New discoveries show that swastikas were used as alphabetic symbolism (to represent letters and words) in the United States decades before swastikas became symbols for "socialism" under German National Socialism and under the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. http://rexcurry.net/swastika-hakenkreuz.html

The discoveries are in the growing body of work by the symbologist and cryptologist Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Swastika Secrets"). He has previously shown how socialists in the USA modernized the ancient swastika as overlapping "S" letters for "Socialists" joining together in a utopian "Socialist Society."

The swastika was also used to represent four conjoined "L" letters for "luck, love, life, light."
The American swastika's alphabetic symbolism is shown in a popular 1910 postcard. An image is at http://rexcurry.net/swastika-liberty-life-light-love-luck-alphabetic-symbolism1910.JPG

The ends of the Swastika's arms can point clockwise or counterclockwise.  If the arms point clockwise, then the primary "L" letter appears upright in the top left of the swastika (as in the most common example of the "luck, love, life, light" image). If the arms point counterclockwise, then the primary "L" letter appears upright in the bottom right corner of the swastika. Some people see the "L" letter motif more easily in one orientation of the symbol, as compared with the other orientation.

In the same way that the swastika was viewed as four "L" letters, it was also viewed as two "S" letters. The "S" shape of the swastika is only visible when the orientation of the arms is clockwise.  The counterclockwise orientation provides a "Z" shape. The S-shape is heightened when the swastika is turned 45 degress to the horizontal as it was under German National Socialism. http://rexcurry.net/tetragrammaton.html

The double "S" symbolism was also suggested by the first and forth letters of the western term for the symbol: swastika.  In Germany, however, the symbol was not called "swastika," but was called "Hakenkreuz." Later, the symbol acquired an "S" reference in Germany when it was adopted by National Socialists, who also cried for their socialist victory with "Sieg Heil!" and used runes in their insignias.

The swastika as a socialist symbol was also adopted by Soviet Socialists in the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. http://rexcurry.net/ussr-socialist-swastika-cccp-sssr.html

Before 1910, the swastika was associated in the USA with the growing popularity of "military socialism," a dogma touted by Edward Bellamy, the American author of the international bestseller "Looking Backward," (1887) known as the bible of National Socialism.

The symbol was also famous in the USA as alphabetical symbolism for socialism in the Theosophical Society (TS), from 1875.  http://rexcurry.net/theosophy-madame-blavatsky-theosophical-society.html
 
In 1888, the Theosophical Society teamed up with Bellamy's Nationalist movement for military socialism.

In 1892, Francis Bellamy, cohort and cousin to Edward Bellamy, created the Pledge of Allegiance, and it was the origin of the stiff-arm Nazi salute popularized by forced daily robotic chanting required by laws in government schools. It was part of their plan for military socialism. They wanted the military system to be imposed on all of society.

The Bellamy salute and the Bellamy swastika spread globally.

Wikipedia is spreading the news about Dr. Curry's discoveries. Recent articles at opinioneditorials.com report on the many references to Dr. Curry's research and discoveries on Wikipedia. Even Wikipedia founder Jimmy "Jimbo" Wales  has publicly noted Dr. Curry's influence on Wikipedia. Dr. Curry's work has been covered and verified on Wikipedia. Some Wikipedia writers use Dr. Curry's work without attribution in apparent attempts to bolster their own credibility.

By 1915, the symbol was also widely popular as an ornamental "Good Luck" symbol, as in a 1915 postcard showing the American flag posed favorably with a swastika. http://rexcurry.net/swastika-flag2.JPG

American soldiers used the swastika as their symbol early in World War I, and against Germany. The symbol was used by Americans in the French Escadrille Lafayette and by the 45th Infantry Divison. http://rexcurry.net/45th-infantry-division-swastika-sooner-soldiers.html

Graduates/victims of government schools may find it hard to believe: Americans used the straight-arm gesture, wore swastika shoulder patches and flew planes adorned with swastikas in war against Germany, and they did it all decades before the same was done under the National Socialist German Workers' Party.  The USA was the origin of that behavior under German National Socialism.

By adopting the symbol, American soldiers influenced the swastika as an alphabetic symbol of socialism around the world, where the symbol had previously been a generic ancient symbol.

swastika as crossed number 5

The linked image is evidence that the swastika was used to symbolize the number 5 crossed in this coke charm that reads "Drink Coca-Cola bottles 5 cents." http://rexcurry.net/swastika-cocacola-five5-fob.jpg

Note that the coca-cola example is always shown in the number 5-direction, suggesting that the advertising slogan is not repeated on the opposite side (where the direction would not coincide with the "5" symbolism).

