Paul's Law

I'm sure most of you who spend any real time on this here innernets thing are aware of Godwin's Law. From Wikipedia:

As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one.
I have a new law which is similar and seems just as sound:

The more heated a discussion about the disparities of wealth distribution, the probability of the description "apartheid" being applied approaches one.

Had to get it out there before someone else noticed.

I already had you bookmarked to read. I will look for Paul's law in future. I am guessing you are "Guilty, as charged" for introducing me to Godwin's law too: Godwin convergence|12.5.09 @ 12:39PM|#
You know, Hitler captivates and infuriates people today too.
