Swastika emoji text symbols 卐 卍࿕࿖࿗࿘
|Copy from here|
First of all, good day to you, and I wish you a long and happy life and hope you wish the best to everybody too right now. I'll continue assuming that. And I'll assume that you know that some people can get very strongly triggered by a swastika. In a very negative way.
Swastika symbol, or as they now often call these things in text - emoji, sometimes written as swastica, svastika, svastica, svasti, even sauwastika (卍 specifically), and in German - hakenkreuz. We all think we know it. Nazi symbol invented by Hitler, right? Or is it? Ancient runes, anyone? I've made this article mainly for symbol copy-paste purposes, but I just had to expand it, because this symbol is just too rich in controversy and history not to. I was actually previously contacted by many a folk asking me to take it down from most places I could on my website, but I opted for free speech. 😛 And it's obviously not like I'm inciting any sort of hatred anywhere on my website. 😏 Yes, swastika emoji is often used by Westerners kind of like a cool decoration for black humour jokes, like "How did Hitler tie his shoes? .sǝᴉzʇouʞ ǝʅʇʇᴉʅ uI", or "Hitler visits the front and talks to a soldier. Hitler asks: "Friend, when you are in the front line under artillery fire, what do you wish for?" The soldier replies: "That you, my Fuhrer, stand next to me!"" and some less neutral ones that can get you fired at some places. Because, it's fine with me, but probably not so much with many social justice warriors and the politically correct. So think twice, my friend, think twice. 🤔 Anyways, while swastika had been a prominent sign in the West for ages thanks to it's great looks, it's not the place where it has been most used until Hitler decided to make it a symbol of Nazi Germany.
Also, certainly, there's a chance that my tip on how to easily look for interesting symbols in a fun way of simply drawing them and how to style text as bold, underlined, italic, small, upside down and all other sorts of fancy, including Fraktur, which was popular in Nazi Germany and was even the text font of 𝔄𝔡𝔬𝔩𝔣 ℌ𝔦𝔱𝔩𝔢𝔯'𝔰 ❞𝕸𝖊𝖎𝖓 𝕶𝖆𝖒𝖕𝖋❞ cover. There's a lot more to text symbols & emoji than different forms of swastika, of course you know that. But this is going to open up the world of text symbols and emoji to you even if you thought you knew all about text characters and fonts - I spent a whole year developing this tool specifically for that. Hooked? Check out my project TELL.WTF.
So what else does Swastika symbolize?
The word "swastika" comes from the Sanskrit svastika - "su" meaning "good," "asti" meaning "to be," and "ka" as a suffix. The swastika literally means "to be good", or less literally kind of like "lucky charm". You didn't think this elegant symmetrical symbol was invented by fascists, right?
The earliest archaeological evidence of swastika-shaped ornaments dates back to the Indus Valley Civilization of Ancient India as well as Classical Antiquity. It still remains widely used in Indian religions, specifically in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, primarily as a tantric symbol to evoke shakti or the sacred symbol of auspiciousness. Meanwhile In Slavic pagan cultures in Eastern Europe it was part of symbolism for the sun. While in China it was already in use more than 4000 years ago and by now has been a part of Chinese writing system for mīllennium. It's meaning for Chinese?
"Hate" Something like an ∞ infinity symbol means in maths - all, eternity.
If that's not enough to cleanse it's name, read a Wikipedia article on Swastika.
Swastika as a ꖦ Nazi symbol
I have a friend with a sort of mental condition. He's kind of like Hitler, only unpopular. If he came to the kind of political power Hitler had he'd execute and isolate millions of people. Not on the basis of whether that person considers herself a jew, though, more like people who aren't sort of as civilized and progressive as he is. If he were to live at that time and place, he'd be same as Hitler, with Jews and all, no doubt. I'm telling this, because you might think that there's something magical and highly extraordinary to Hitler. However, I'm pretty certain that psychologists face these kinds of people more or less on a daily basis. It's a symptom of psychological trauma and isolation. Though, in Split/Glass movies they spin it like a good superhero building thing, yeah, these things can give you power, but that power is most often the destructive one, not constructive.
Knowing how people gain strong political following is crucial. Incite strong emotional reactions. That's the rule. And that's not just the rule that Hitler, or Trump used to attain political power. That's the main rule used to design the news and all the tons of stuff you find and repost on the internet every day. Being controversial sometimes, opinionated, making everything seem like the end of the world is upon us, sparking strong emotions of anger and resentment. That sells as much as sex. That gets 👍 likes, ♥ hearts and 🔃 reposts and generates discussions which make the problems seem real. That gets you audience, that gets you followers. Because, when you build a story about the end of the world and your listener believes you, he's going to share it. Because, it's important. It's a cleaver trick. Do repost this, because this is important for others to know and understand! 😉 It's all about storytelling, eliciting strong emotional reactions and immersing people into your crafted vision of deeply worrying reality. A long-term excercise I highly advise: start noticing the stories you and others consume and produce, start noticing the primal emotions they elicit. Hitler had his stories based in mostly bad science of the time sprinkled with hate probably incited by some psychological trauma and stuff. He wasn't a strong tough guy, or an oligarch. Just a guy who had some powerful resonating stories to tell, some backed up by the science of that time, good enough to persuade many of the brightest German minds that later helped develop some of the most advanced war technologies back then. It wasn't swastika symbol hypnotising people into becoming Nazi Zombies.
Nowadays, public display of swastika is outlawed in some countries. Notably Germany, for which it historically used to be a national symbol. Because, Hitler's sick personal obsession with Jews and a deep hate for most of humankind apart from some Western Europeans and Japanese had tainted swastika, as a symbol of hate, abuse and unnecessary violence to Westerners. However, for people who use it nowadays in countries previously occupied by Nazi Germany and those that fought Nazis in World War 2, as well as some neutral faraway Asian places it's more often like a fashion statement symbol, often in a form of a swastika tatoo, due to it simply being aesthetically pleasing and having a strong association with power and dominance. Or sometimes as a powerless cry against their country being overrun by people with traditions and culture that goes against their core principles. Most often in such cases, a cry against their government's politics.
