How does one "literally imply" something?
Besides, even if you follow his bizarre analogy Bartlett didn't say what you said he did. Not that Bartlett's invocation of the Holocaust was remotely sensible or appropriate, but he was pointing to the Holocaust as the end result of a society's abandonment of its collective senses. Bartlett was pointing to the government's financing of student loans as an example of "starting to go down the wrong road," not the calamitous end result.
Not that this is the topic of this thread, but there's plenty
wrong with encouraging low-income students to rack up thousands of dollars in non-dischargeable education debt when the data increasingly shows that this debt burden will not be offset by increased earning power or even job prospects at all.
