Edward Bellamy & Looking Backward & Equality inspired Adolf Hitler & Nazi concentration camps?

Did the American socialist Edward Bellamy inspire German socialists in their use of concentration camps? http://tinnyray.wordpress.com/2014/07/10/edward-bellamy-looking-backward-inspired-hitlers-concentration-camps/

That question is raised by the historian Dr. Rex Curry and by information on the blog Aberhart and Harper on Crusade: History of the Conservative Party of Canada which emerged from the Social Credit Party of William Aberhart, not the Tory Party of Sir John A MacDonald at http://harpercrusade.blogspot.ca/2010/05/chapter-eighteen-continued-in-search-of.html

The Aberhart blog references research by Dr. Curry concerning the Christian Socialists Edward Bellamy and his cousin Francis Bellamy (author of the US's Pledge of Allegiance), both self-proclaimed national socialists, and their influence decades later upon German national socialists.

The blog also references the book Bible Bill: A Biography of William Aberhart, By: David R. Elliot and Iris Miller, Edmonton: Reidmore Books, 1987, Pg. 188 

An excerpt from the blog is here -

Aberhart's biographer David Elliot did wonder just how far he (Aberhart) would have taken Bellamy's work.
The nature of the State was better defined. Dividends would be given for loyalty to the State; if a person refused to work, or refused to join the Social Credit movement, he would not receive dividends. If he abused his privileges under the new economic system, the Credit House inspector could withdraw his dividends and put him on an "Indian List." The latter expression was not defined, but Aberhart may have had in mind the reservations or concentration camps that Bellamy had described for non-sympathizers. (2)

Major Douglas, the creator of the Social Credit theories, also sought a Utopian world, once his economic principles were adopted.

The reference to Edward Bellamy above comes probably from the book "Equality" (the sequel to "Looking Backward") near the end of chapter 5: "If an adult, being neither criminal nor insane, should deliberately and fixedly refuse to render his quota of service in any way, either in a chosen occupation or, on failure to choose, in an assigned one, he would be furnished with such a collection of seeds and tools as he might choose and turned loose on a reservation expressly prepared for such persons, corresponding a little perhaps with the reservations set apart for such Indians in your day as were unwilling to accept civilization. There he would be left to work out a better solution of the problem of existence than our society offers, if he could do so."

For a reminder of what the US was doing to Indians with its "Indian lists" see this film from a movie portrayal, and showing Indians being taught in the US to perform the Nazi salute and to mechanically chant the Pledge of Allegiance.

Another part of the same blog article mentions how the US's Pledge of Allegiance was the origin of the Nazi salute and Nazi behavior (as shown in the work of the historian Dr. Rex Curry http://youtu.be/BssWWZ3XEe4

An excerpt from the blog is here -


According to Dr. Curry, Alfred Rosenberg, was also inspired by Bellamy's book and may have been the one to introduce it to the Thule Society. Though his first interest was antisemitism, inspired by the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and Aryan supremacy, as introduced by Helena Blavatsky:

"The intellectual difference between the Aryan and other civilized nations and such savages as the South Sea Islanders, is inexplicable on any other grounds. No amount of culture, nor generations of training amid civilization, could raise such human specimens as the Bushmen, the Veddhas of Ceylon, and some African tribes, to the same intellectual level as the Aryans ..."

Blavatsky also promoted the notion of Brotherhoods and Societies dedicated to the Occult. Where I see Bellamy's book coming in, is with the creation of a perfect society. And of course, you can't mistake the military socialism.

I work for the "Stop The Pledge" foundation, a non-profit group dedicated to freeing Americans from the Pledge of Allegiance and its putrid past of robotic nazi-style brainwashing. Americans are ignorant about their Pledge of Allegiance. Please see the work of the historian Dr. Rex Curry cited in the book "Libertarian History" by the author Lin Xun. It includes these shockers: (1) that the "Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag" was the origin of the Nazi salute and Nazi behavior; (2) that the military salute was the origin of the Nazi salute (via the military salute's use in the original Pledge of Allegiance) and; (3) Swastikas represented crossed "S" letter shapes for "socialist" under Hitler. At amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/153544326X At kindle https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01J0FV8AQ The National Socialist German Workers Party was influenced by American National Socialists, including Francis Bellamy (author of the Pledge) and his cousin and cohort Edward Bellamy (the author of American books on National Socialism). Remove the Pledge from the flag. Remove the flag from schools. Remove schools from government.
