    Swastika Decriminalized in Lithuania



    Should the twelve year reign of a political regime tarnish a cultural symbol thousands of years old forever?

    A Lithuanian court decriminalized the display of the Swastika, saying that the twelve year political reign of the Nazi party should not define a symbol thousands of years old.



    Historically in western civilization the Swastika is a symbol of righteousness and good luck. It was also a symbol of the god Thor, and later made into a symbol of Christ. With a clockwise rotation it symbolizes the sun. With a counterclockwise facing, it represents the moon and resurrection.

    Today, millions of people the world over find it insulting that a deeply rooted historical symbol should be declared offensive because one political regime lasting only twelve years used it.

    In the United States, prior to WWII, it was widely used by Coca-Cola, the US Air Force, numerous Casinos, and dozens of American Indian tribes.

    The Happy Cross.. aka.. Hakenkreuz! Swastika!

    Fascinating how specific symbols are banned or manipulated or praised or whatever?

    This website gives an extensive overview of the worlds most probably easiest to recognize symbol. Plenty of excellent pictures in here that will surprise some of you and may probably not surprise others..

    Make of this what you will of course but this is a very informative website well worth viewing.

    I've had conflicting reports on the penalty of giving Nazi/Roman salute in public in Germany. I've heard that you can get 3 years jail time. The other was more of a repeat offense kind of thing where the penalty just starts as a small fine.

    They should be banning communist symbols. Not only has it caused an incredible amount of death and suffering but is a foreign concept as well.

    I don't think criminalizing the swastika symbol really will stop the logic of racism or nationalism around the world. There are other symbols and other things that can represent your cause other than a crooked cross. Face it the symbol is now tarnished. forget it the symbol and stop worrying about it. Name the first thing I think of mind when I see a swastika is nazism so not much will probably change.
