“I do not believe that the solution to our problem is simply to elect the right people. The important thing is to establish a political climate of opinion which will make it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing. Unless it is politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing, the right people will not do the right thing either, or if they try, they will shortly be out of office.”
― Milton Friedman

“Human beings are born with different capacities. If they are free, they are not equal. And if they are equal, they are not free.”

Lesser Angels of Death

Conversations with Mengele's heirs.
Godwin's Law is suspended when the behavior being compared is sufficiently congruent.
  • Medical "professionals"? Check.
  • Subsidized by the State? Check.
  • Human vivisection? Check.
  • Laughing about the dismemberment procedure? Check.
  • Awareness of the moral implications?
Dr. Lisa Harris, the medical director of Planned Parenthood of Michigan:
"Given that we actually see the fetus the same way, and given that we might actually both agree that there’s violence in here. . . . Let’s just give them all the violence, it’s a person, it’s killing, let’s just give them all that."
Check.

One difference: Mengele wasn't doing it for profit.
