**********************

Jean-Jacques Rousseau wrote about the "civil religion" that inspired
the French Revolution and the socialist Wholecaust (of which the
Holocaust was a part): the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics,
~60 million deaths; People's Republic of China, ~50 million deaths;
National Socialist German Worker’s Party, ~20 million deaths.

In Rousseau's profane brain religion is “a purely civil profession of
faith of which the sovereign should fix the articles, not exactly as
religious dogmas, but as social sentiments without which a man cannot
be a good citizen or a faithful subject.” He added, “It [the
sovereign] can banish from the state whoever does not believe them -
it can banish him, not for impiety, but as an anti-social being,
incapable of truly loving the laws and justice, and of sacrificing, at
need, his life to his duty. If any one, after publicly recognizing
these dogmas, behaves as if he does not believe them, let him be
punished to death: he has committed the worst of all crimes, that of
lying before the law.”

The Rousseauist dogma of the “civil religion” was the theology of the
socialist Wholecaust. Francis Bellamy, an American proponent of
Christian Socialism, boosted the same vision through his Pledge of
Allegiance and as a daily religious ritual in government schools
(socialist schools). http://rexcurry.net/pledgespeech.html

Compare Bellamy's bloviating to those he inspired later in the
National Socialist German Workers' Party. http://rexcurry.net/filmrev-triumph-of-the-will.html

Mike Bellamy teaches English literature and rhetoric at the University
of St. Thomas, while also directing an English Master's Program.
Francis Bellamy, who wrote the Pledge of Alllegiance is the first
cousin of Mike's great-grandfather. Mike Bellamy has stated that the
Pledge was designed as the beginning of a civil religion, bringing the
strength of religious belief into "patriotism."

In the 1920's Bellamy devised "A Plan for a Counterattack on the
Nation's Internal Foes: How to Mobilize the Masses to Support Primary
American Doctrines."
He had to be aware of similar attitudes about primary Soviet socialist
doctrines under Lenin in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. It
was similar to the "counterattack" mentality for primary German and
Chinese doctrines preached later by German socialists under Adolf
Hitler and the National Socialist German Workers Party, and by Chinese
socialists under Mao Zedong. http://rexcurry.net/socialists.html
......................................................

Many people marveled at Adolf Hilter's "hypnotic" powers of
propaganda, as if he was the first of his kind as head of the National
Socialist German Workers Party. Adolf Hitler's propaganda had already
been pioneered by Francis Bellamy, Edward Bellamy and American
socialists. Francis Bellamy's original Columbus Day program was a
blueprint of nationwide propaganda for socialism in government
schools. They put government flags over schools, in classrooms and
everywhere.

They even put flags (and chanting to flags) in churches in another
eerie parallel followed decades later by socialists in Germany.
