Is that what Nazi memorabilia is these days….”Eclectic”? should we all be eclectic now, Father?

    War memorabilia is far from eclectic collecting – it’s quite specific. Whereas collecting anything from the Nazi period could be termed eclectic as it can cover a wide range of items from doormats to buttons. Given that it was quite a short period of extremism, some would say fascinating – with really powerful branding – the items are highly collectible. Being a collector does not align you with the politics that your collection represents however, as has been many times mentioned.

    It’s not racist to buy stuff like this. They’re not paying and thereby funding the NSDAP like. Artefacts is artefacts.

    I mean it’s obviously fascistic to ponce about your house in it after, but buying a British army pin or something from 1916 doesn’t make you a dissident republican.

        It kinda was, but I, for one will forgive. Unlike the Nazis, who would have you confront a firing squad, etc…
