To see their symbol to be mass marketed for a purpose opposite of what it was intended for.

However it is not only symbols. Revolutionary figureheads will be invited to the capital city to be given medals at highly publicized events for serving their government and having performed various good deeds opposite of what they have done.

Shameless bump.

An accurate depiction
