    It’s a bit bizarre that if you have a hammer and sickle on your shirt it’s a kind of edgy cool, but if you had a swastika on your shirt you risk being fired/cancelled/arrested

      Don’t you think that depends where you go? In some parts of the world you’d probaly be killed for it

          Also depends where you go I guess. I just know that in the Balkans they are more chill about it, because Tito was one of the ‘friendlier’ dictators. So some people wish to go back to a united Yugoslavia. Makes sense considering the rising ethnic tensions in the post-yugoslavia days. Most of the eastern european countries however will probably have a more negative stance on this (Poland, CZ etc).

          And my bet is that you’ll definitely have a hard time in Indonesia, because they still make the communist responsible for a lot of deaths that happened in the 60s - good documentary about it is ‘The Act of Killing’. Also Cambodia… dunno about Thailand

      ML tend to kill themselves. Nazis and fascists tend to kill everyone. Other than that they are both violent and suppressive authoritarian regimes. I think the killing everyone part though is why Nazis are generally less accepted.
