Anthology of Analogies

Have you noticed that historical analogies, for some people, have all but replaced political ideology? Ross Douthat has too, and he points out in a dynamite WSJ piece, defining people according to whether they think the present circumstances best echo '19, '38, '42, '48, or '72.

Call me a 1942ist, with a hint of creeping '48ism.
