Re: “Offense Taken

1) In regards to Nazi memorabilia on the walls: Fallout has had a WWII theme for years, representing all sides of the conflict that shaped the modern world. They have far more American memorabilia of the war than anything else, with the majority being Allied Forces posters. However, they also think their patrons are intelligent enough to not knee-jerk at the representation of a historical period. They don't feel the need to hide an important and defining part of history from delicate eyes that seem to think ANY display of a swastika is Nazi promotion. It's history. Grow up.

2) In regards to the wall: The wall was a single-piece collection of scraps and signs, painted to represent roving gangs that had passed through the abandoned building the Tribe was partying in at the moment. One gang, let's say Neo-Nazi's, rolls through after the end of the world and sets up shop. They mark their territory. Then they get run off by Neo-Panthers, who in turn claim and mark the building. Then Neo-Cons, and so on. The post-apocalypse is littered with countless gangs of various creeds and flaws.

3) The unity behind Doomsday: From the beginning, the leader of the Doomsday Tribe, Will, brought together disparate elements and unified them. At the end of a world torn by divides and hate, he made them one. He made them whole and strong. This unity continues to this day, with the graffiti representing where "we" as a people in the days leading up to the end, and in the confusing times that followed, had come from. It represented the hate and horror that brought mankind to its lowest. Where we are coming from, not where we are going. Anyone that says otherwise is an ignorant outsider or an pissed-off idiot with an ulterior agenda.
