Re: Swiss decide not to ban Nazi symbols

A ban on the public display of Nazi symbols such as the swastika was rejected by the Swiss Council of States on Tuesday after an eight-year fight by politicians and associations to introduce a legal change.

Read the full article: Swiss decide not to ban Nazi symbols
I'm African American and I don't support a ban on these symbols. I think it is better to know what your enemy is doing then to send it underground, in hiding. Truth is I'm offended by the symbol, but not so offended I want the government telling me what I should feel offended by. Maybe one day they will feel offended by a symbol I want to show. I think the "less gatekeepers" to personal freedom the better. As long as these people are not directly endangering me, directly threatening me, etc. Let them be idiots.

All of us also have the right to counter protest their ignorance.
