in political debate:

"Nazism" in current Russian political debate, performs the same function as "Communism" used to perform in US political debate.

All you had to do was successfully label someone, some group, or some country as communist, and it was open season to eliminate them by all means available.

The more unstable the state, the greater the need to define external enemies as a threat and a focus for national unity.

Only mature and secure societies can avoid "othering" some groups. Inclusion is an act of strength as well as of love.
