Rex Curry is the historian whose discoveries are cited in many books on Amazon, Kindle, and other sources, including the book "Libertarian History" by the author Lin Xun. Xun explains these shockers from Dr. Curry: (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.

Francis Bellamy, Edward Bellamy & the NEA Nationalist Educational Association

Edward Bellamy's choice of "The New Nation" as the name for his magazine is interesting in that another magazine with a similar name but with a different policitcal perspective had existed for a long time before Bellamy's magazine, and when Bellamy's new publication was conducted by Henry Willard Austin, the other older magazine (The Nation) was owned by Henry Villard. During the life of Bellamy's magazine, the older Nation magazine expressed an anti-socialist point of view. Was the "New Nation" name selected by Bellamy meant to contrast his magazine's pro-socialist point of view? See the work of the documentarian Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets").

Note that the publishing organization for Bellamy's publication was named "THE NATIONALIST EDUCATIONAL ASSOCIATION" in deliberate similarity to the National Educational Association. This is a photograph of the Nationalist Magazine from Edward Bellamy

Edward Bellamy was cousin and cohort to another infamous American National socialist, Francis Bellamy, author of the Pledge of Allegiance (which was the origin of the stiff-arm salute adopted later by the National Socialist German Workers Party, as shown by Dr. Curry).

The Bellamys wanted government to take over all educational institutions and create an "industrial army" to spread their dogma.

Later, the older Nation magazine would adopt Bellamy's pro-socialist dogma, long aftger Bellamy and his magazine ceased to exist.

The Nation magazine began in July 1865 in Manhattan. The publisher was Joseph H. Richards, and the editor was E.L. Godkin, a classical liberal critic of nationalism, imperialism, and socialism. The magazine stayed at "Newspaper Row" in Manhattan for 90 years. Wendell Phillips Garrison, son of William Lloyd Garrison, was literary editor of the periodical from 1865 to 1906.

In 1881, newspaperman-turned-railroad-baron Henry Villard acquired The Nation and converted it into a weekly literary supplement for his daily newspaper the New York Evening Post.

In 1918, the editor of the magazine became Henry Villard's son, Oswald Garrison Villard, and he sold the Evening Post. He remade The Nation into a current affairs publication and gave it a socialist orientation. Villard's takeover prompted the FBI to monitor the magazine for roughly 50 years. The FBI had a file on Villard since 1915. Almost every editor of The Nation from Villard's time to the 1970s was looked at for "subversive" activities and ties. When Albert Jay Nock, not long later, published a column criticizing Samuel Gompers and trade unions for being complicit in the war machine of the First World War, The Nation was briefly suspended from the U.S. mail.

Under Henry Villard, the offices of The Nation were moved to the Evening Post's headquarters on Broadway. The New York Evening Post would later morph into a tabloid: the New York Post. It was a socialist-leaning afternoon tabloid under owner Dorothy Schiff from 1939 to 1976.

The Nation continues to be known for its socialist politics.
