Hitler & Swastika: The murder of a symbol…


Hitler did not only murder people. He also murdered a symbol.

Swastika was for thousands of years a symbol of the movement of the cosmos, a symbol of good luck.

Now no one can use it anymore. Now the world has stopped turning.

Dark deeds have dark consequences…

Can someone be brave enough? The world must start moving again…

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!

    1. The point of the post is to refer to how symbols might be misused. Just that. Do you disagree with that?

      PS. I live in Greece. Believe me, almost all Greeks have some relatives who died while fighting against Nazis.

  1. Yes you are absolutely right that Hitler has used this symbol after killing it’s very authentic symbolization. The anti-clockwise movement symbol when it was printed on their paper and get traveled to Germany as clock-wise symbol. It resulted destructiveness and Hitler rather became great he becomes cruel and destructive.
    However, as you said Hitler has misused the very interesting yet great symbol of existence. Thank you
