American socialists spread fascism worldwide. Francis Bellamy (along with other American socialists, including Francis’ famous cousin Edward Bellamy) spread fascist symbolism in the United States first, and then globally. http://rexcurry.net/fascism=socialism.html
The Bellamys wanted government to take over all schools. That is why a flag is over every school and in every classroom, accompanied by robotic chanting every morning for 12 years of every American child’s life. http://rexcurry.net/pledge-allegiance-pledge-allegiance.jpg
That behavior influenced Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts (from 1907) and other Americans who spread the USA’s “Nazi” salute worldwide, and the swastika, and robotic chanting to flags in military formation. http://rexcurry.net/pledge-of-allegiance-scouting.html
The early salute to the flag in the Pledge of Allegiance was the notorious stiff-arm salute. The salute (and the robotic chanting to the flag) began in 1892 with Francis when he was a self-proclaimed American socialist in the Nationalism movement. It was adopted later by the National Socialist German Workers Party.
The flag of the U.S. government is fasciate. The flag’s 13 fasciae (bands or stripes) are red and white. The fasciated flag’s authority and its early stiff-arm salute were reinforced by the U.S. government’s use of the fasces symbol. The government still uses the fasces today.
The fasces [fas-eez] symbol shows a bundle of rods banded or fastened around an ax with the blade projecting. The words “fasten” and “band” are used because they are related to the word “Fascism.” The fasces symbolized how everyone was bound to the authoritarianism of ancient Rome.
Here is another reason why the socialist role in Fascism is fascinating: “fascinating” means “spellbinding” (fastened or banded by a spell), making the words related to “fasces.” The fascinating role of American socialists includes the Theosophical Society, Freemasons, swastika symbols and the spellbinding effect of socialist dogma for seducing groups and enslaving and killing millions of people worldwide.
In rural Italy to this day a woman who suspects her husband of infidelity will consult a strega, who will give her a fascino, a charm to stop him from straying.
Long ago, money was socialized in the U.S. (the Federal Reserve Act was imposed in 1913). The fasces is still commonly seen on some 25 cent coins. http://rexcurry.net/fascism=socialism2a.jpg
In 1915, fasces appeared on an Indian head gold coin in the talons of an eagle. In 1916, fasces appeared on the Mercury dime. It was propaganda to con Americans into another one of the many stupid wars that the USA’s government either started or joined: WWI (the war to make the world safe for democracy, har har).
It was much later that the symbol was adopted by Mussolini when he was a well-known socialist leader. http://rexcurry.net/mussolini.html
The fasces is on the seal of the Rome Academy where Francis Bellamy (1855-1932) attended school. http://rexcurry.net/fascist-flag.jpg Francis resided in Rome, New York. The Rome Free Academy exists today and its seal continues to display two fasces. Many cities in the state of New York have names from classical history (Troy, Ithaca, Syracuse, Utica, Rome) and that is why New York is the “Empire State,” a reference to the Roman empire, and origin of the term “Empire State Building” for New York City’s famous landmark.
The Pledge’s right-arm salute was repeated in early movies containing fictional Roman scenes. Movies were new worldwide wonders that amazed and influenced everyone (including the socialist Mussolini in Italy and the leader of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party).
All of the above contributed to the Roman salute myth (the myth that the stiff-arm salute was an ancient Roman salute), debunked by the etymologist Dr. Rex Curry (author of “Pledge of Allegiance Secrets”). http://rexcurry.net/roman-salute-metropolitan-museum-of-art.html
The stiff-armed American salute spread through various groups including the Theosophical Society and Freemasons that supported or were supported by Edward Bellamy and Francis Bellamy.
In 1888, Edward Bellamy authored “Looking Backward” and it became an international bestseller, translated into every major language, including German and Italian.
Bellamy’s book was known as the bible of National Socialism and it inspired Nationalism movements worldwide. The Bellamy’s touted “military socialism.” Madame Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical Society, openly endorsed Bellamy’s book. Her group worked with Bellamy’s Nationalism movement.
The swastika symbol was used by the Theosophical Society (from 1875) during the time when the Bellamys, Freemasons and the Theosophical Society worked together to promote socialism. http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-swastika.html
American socialists bear some blame for altering the notorious symbol used as overlapping S-letters for “socialism” under the National Socialist German Workers Party. http://rexcurry.net/swastika3clear.jpg
As German socialism’s notorious flag symbol, the swastika was deliberately turned 45 degrees to the horizontal and always oriented in the S-direction. Similar alphabetic symbolism is still visible as Volkswagen logos. http://rexcurry.net/swastika-audi-logo.JPG
Near the same period, the well-known and long-time socialist Benito Mussolini began to mimick American socialists in their use of the stiff-arm salute, robotic chanting to flags, the use of the fasces as a symbol of government, and the glorification of ancient Rome (or myths about Rome). In 1921, Mussolini (who acquired his title “il duce” -leader- when he was known only as a socialist, long before his new f-word for socialist factions) created a new sub-group called Fasci di combattimento. The term “fascio” was the Italian word for workers’ groups, peasant organizations, labor unions and the other socialist groups where Mussolini had developed a large following. It meant “band,” or people banding together, and referred to his socialist band of combat. It is similar to the word “faction” in that Mussolini’s group was another of many socialist-inspired factions. Socialism is always faction against faction.
When Mussolini chose the ancient Roman fasces as a symbol of his socialist group, he was at the same time playing with the similarity of the words fascio and fasces, choosing an ancient symbol, and drawing a parallel between it and the socialists who had banded together, spellbound by Mussolini’s leadership.
Another well-known socialist at that time was the leader of the National Socialist Workers Party in Germany (Hitler acquired the title “Furher” -leader- when he fascinated socialist groups, long before others applied new terms to his socialism). He had expanded the name of the party from “German Workers Party” at the same time that the swastika was adopted to represent S-letters banded together and symbolizing socialists banding together as the NSDAP.
An American socialist group supported German socialists, and it was named the “German-American Bund” (German American Band or “Faction”).
Mussolini’s evolution of the fasces is similar to Hitler’s evolution of an old symbol, the hakenkreuz (hooked cross) into modern alphabetic symbolism as “S” letters for “socialism,” as shown in Dr. Curry’s work. http://rexcurry.net/fascism-third-reich-hitler-nazism-swastika456.jpg
In late 1937, Mussolini continued to work with other socialists, including the National Socialist German Workers Party. Mussolini visited Germany in 1937 and pledged himself to support the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. In 1939, the National Socialist German Workers’ Party joined as allies with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics to invade Poland in a pact to divide up Europe, spreading WWII.
During the second of the Dark Ages, socialism (a.k.a. Fascism) became fashionable, with fancy military uniforms, marching parades, and flag waving adoration. It led to modern inquisitions and the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): 60 million slaughtered under the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; 50 million under the Peoples’ Republic of China; 20 million under the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. The worst inquisitions were the modern inquisitions (the socialist inquisitions), and they were the deadliest. Socialism/Fascism became unfashionable.
The Dark Age also refers to the period in Europe from the fall of Rome. The socialist Dark Age resulted from mimicking ancient Rome – and myths about Rome – as if to resurrect them.
American socialists had revived the fasces (and the swastika) and what it represented: fastening, binding and enslaving individuals to a centralized leviathan. Socialism fastens everyone to involuntary government programs and modern slavery. It binds everyone to bureaucracy.
America is still the worst example in the world of bizarre laws that lead robotic chanting to the fasciate federal flag in government schools (socialist schools) every day for 12 years of every child’s life. It has changed generations of Americans from libertarians to authoritarians.
The ax in the fasces represents the constant threat of violence toward all who desire freedom.