It helps explain why the swastika, an ancient symbol, was later used as crossed S-letters (for "socialism" under the National Socialist German Workers Party) as shown by the symbolist Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Swastika Secrets"). http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-swastika.html

GENERAL DEFINITION OF SWASTIKA SYMBOL -

The swastika (from Sanskrit) is an equilateral cross with its arms bent at right angles in either clockwise direction or the opposite. The swastika is a holy symbol in Hinduism, Jainism and Buddhism. The Hindu version is often decorated with a dot in each quadrant. In the West, it is not widely used due to its negative association with the National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSGWP). It is traditionally oriented so that a main line is horizontal, though it is was occasionally rotated at forty-five degrees, and espeically so under the NSGWP.

The motif seems to have first been used in Neolithic Eurasia. The swastika is used in religious and civil ceremonies in India. Most Indian temples, weddings, festivals and celebrations are decorated with swastikas. The symbol was used in Southeast Asia and remains an integral part of Balinese Hinduism to this day, and it is a common sight in Indonesia. The symbol has an ancient history in Europe, appearing on artifacts from pre-Christian European cultures. By the early 20th century it was widely used worldwide and was regarded as a symbol of good luck and auspiciousness.

Since its adoption by the leader of the National Socialist German Workers' Party, the swastika has been associated in the Western world with negative themes, World War II, and the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): ~60 million killed under the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, ~50 million under the Peoples' Republic of China, ~20 million under the National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSGWP). They were the worst slaughters in history. The slaughter was so enormous that Holocaust Museums can triple in size and scope by adding Wholecaust Museums. The NSGWP began in 1920, had electoral breakthroughs in 1930, dictatorship in 1933, and in 1939 the National Socialist German Workers' Party and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics started as allies in 1939 to invade Poland in a pact to divide up Europe.

German National Socialists placed the symbol on the national flag of Germany and saluted it with the notorious straight-arm salute. Many people were persecuted for refusing to salute, and some of the people who refused were religious people who considered the act sacrilegious. There were good reasons to consider the pledge and the salute to be the sacrilegious worship of government. Most people do not know that a cross was worshiped as the notorious symbol of the National Socialist German Workers' Party. The group called their symbol the Hakenkreuz, not the swastika. Hakenkreuz means "hooked cross." In the "Mein Kampf" the word "swastika" does not appear in the German version. "Swastika" was a bad translation of "Hakenkreuz."

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."  With a 45 degree turn of his Hakenkreuz, the leader of German National Socialists combined the cross with collectivism, merged church and state, meshed religion and socialism, and mandated the worship of government. The leader of the NSGWP altered his own signature to use the same stylized "S" letter for "socialist," He altered the symbol to turn it 45 degrees to the horizontal and eventually to always point to the right (to highlight the "S" letters), and similar alphabetic symbolism still shows on Volkswagens. It is one of the biggest cover-ups of all time. http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-swastika.html

Before the time of the NSGWP, there had been a resurgence in recognition of the symbol from the archaeological work of Heinrich Schliemann, who discovered the symbol in the site of ancient Troy and associated it with the ancient migrations of Proto-Indo-Europeans.

In the book "Swastika the earliest known symbol and its migrations" by Thomas Wilson (published in 1894 at page 771) explained how Professor Max Muller cautioned Schliemann against the use of the term "swastika" and said "I do not like the use of the word svastika outside of India.  It is a word of Indian origin and has its history and definite meaning in India. * * * The occurrence of such crosses in different parts of the world may or may not point to a common origin, but if they are once called Svastika the vulgus profanum will at once jump to the conclusion that they all come from India, and it will take some time to weed out such prejudice." Muller's prediction was amazingly accurate, and it is amusing that he labeled so many people in the world today as "vulgus profanum."

Blavatsky Madame's swastika brooch of Nazism


This is a symbol used by Madame Helena Blavatsky of the Theosophical Society during the time that she collaborated with the American socialist Edward Bellamy and his Nationalist movement in the USA.  http://rexcurry.net/theosophy-madame-blavatsky-theosophical-society.html

The inner symbol at lower left is "Shin" the twenty-first letter in many Semitic abjads, including Phoenician, Aramaic, Hebrew שׂ, and Arabic šīn ﺵ (in abjadi order, 12th in modern order).

The Phoenician Shin letter gave rise to other letters related to the letter "S," such as the Greek Sigma (Σ), Latin S, and Cyrillic letters Es (С).

