The book "Apparitions of Things to Come: Edward Bellamy's Tales of Mystery & Imagination" is a collection of short stories by the national socialist Edward Bellamy. They provide eye-popping background information for greater study of the growth of government and socialism in the USA and everywhere.

According to the introduction, Frederick Bellamy (Edward's brother), "introduced Edward to Albert Brisbane, the old warhorse of American Fourierism, whose views Edward is said to have found highly interesting (citing the book "Edward Bellamy abroad," by Sylvia Bowman). 

The introduction to "Apparitions" was written by Franklin Rosemount, and his provocative comments explore the continuity between these early tales and Bellamy's later socialist influence worldwide.  Rosemount even confesses that Bellamy probably borrowed the "industrial army" concept from Karl Marx (the "Communist Manifesto") or from Charles Fourier (Francois Fourier) forerunner of Fourierism.  François Marie Charles Fourier (April 7, 1772 - October 10, 1837) was a French utopian socialist. Fourier inspired the founding of the socialist community called La Reunion near present-day Dallas, Texas as well as several other communities within the United States of America, such as North American Phalanx.  Fourier also had spoken of organized workers as an industrial army.  Rosemount says that "Looking Backward" was a favorite of workers in the Petrograd Soviet during the 1905 revolution.

Frederick Bellamy (born April 14, 1847), Charles Bellamy (born May 7, 1852) and Edward Bellamy (born March 26, 1850) were socialists and brothers. Edward Bellamy (author of the novel "Looking Backward") and Charles Bellamy (author of "A Moment of Madness") and Frederick Bellamy (who introduced Edward to socialist Fourierism) were cousins to Francis Bellamy (author of the "Pledge of Allegiance") and Francis was also a socialist.  

Frederick was a partner of the Rowe Company, a publishing firm.  According to Sylvia Bowman's biography, "It is also probable that, following Frederick's advice, [Edward] was writing articles for the Boston Daily Globe, which had just begun publication."  During this period of time in New York, Edward also contributed articles whenever he could to the Post, which was promoting sanitation legislation. Edward also wrote the article "National Education" for The Golden Age.

Years later when Edward Bellamy made some notes for a sequel to "Looking Backward," he was doubtless thinking of this period of his life, and thinking about his cousin (Francis Bellamy) when he wrote that a young cousin was to go to the city, find it "hard to live," see a lot of suffering, and become a Nationalist.

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) and their dogma influenced socialists worldwide (including Germany) via “Nationalist Clubs” inspired by Edward Bellamy international bestseller "Looking Backward."  http://rexcurry.net/bellamy-edward-german-connections.html  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 as alphabetic symbolism, including meshed "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. http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-swastika.html

Dr. Curry showed that the USA's early Pledge of Allegiance (to the flag) used a straight-arm salute and it was the origin of the salute of the monstrous National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazis). Dr. Curry helped to establish that it was not an ancient Roman salute, and that the "ancient Roman salute" is a myth. http://rexcurry.net/pledgesalute.html  The myth is still repeated in modern efforts to cover-up Dr. Curry's discoveries about the Pledge's poisonous pedigree.

The original Pledge began with a military salute that then stretched out toward the flag. Historic photographs are at http://rexcurry.net/pledge2.html and at http://rexcurry.net/pledge_military.html   In actual use, the second part of the gesture was performed with a straight arm and palm down by children casually performing the forced ritual chanting.  Professor Curry showed that, due to the way that both gestures were used sequentially in the pledge, the military salute led to the Nazi salute. The Nazi salute is an extended military salute. http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-pledge.html

From 1868 to 1869, Edward Bellamy spent a year in Germany, learning to speak and write German and attending lectures and studying German socialism. Edward Bellamy even wrote A Süd Deutsch Volklied (South German Peoples' Song) in German on the inside cover of his notebook (dated Jan. 4, 1878, see Arthur Morgan's Edward Bellamy from Columbia University Press 1944).

Edward's brother Frederick stated that Edward had talked and read about socialism before Edward went to Germany. Frederick wrote that Edward's letters to him from Germany were full of German socialism which "he had read and studied much at home." (see Sylvia E. Bowman's 1958 book The Year 2000).

While Bellamy was in Germany, the first German unions were founded and the German Workers' Party (Die Deutsche Arbeiterpartei) issued its program of socialist cliches that Bellamy repeated in his bestseller (Looking Backward) and his other writings for the rest of his life.  The German Workers' Party was the Party that later added the very phrase "National Socialism" to the front of its name and became the Nazis (the National Socialist German Workers' Party or Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei or NSDAP ). The ominous parallel of Bellamy ideas and U.S. socialists can be seen in the 25 point program of the NSDAP.

Edward later wrote in support of socialism, "It was in the great cities of Europe and among the hovels of the peasantry that my eyes were first fully opened to the extent and consequences of 'man's inhumanity to man.'"  But Edward died in 1898, and he did not see the apparitions of things to come, nor how he would become an intellectual author of the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): the National Socialist German Workers' Party (21 million); the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (62 million people slaughtered); the People's Republic of China (35 million).  The invasion of Poland in WWII occurred in 1939, with the National Socialist German Workers’ Party and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics as allies in their scheme to divide up Europe.

