That Latin analogy could be extended to mention the development of the Latin language from its known origins into the "specialized" medieval derivatives. Might stretch it a bit too far, though, and I do not think I am the first to bring this up.

Anyway, here in Germany, whoever employs the Holocaust gun publicly against anything other then the far right is almost certain to have it backfire, regardless of its original target. The indignation complex is a very well trained one, though I honestly do not want to guess how it would / will turn out in this instance. But I will guess that Richard has very carefully considered the matter.
