LOL Yeah, I went there. LOL Hey, your post gave rise to a curious thought. Perhaps it is even a Koan. Let's assume that before Hitler's birth there was a fictional book that had a genocidal cult leader named Hitler. Then, decades later there was an ACTUAL genocical cult leader named Adolph Hiter. Would it have been Godwin's Law if people had claimed in the late 1930s (before WWII) that the real person Adolph Hitler was just like the fictional Hitler character in the novel? Meaning, would the fact that the discussion devolved into people drawing that comparison, thereby invoke Godwin's Law and therefore negate the truth and value of the real Hitler being compared to the fictional one, as a method of warning others? To wit, does Godwin's Law in any way diminish the value and truth of the comparison? LOL My mind goes places like that. It keeps life very interesting.
