The anti-war activists obviously comes from the anti-war movement which is individuals against military force during a conflict. From the depiction on the card it is clear the most recognizable group that is also anti-war is the hippies. The hippies came around in the mid-1960s in the United States and eventually spread to other areas. They were also commonly known for love (more geared in the direction of lust and sexual fornication), drugs, and the infamous “peace” symbol.

One of the most known incidents was at Kent State where in April 30, 1970 it was announced that 150,000 more troops was sent to Vietnam stirring mass protests. The incident included protesters setting fire to a ROTC then in May 4, twenty-eight guards opened fire at them; four were killed and nine injured. In effect, this escalated the protests causing 500 campuses to be closed. More information can ge gathered here: Kent State Incident – History.

Something to look at more closely within this topic is the peace symbols. The first of these is the hand formation to represent peace which can be seen below:

This hand symbol is said to be what began as a Satanic benediction during rituals. Looking at this closer we can see it obviously forms the letter “V” which in Roman numerals is the number 5. Adam Weishaupt is claimed to use it in the Illuminati for representing “The Five Laws.” This is significant for when Satan exalted himself over God five times:

“For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds: I will be like the most High.” – Isaiah 14:13-14 KJV

The number 5 is very important in the occult, such as the pentagram which is a 5 pointed star, the pentagon which is a five sided shape not to mention a very important building to the government.

Another symbol, which can be seen on the man’s necklace in the image above, is the peace sign.

The peace sign was designed during the time of the Nuclear Disarmament for protest by Gerald Holtom. He stated that the sign was originally supposed to be the Christian cross but stated the idea was rejected by religious leaders so he claims that, instead, he drew it in representation of a person in despair pleading (someone bent down with their arms outstretched on the ground). This idea, he claims, was taken from Goya’s peasant against a firing squad.

The peace sign has also been speculated to represent a broken upside down cross, which can be a good hypothesis, however lets look at just the symbol within the circle and what is has been associated with throughout history.

The symbol inside the circle is indeed upside down, an upside down Nordic character of Odin’s Alphabet (aka runes) as seen below. Also note that Odin was the main Nordic mythological god.

Runes- algiz rune

Runes are defined as magical symbols which looking into the etymology of rune the Old English meaning was “secret, mystery, dark mysterious statement, or (secret) council.” More etymology on the word can be read here: Rune – Etymology Dictionary. This definition already doesn’t sound too great but let’s focus back on the specific rune character.

The specific rune used in the peace sign is known in origin from Odin’s Alphabet. Three different versions the runes will be looked at below: first the Elder Futhark, Younger Futhark, and then Armanen Futhark. The word futhark is commonly known as a word to describe runic alphabet. The word was formed from the first six characters of the alphabet being F, U, Th, A, R, K.

The Elder Futhark is estimated to have been used from the 2nd to the 8th century used by Germanic tribes and Migration period dialects. The Younger Futhark (aka Scandinavian runes) that was born from the Elder Futhark which is estimated to have been used from 8th to 12th century and usually associated with the Viking age. Last, the Armanen Futhark was announced by Guido von List in a book titled “The Secret of Runes.” It is not associated with the Younger Futhark but based upon it. Guido von List claimed these were revealed to him upon a vision and was eventually adopted by Heinrich Himmler who had an interest in German mysticism. To this day they are still used in relation to esotericism, national socialism, and neopaganism.  Below are the different understandings to the rune.

  • Elder Futhark (2nd to 8th centuries) – Named Algiz; Definition: protection
  • Younger Futhark (around 9th century) – Named maðr “man”; Definition: delight of man, an augmentation of the earth, adorner of ships
  • Armanen Futhark (Nazi Germany) – Named Leben rune; Definition: Life, was used to denote date of birth on documents and grave markers

  • Elder Futhark – was not present
  • Younger Futhark – Named yr “yew”; Definition: bent bow, brittle iron, giant of the arrow
  • Armanen Futhark – Named Toten rune; Definition: Death, turned over version of life, used to denote date of death on documents and grave markers

Sources for the rune information are below:

In conclusion of the symbol and runes, one last dig can reveal the secret. Runes in general, from the reference of its word origin and definition, is connected to secrets and dark mysteries or in other words are used in witchcraft and spells. A quote from a witch website states:

“Runes are an alphabetic script used by the peoples of Northern Europe from the first century C.E. until well into the Middle Ages. In addition to their use as a written alphabet, the runes also were a system of symbols used for magic and divination.” Source:

In magic, the purpose of the Algiz/Elhaz rune is that of activated higher consciousness, protection, confident warding away of destruction or harm, also said to increase the field of one’s magical power. Use for anything you want protected.

Now the important part. Here is what the bible says on these matters.

“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolarty, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God” ~ Galatians 5:19-21 KJV

“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consultor with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.” ~ Deuteronomy 18:10-12 KJV
