The comparison was not the whole world war, just the organized tagging of individuals to control. It was fairly clear
The point is that when fascist governments were in power back then they actively 'tagged' people like cattle.. your looking at the specifics of genocide and murder because you read it in a book somewhere. The comparison is digital devices have become trackers for governments know one can deny this but more sinister is the mass gathering and collating of meta data through every aspect of your online life to create a 'profile' of a person. Of course its legal as its masked up in thousands of pages of EULA's that no normal person can understand
Nothing is wrong with you. A few privacy advocates and conspiracy theorists have their panties in a bunch over nothing new under the sun
you lost me at 'panties in a bunch' how very quaint. Its funny how Texans defend the flag so much. It is new, did we have a mass digital revolution in the 1930's ?
Also as a 'historian' the 40's were a more interesting period when referring to WW2
