Charles Bellamy, Edward Bellamy, and Francis Bellamy were related and were influential national socialists in the late 1800's in the U.S. Charles Bellamy (author of "A Moment of Madness") and Edward Bellamy (author of the novel "Looking Backward") and Francis Bellamy (author of the "Pledge of Allegiance") were socialists.  Edward and Charles were brothers, and Francis was their cousin. Francis and Edward were both self-proclaimed National Socialists and they supported the "Nationalism" movement in the USA, the "Nationalist" magazine, the "Nationalist Educational Association," and their dogma of "military socialism," and Edward inspired the "Nationalist Party" (in the USA).

In 1885, Charles Bellamy wrote The Way Out: Suggestions for Social Reform (Putnams). The author Arthur Morgan (Edward Bellamy's biographer) said that it "in many respects is as daring and radical in its proposals as is Edward Bellamy's own utopia."  Edward's book came later, in 1888.

In 1850, Edward Bellamy was born (and died in 1898); In 1852, Charles Joseph Bellamy was born (and died in 1910); In 1855, Francis Bellamy was born (and died in 1931).

Charles, Edward and Francis were each successful writers who used the medium to promote the growth of government.  

Charles Bellamy was an author and newspaper publisher.  In 1880 Charles Bellamy and his brother, Edward, founded the Springfield Daily News in their Massachusetts hometown of Chicopee.  Both brothers went on to author books. Edward left the paper after two years to write literature.

Both brothers became lawyers. Charles J. Bellamy wrote Everybody’s Lawyer published by Peoples Publishing Co. in Springfield, MA. It gave summaries on the “More Practical Parts of Common Law” such as Suing, Marriage, Divorce, Testimony, Railroad Travel and more.

Other books by Charles Bellamy include: An Experiment in Marriage: A Romance; Were They Sinners?: A novel from Author's Publishing Company (1890) or from Authors Library; A Moment of Madness: A novel, from the publisher A.L. Burt (1888) or The Manhattan series; and The Breton mills: A romance, from the publisher G.P. Putnam's sons (1879).

1916 The Wonder Children, Their Quests and Curious Adventures, by Charles J. Bellamy. The MacMillan Company. 321 pages. Stories of Christmas Eve, Three Fishes, Enchanted Cave, Bad Boy, Golden Key, Magic Mirror, Boy who Teased, Underworld and Three Wishes.

It is unfortunate that all of the Bellamys used newspapers, books and pledges to reveal their desire to use the government to promote their socialist dogma.  That attitude influenced many other socialists in the USA, and worldwide.

Similar to newspaper owners today, the brothers used the Springfield Daily News to promote socialism. Charles also wrote several books critical of the social and industrial conditions  (See the above-mentioned "The Breton Mills"). Much of the brothers' analysis of the American economy came from watching changes in Chicopee Massachusetts during the 1870's onward.

Edward and Francis were self-proclaimed National Socialists and they supported the "Nationalism" movement in the USA, the "Nationalist" magazine, the "Nationalist Educational Association," (NEA) and their dogma of "military socialism," and Edward inspired the "Nationalist Party" (in the USA) and their dogma influenced socialists in Germany, and the Pledge was the origin of the Nazi salute. "Nazi" means "National Socialist German Workers' Party." A mnemonic device is the swastika. Although the swastika was an ancient symbol, Professor Rex Curry discovered that it was also used sometimes by German National Socialists to represent "S" letters for their "socialism." Hitler altered his own signature to use the same stylized "S" letter for "socialist" and similar alphabetic symbolism still shows on Volkswagens.

Dr. Curry showed that the USA's first Pledge used a straight-arm salute and it was the origin of the salute of the monstrous National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazis). Curry helped to establish that the salute was not an ancient Roman salute, and that there never was any so-called ancient Roman salute. The Pledge began with a military salute that then stretched out toward the flag. Due to the way that both gestures were used, the military salute led to the Nazi salute. The Nazi salute is an extended military salute.

Edward Bellamy's book "Looking Backward" was translated into every major language including the languages of those countries that became home to totalitarian socialism and the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part) under the National Socialist German Workers' Party (21 million dead), the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (62 million dead), and the Peoples' Republic of China (35 million dead). It is easy to see why anyone would want to cover all of that up, but it should not be covered up.  That is one of the reasons why the Bellamys are known as the first American Nazis.  

In the USA, the Bellamy dogma supported a government takeover of education. Regardless of what the brothers might have wished, their ideas in support of government schools enabled government's schools to impose segregation by law and teach racism as official policy. The USA's behavior was an example for three decades before the Nazis. As under Nazism, the Jehovah's Witnesses, and blacks and the Jewish and others in the USA attended government schools that dictated segregation, taught racism, and persecuted children who refused to perform the straight-arm salute and robotically chant the Pledge. Some kids were expelled from government schools and had to use the many better alternatives. There were acts of violence. When Jesse Owens competed in the 1936 Olympics in Germany, his neighbors attended segregated government schools where they saluted the flag with the Nazi salute. The U.S. practice of official racism even outlasted the horrid party. And the schools and the Pledge still exist.

The Breton Mills (1879) is by Charles Joseph Bellamy. It was popular with readers in the labor movement. It portrays a romantically doomed labor organizer who marries above his position and then suffers for it. It is antistrike and invokes what some have described as a profit-sharing plan. The mill-owner hero, Philip Breton, suffers a worker outbreak that he believes will erupt into violence against mill property. In the workers' response to the reforms that are mentioned, and in the romance plot, the author offers only pessimism.

Curran threatens to usurp both Breton's management and Breton's emotional life. Curran whipped up the strike threat, and then married Breton's well-born love interest.

In "Labor's Text: The Worker in American Fiction," the author Laura, Hapke states "Breton pardons Curran the agitator and the rival alike. In a fantasy of labor's ideal relation to management Breton's offered reorganization of the mill and of dividends based on skill level are met with wild enthusiasm."

"In a work world gone awry, however, 'the glad shouts of the poor ringing in his ears" cannot put things right. In a moment of verisimilitude, Breton points out that workers will see little raise in pay or shortening of hours. But rather than look to Breton's noble patience, they visit Breton's home to complain about their conditions. Perhaps worse in the Bellamy worldview, they leave dirt marks on the carpets and curtains."

"In this conservative vision of providence, Curran, punished by fate for aspiring to cross-class union, weakens and dies. He leaves the members of an "inert" and presumably pliable workforce to keep their dirty feet off the carpets of their betters."

Page 72: "Harriet Beecher Stowe herself in 'We and Our Neighbors' (1895) devoted many pages to anxieties about the morality of Maggie the Irish serving girl, as did, less generously, make foes of labor like Charles Joseph Bellamy in 'The Breton Mills" (1879).
