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
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
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.
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
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.
BACKWARD AFTER A REAL LIFE COMA
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.
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
Question: What did Soviet Socialists use before they had candles? Answer:
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).
