Thanks for the comments and the TP from meek.

@h1k765.  The x as swastika. The conversation has been discussed here before. But the x has been intentionally designed in deference to the original ancient meaning in Buddhist traditions for thousands of years. In its upright position with counter-clockwise arms, the symbol stands for prosperity and good fortune for all. 

It only takes a slight transformation and rotation to corrupt meaning - to the point where this is all the world knows now, and everything that looks like it must be it. Flip the original symbol horizontally and rotate it 45 degrees, and it stands for prosperity and good fortune for only a few, at the expense of everyone else. A symbol meant to stand for unity toward an auspicious future of mankind, is twisted to symbolize its greatest separation and division into depravity. 

As a self-professed purveyor of peace, my intention is to increase awareness of our own symbology towards a realization of seeing worldly things as they actually are beyond our own judgement. The dark is getting darker, but the light is getting lighter, making things appear as either black or white. This makes it harder to see all the gray scales in between, and thus prevents an accurate perception of the big picture. I think this is important for us as font creators, who develop the core elements of alphabetic symbols with emotion and meaning that visualize thought forms.
