The swastika very well be an "occult machine". It may also function as 
a designer logo for tennis wear. My analysis does not address 
aesthetic function, rather its cultural appropriation and use - 
particularly the attendant meanings gathered during its most recent 
bastardization. 

The original post simply recommends a more commonsense sensitivity to 
current and accepted meaning. Suggesting thereƕs "more" to a swastika 
only underscores the fact that multiple meanings are not only possible 
but inevitable.