In Judaism Shin also stands for S-letter symbolism for the word "Shaddai," a name for God. Because of this, a kohen (priest) forms the letter Shin with his hands as he recites the Priestly Blessing. In the mid 1960s, actor Leonard Nimoy used a single-handed version of this gesture to create the Vulcan Hand Salute for his character, Mr. Spock, on Star Trek.
http://rexcurry.net/tetragrammaton.html

In Jewish tradition the letter Shin is inscribed on the Mezuzah, a vessel which houses a scroll of parchment with Biblical text written on it. The text contained in the Mezuzah is the Shema Yisrael prayer, which calls the Israelites to love their God with all their heart. The mezuzah is situated upon all the doorframes in a home. Sometimes the whole word Shaddai is written.

The letter Shin also appears in the game of dreidel / dreydl as S-letter symbolism for "shtel" ("put" meaning to put a coin in the pot).

It is unfortunate that the monstrous National Socialist German Workers Party also used S-letter symbolism in the swastika to represent it dogma of "Socialism" under German National Socialism, a dogma influenced by the work of  Edward Bellamy's National Socialist movement and Madame Blavatsky's Theosophical Society in the USA, which also used the swastika symbol.

In addition, German socialists did not call their symbol a "swastika." German socialists called their symbol a Hakenkreuz. The word "Hakenkreuz" means "hooked cross" because it was also a reference to God and religion, as a type of cross.

The two S-letters mad the socialist swastika was a digrammaton, instead of a tetragrammaton.

How to pronounce "Hakenkreuz" from http://rexcurry.net/swastika-hakenkreuz.html

On the following linked website was the statement: "Would request all Hindus here in future to refer to the National Socialists (nazi) symbol as "Hakenkreuz", until we find any exception to the indications given above (that is, if and until we find that it was called something other than "Hakenkreuz" in nazi Germany)." [and what follows contains added images and links] http://forums.bharat-rakshak.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=5225&start=440

Pronunciation is easy:
0. Das in Das Hakenkreuz as in the English verb does. (Now, it's an 's' at the end, don't be all American and say doezzzz.)

1. Ha in Das Hakenkreuz as in hat

2. The en in Das Hakenkreuz as in "an" in "an apple". It's not like in "Anne apple", but the unstressed "There's an apple".

Now prefix the k to it, to get: Das Hakenkreuz

3. The eu in German is pronounced as "oi". E.g. like when you go "Oi, you there." It's a very short o in "oi".

4. And the z in German is generally "ts". (Stress the ssss so they know you are speaking German and not saying the English z.)

5. So now the kreuz in Das Hakenkreuz sounds like kroitss.

And this is important: it's a throaty 'r' in modern German. (60s and 70s German rolled it closer to the front/middle of the mouth - this can be your back-up plan.)
- Don't roll it like the Irish with their "girrrrrrl".
- Don't ignore it like many Australians do, who say something closer to "sista" than "sister".
- Don't soften it into invisibility like the English "r" (who tend to pronounce "it's a girl" like "It's a guhl" and say "forget it" as "fuh-get it").
- Americans have no real 'r' either but unlike the Brits who have close to nothing there, Americans insert a special sound in place of what we read on paper as an 'r'. Don't make that sound either.
The German "kr" is like clearing your throat, it's guttural here. Like you just tore something. Sounds pretty unattractive until you get used to it and then forget about it.

Keep practising the dreadful words "Das Hakenkreuz", until it rolls off your tongue like you're a native German-speaker.

So now, when some twat calls it a Swastika, you say:
"Get it right. It is called das *Hakenkreuz*. That's what the nazis and other Germans called it."
http://rexcurry.net/swastika3swastika.jpg

And, if you want, you can memorise those idiot nazi nationalist song lines and quotes from mein kampf and then rattle it off to them as proof. (I wouldn't. But you might want to.) http://rexcurry.net/swastika3clear.jpg

And if they give excuses like "Swastika is the *English* name for it", just tell them that you weren't aware that the English were also nazis flying the nazi symbol - else why do they have a separate word for it? See the work of the symbologist Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Swastika Secrets").

Another swastika picture http://rexcurry.net/fascism-third-reich-hitler-nazism-swastika456.jpg

Then: say that Swastika is Samskritam and the name of a Dharmic (Hindu, Buddhist) symbol that is unrelated to the Hakenkreuz except for being of a similar basic shape. And that since Swastika is NOT an English word either, and since English is a Germanic language, they should sooner opt for the German word "Hakenkreuz" itself, than reach for a word in distant Samskritam, if they're going to be using foreign terms anyway. Especially since the item being referred to is the *German* nazi symbol and not the Dharmic Religious Symbol in Samskritam.
