitarian in order to enforce their worldview like Hitler was, they are extremely ultra-progressive. Of course, Hitler was extremely reactionary, so they are complete opposites there. And while Hitler was capitalist-leaning, SJWs tend to prefer economies that remove (or try to, anyway) class structures and other systemic barriers. This makes them much prefer communism and socialism.

Conclusion

In the end, this is not the best way to compare things to Hitler. That requires considerate analysis of personality and policy, which is something just three numbers could never do. There’s no quick and easy solution for identifying totalitarianism, reactionism, and fascism.
