My understanding is that the direction of the swastika "spin" is found in both 
forms in ancient reliefs. The idea that Hitler got it wrong is just propaganda 
- highly effective propaganda as so many people believe it.
 

 In most (probably all) European countries the display of swastikas is 
outlawed. I've got a swastika on a Sri Yantra disk and also on some old, 
pre-war hardback books (fiction titles); they have swastikas on the spine.

 According to what I've read, the word 'swastika' does not occur in Vedic 
Sanskrit. Some of the early examples of the swastika originated in the Indus 
Valley around 2400 BCE and in south-eastern paleolithic Europe over 10,000 
years ago.

 True. On a related topic, I do wonder if the swastika can ever be 
rehabilitated. It has a long history across the world, in many different 
traditions. In Hinduism, the swastika maybe signifies Ganesha?
 
 
 To let the sign be completely absorbed into Nazi iconography is to give up on 
a powerful symbol.
 
 
 
 
 Maybe one day . . .

"Nationalsocialismus," the Nazi Party. Modern organizations whose ideology is 
similar to that of the Nazis incorporate the phrase into their titles to make 
what they stand for explicit.

 No matter what you mean by "national socialism," folks are going to 
instinctively recoil from it because of the horrific echoes it evokes (the way 
a German audience recoiled from Raja Emanuel's use of the term "Invincible 
Germany," but in this case worldwide).
 
 
 It really can't be sanitized. Maybe in a hundred years when memories have 
faded, it'll be usable again, but you're asking for trouble if you use it now.
