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.

rehabilitated. It has a long history across the world, in many

To let the sign be completely absorbed into Nazi iconography is to 
give up on a powerful symbol.

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.

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.

 Doesn't look like a swastika to me - typical Twitter hysteria. Twitter is 
becoming ever more like mob rule.

 The point of the video is shocking.  But who is the source of the facts being 
presented?  Assuming that the facts are right, the top one percent earners in 
the USA should be taxed more than the middle class. 
 

 But we've already seen that the Republicans are not going to raise the taxes 
for the rich.  They would rather shutdown the government and not pay the 
government debts, even if it destroys the country's economy.
