Germany has the Nazi symbol banned, not just because it is offensive but because allowing people to wave them around could breed Nazi sympathy. Although our culture does not really permit the government banning free speech it's an interesting analogue.

I think history belongs in the museum. The confederates lost, and just on a patriotism level I don't like the idea of that flag flying.