Edward and Francis were militantly anti libertarian. The authoritarian elements in "Looking Backward" include most notably the military metaphors pertaining to the "industrial army." 

The Bellamy dogma helped many people to recognize socialist slavery and socialism as inherently oppressive and a system which makes the interests of every individual antagonistic to every other. 

In 1898, Edward Bellamy, died of consumption (tuberculosis or TB). There are many parallels between Bellamy's socialism and Bellamy's other disease, TB.  TB was called "consumption" because it seemed to consume people with long relentless wasting.  According to Rosemount, Bellamy caught TB in his twenties.  Bellamy might have caught TB in Germany and Europe where he also caught his socialism bug. 

Tuberculosis is still one of the most deadly and common major infectious diseases today in developing countries that suffer under socialism.  It infects two billion people or one-third of the world's population. Nine million new cases of disease, resulting in two million deaths, occur annually, mostly in backward socialist  countries with bad sanitation.  The number of deaths compares with the number of deaths under the socialist Wholecaust.

Tuberculosis caused the most widespread public concern in the 19th and early 20th centuries as the endemic disease of the urban poor. In 1815 England one in four deaths were of consumption; by 1918 one in six deaths in France were still caused by TB.

TB is an infection caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis.  Due to the variety of its symptoms, TB was not identified as a unified disease until the 1820s and was not named tuberculosis until 1839 by J. L. Schönlein. 

The bacillus-causing tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, was described on March 24, 1882 by Robert Koch. Koch did not believe that bovine (cattle) and human tuberculosis were similar, which held back the recognition of infected milk as a source of infection. Later, this source was eliminated in capitalist processes of mass pasteurization of marketed milk. 

In the United States, concern about the spread of tuberculosis played a role in the movement to oppose spitting except into spittoons.

"Apparitions" is illustrated with the collages of Hal Rammel.


Polish Man from era of Union of Soviet Socialist Republics Awakes from 19-Year Coma, Discovers Market Economy

America's growing socialist police state has many forgotten origins. One source was the notorious national socialist Edward Bellamy. In his anti libertarian book, "Looking Backward 2000-1887," Edward Bellamy told the tale of a young 19th century American who awakes in the year 2000 to find his nation transformed into a socialist utopia. The book caused a sensation when published (1888) and even led to the establishment of over 160 "Bellamy clubs" dedicated to realizing the utopian future described in the book.

Bellamy's ideas did more immediate damage in the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and, before the prophetic year of 2000, the USSR collapsed after decades of socialism, shortages, poverty, misery, persecution, torture and death as part of the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): ~60 million slaughtered under Soviet socialism; ~50 million slaughtered under the Peoples' Republic of China (PRC); ~20 million slaughtered under the National Socialist German Workers Party (NSGWP). In 1939, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics had joined as allies with the National Socialist German Workers Party to invade Poland in a plan to divide up Europe into socialist utopias. Afterward, the USSR continued to pursue the goals it had formed with the National Socialist German Workers' Party. The USSR and the PRC went on to kill even more people for decades after the end of the NSGWP.

Bellamy's utopia was a dystopia in practice. http://rexcurry.net

Polish railroad worker Jan Grzebski lapsed into a coma for 19 years after being hit by a train in 1988. After Grzebski awakened, his last memories were of a socialist country where the only things in the shops were tea and vinegar, where meat was scarce and long lines formed for rationed gasoline and other items.

Mr. Grzebski was delighted to awake to a more free market economy in 2007. "[T]here are so many goods in the shops it makes my head spin," he told Polish television. He is particularly amazed by the fact that everyone has mobile phones. Mr. Grzebski had a real life "looking backward" experience, although quite different from that imagined by Mr. Bellamy. Looking backward at the non-fiction version of Edward Bellamy's socialism, Mr. Grzebski said "I’ve got nothing to complain about." Mr. Grzebski is more than just a great story, he is a living reminder of how far the United States is traveling down the same dystopian road of socialism.

For an interesting comparison to the real-life coma experience, watch the funny movie "Good Bye Lenin" available on DVD.

For a not-so-funny experience watch the movie "The Lives of Others" (2007).

Government shows how time travel is possible. Time travels backward under socialism.

Question: What did Soviet Socialists use before they had candles? Answer: Electricity.

Time travels foward by capitalism, or time can travel forward by coma through socialism as Grzebski learned.  

Socialism put many countries and millions of people into comas, and worse.

Socialism in medicine only worsens the comas.

Edward Bellamy's dystopia continues to grow in the United States. Edward Bellamy was aided by his cousin and socialist cohort Francis Bellamy, the author of the Pledge of Allegiance, and an advocate of socialism in schools (he promoted the government takeover of education). Their work was the source of the stiff-armed salute adopted later by the National Socialist German Workers Party and influenced its dogma, symbols and rituals (see "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets" by Dr. Rex Curry). http://rexcurry.net/silvestrini-elaine-tampa-tribune-pledge.jpg

Grzebski's recovery was reported in news outlets (June 4, 2007).
