Nothing has inherent meaning

Political rally or target practice?


Or this:


How can any meaning attach to things? In one context it is understood commonly as one meaning to have a head on a sign, in the next context it means entirely something different.

People are ready to fight and die for the meaning of things that are perfectly absent of meaning.  Meaning is an ablative concept.
