Yes, Godwin was right. However, I think that its time that we as a society start educating the public on how their attitude towards other people groups - race, diet, sexual orientation, and so on - is exactly how Hitler started out. He only started out disliking the Jews and it grew to hate, discrimination and then finally, murder.
Is society likely to round up Vegans and murder them? No, except those who are allergic to any animal product, is more likely to be murdered if bullied or kissed (leaving out the "or worse" case) or some person blatantly disregarded the "allergy" as being a "non-issue". I still call this murder in my books. And there has been a legal case, where the allergic person won the court case. The person who passed away, was served a fish dish instead of his order. It was a mistake, and the family almost didn't persue it. The family wanted to use the winnings to help educate others. What came out was better staff training at many restaurants in dealing with food allergies - which was what they wanted. Allergic Living Magazine did an article on this. I got the link in my email and can't post it here because its the wrong kind of link. (Special link tied to me.)
Society is most likely only to go so far as to ban us from their restaurants and social gatherings out of fear that they will become "like us". Still, getting along and having peace amongst all, should be the ultimate goal, with them allowing us to exist without them being offended because we exist.
