Appendices

The American people have been and are complacently unfamiliar with Communism's helpmate, Fabian Socialism. For over fifty years but especially since the middle nineteen-thirties there have been insinuated into high places in our government at Washington men whose collaboration in this socialistic movement has been greatly responsible for breaking down our constitutional form of government and substituting therefor the Socialist idea of centralized government.

Every loyal American should read this book. It is well documented, and proves beyond doubt that those who have wielded such vast influence upon successive Presidents, especially since Franklin Roosevelt, do not have a desire to retain the freedom of the individual and the free enterprise system, but rather seek to establish the very coercion from which our forefathers fled. The reader will be shocked when he comprehends that there are those in high places in government who are dedicated to this Socialist movement. The ultimate objective of the Fabian Socialist movement is no different than the ultimate objective of the Communist movement.

After months of work, I have finally completed the transcription of this book.

To the best of my knowledge, this book is in the public domain. (Not in copyright) It was reviewed in 1967 by The Freeman. (fee.org)

If you wish to copy any of what I have done, by all means, take it. I ran spell check on what I've done, but there could still be small errors in the copy, so I would suggest that you always defer back to the original to be sure.

There is a clear link between British Fabianism and American Progressivism, and this book goes a long way towards highlighting it.

Without going through all the hyperlinks can you tell me if education in America is discussed? And if so, do they talk about the takeover of our children?

For a few years, the Bellamy cult spread like a brush fire across the United States. By November, 1890, its leaders reported 158 Nationalist clubs in twenty-seven states. Sixteen of these clubs were located in New York and sixty-five in California, which Laurence Gronlund exuberantly judged to be more nearly ripe for the Cooperative Commonwealth than any other state in the Union. The movement bypassed former Confederate states and made few overtures to the Catholic church, generally viewed in the nineteenth century as an immigrant church—notwithstanding the fact that Catholic colonists in Maryland and Pennsylvania had fought almost to a man in the War of Independence.

According to Edward Bellamy, his new social gospel was to be spread “not by foreign malcontents, but by Americans descended from generations of Americans.” In February, 1891, 165 chartered clubs existed throughout the country, a majority of them in the Far and Middle West. Fully fifty newspapers supported the Nationalist cause in whole or in part, and Sylvester Baxter declared you could not go into a major newspaper office in New York, Philadelphia or Boston without finding one or more Nationalists on the staff. Though the Atlantic remained aloof, other respected monthly magazines of the age opened their pages to Nationalist propaganda. Bellamy himself contributed a brief article to the North American Review on the “Progress of Nationalism in the United States.”(1)

The first issue of a brand-new periodical called The Literary Digest, launched in March, 1890, featured a lead article by General Francis A. Walker, president of Massachusetts Institute of Technology and original president of the American Economic Association. It was a critique, mildly critical but none the less friendly, of that much-reviewed novel, Looking Backward. Early numbers of The Literary Digest were loaded with references to Nationalism in America and Socialism in Great Britain, though no connection between the two was inferred. There were items on Nationalist clubs in California and elsewhere; as well as an article by one Angelo Majorama on “Socialism in England,” reporting that “Socialism has invaded the Universities” and “in England is closely allied with religion.” And the reelection of Annie Besant to the London School Board was politely noted.

Repeatedly, the middle class character of the Nationalist clubs was stressed—especially in their own club notes, printed in a short-lived official monthly, The Nationalist. Started in Boston with fifty members, the clubs attracted some rather well-known personalities of the day; and the movement as a whole was stamped with the hallmark of New England culture. The membership of the Boston club was a good deal more impressive, if less cohesive, than the London Fabian Society’s had been at the time of its founding only five years earlier.

There was William Dean Howells, venerable and kindly dean of American letters;(2) the Reverend Edward Everett Hale, product of the Harvard Divinity School and scion of Mayflower Pilgrims, widely known as the author of that patriotic classic, The Man Without a Country; Hamlin Garland, writer of homespun tales from the mid-western prairies; and John Storr Cobb, a founder of the Theosophical Society in America. While subscribing to the club’s Socialist program, most of these respectable gentlemen were apparently unaware of the Marxist philosophy that prompted it. Each in his own fashion was a prototype of the non-analytical do-gooder who has contributed so liberally ever since to the spread of what Eleanor Marx called “unconscious Socialism” in America.

Yes, it is. Chapter 18’s “secret weapons” are university professors.

If you’re looking for a thorough examination of education in America, you would probably be better off with this:

Can I include the idiotic High Speed Rail to nowhere in California as the state heads towards bankruptcy?

In all of my life, I have never seen such a boondoggle as this. California can't even afford the most basic services anymore and almost bankrupt and the politicians want to build this idiotic train through farm country who have no reason to even ride the stupid thing? I could understand a system from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, but this stupid idea starts from nowhere to nowhere. Hell, they're not even starting from a metropolitan area.

That is the major problem with politicians, they all want some sort of legacy, no matter the cost to productive citizens. Ego-maniacs, all. I hate politicians from city council and up. They always think they know better. They can never leave well enough alone, because they are always looking at the next level of power and looking to build a name for themselves.

Your diligent effort is awesome. That book will change a lot of minds about how deep and how long this insidious mess has been going on. And how much today reflects the bad old days of the Soviet takeover of Russia, and the Socialist takeover of the formerly great British crown.

Thank you, but I'm getting frustrated with learning or being made aware of information / data after it could have been more effective on me.

Or maybe it's God's plan for me to show me things after the fact so I am not chasing a cloud.

I started reading this this morning and it is the kind of writing that makes it enjoyable to actually sit down and read a book.

In the vernaculasr;

Y'done good, buddyboy.

Re: K-12 schooling

Modern K-12 schooling, since its inception in the mid1800s, is and always has been a socialist-funded, single-payer, and compulsory-use entitlement.

Children who attend government K-12 schools risk learning that any voting mob powerful enough to give them tuition-free schooling is powerful enough to give them **lots** of free stuff. We should not be surprised that after one to three generations of socialist-funded and government compelled schooling that voters were comfortable with FDR's socialism and compulsion.

I have not yet read Chapter 18 but plan to later this afternoon. I am in a rush since I have church responsibilities that need immediate attention.

Is there any way you can get it on Librivox.org?

Get a group of readers there that have recorded on the same subject?

It would be a huge jump re: getting this out there.

Thanks for all your efforts. However, I don't need to read your links to tell me that the USA is now a "gimme" nation.

We're over and done. I enjoyed the ride while it lasted. I have enjoyed "freedom" throughout most of my life, and even served it for 11 years in the US Navy. Luckily, I'm on the back stretch of my life and hopefully will die before I see it fall further.

The United States' history will be written as another nation that let the failure of democracy (mob control) take over. Hopefully, there will be a footnote about being an original Republic and the glorious hopes some ancient guys had.

Protect what you have, because the worst is yet to come.

I would like to get this book on Librivox, at some point. And youtube.

But I’m not aware of any readers there who are consistently choosing the topics that I am.

They’re also very leery of anything published after 1923, for good reason.

i feel the same. Isn't it sad that we are at this point where we hope to die for improvement? Bet we aren't the only ones.
