Not to start an argument about the swastika, because, why the hell would I do that-

I just find it so strange that it's always the "ancient" religious meanings of the swastika.

Because they're also current religious meanings? It's a symbol that's still used, in a lot of contexts.

Now, the question of how that should or should not be carried over into the West is really complicated and, again, not something I actually want to get into, but it is a thing that's more complicated than "This used to mean a good thing, but then was totally reappropriated to mean a bad thing". Although that's probably true of almost all of these kinds of things, I guess.

Still not really something to slap on a shirt, in the West, but I guess my point is it being the cut and dry example is strange because it's one of the messiest I know of?
