It is really bad the Asian ex-USSR republics, for most of it, didn't clean up and didn't eradicate symbols of communism like the Baltic states, Georgia, Ukraine etc.

I can see that we still haven't reached the level of high developed Russia, they even have tables at bus stops!

Maybe they kept them as historical memorials. There are still fascist symbols in Italy, kept for that purpose even if fascism is outlawed in Italy.

And hammer and sickle is still legally adopted by left wing extremists in western countries:

The pic above is merely informative and doesn't have any propaganda aim. I personally dislikes both far right and far left extremists.

Even in western world we usually don't have tables at bus stops, sometimes even benches are missing.

Whenever I see anything the PCI symbol, I remind me of how they pushed a death and terror campaign in Italy, including many "stragi" and the horrendous death of a PM in 1978! And I'm sick to think I have some friends who honestly think Marx had/has answers for anything now that the country is in a deep financial crisis.

You should have the same horror feeling when you see swastikas or fasci littori. Although ideologically opposited, they brought the same things in Europe during the 20th century: wars, death, repression and povertry. And "stragi" in Italy between 1969 and the 80s were made both by red and black terrorists.

Those countries are still underdeveloped and ruled by antidemocratic or half-democratic governments. I think they have most serious problems than this bus stop that is no more than a curious thing that who go to Dushanbe see and photograph.

I remember seeing "viva il duce" in Padova a few years ago, my memory says it was in the courtyard of university, on this wall maybe, but I'll have to check my photos.

Like in many other places everywhere around the word, there are also fasces in Ljubljana, thanks to Austrians (presidential and government HQ) and, indirectly, French, here's a website with pictures, fighting against these "fascist symbols of state authority".

Sure!

But I don't think any political party uses swastikas, and the use of fascist allusions is heavily frowned upon, whereas communists symbols kept seen as "cool" or "alternative".

Hammer and sickle is illegal in some eastern countries such Hungary, Poland and the Baltics. That's because they suffered for the real comunism.

I've been away for a couple of weeks, so sorry if this is late, but may I point out that the issue here wasn't just "a railroad in Pennsylvania" but a railroad running down a main street in a major city? (I've seen that poster in local-history books, by the way...)
