Historical parallels are not always historical repetition. Sometimes they are coincidence.

Sometimes parallels rhyme.

I see more than a single parallel with the recent house sit-in to keep American manufacturers from selling weapons to ISIS.

The Party is in a death spiral.

Like a moth, it circles the flame, helpless, unable to stop itself.
