lines of incitement to violence.
I never studied Modern History at school, but some of my friends did. They
had some required reading from _Mein Kampf_, and there was at least one copy
available in the school library. Does it contain direct incitement to
violence? Or is it only indirect?
Regarding swastikas -- they're still in use, if not by the Girl Guides.
Went to lunch with some acquaintances and their baby wore a dress with a
swastika embroidered on the back. My initial reaction was shock. Any time
I want to ask about Nazi atrocities I can ring up my Dad. Of course, common
sense returned -- it's a good luck symbol in some cultures, as it was in
this case. Can't see the point in censoring symbols anyway.
