Evolution not Revolution

What is Socialism?

By Virginia McClaughry


Yet another British Slavemaster subject…


George Holyoake, a Brit, while also being the originator of the term “secularist”, was involved in the founding of the Workingmen’s Labor Party in America.


George was trying to distance himself from the now “bad positioning” PR-wise, of the term atheist. So, he made up a new word for his propaganda – secularist. He was accused at the time, of still promoting the same ideas, just more sneakily – which was exactly true.

This is typical of slavemaster propagandists – this constant naming and creating of “new” front groups.

As part of this continual shell game, in 1877 George Holyoake, John Watts and Harriet Law founded the British Secular Union, which remained active until 1884.

Here George could continue to forward the propaganda of Brit Robert Owens and “Co-Operating”. (see my article What is Secularism?)

socialist labor party

It was this organization that was to spawn a sister group in America – the Workingmen’s Labor Party – which was founded at the same time in Newark, New Jersey.

socialist labor party

It was almost immediately renamed the following year to the Socialistic Labor Party of America – there they go again with their re-naming parties. This group was especially strong in New York City, where there was a very large community of german-jewish immigrants.

That same year, is when Temple Emanu-El man Felix Adler founded the Society for Ethical Culture (February 21, 1877) – also in New York City.

Just one year later, Helena Blavatsky formed her British Theosophy Society officially.

Both Blavatsky and Adler had come back from England (from abroad) in 1876, the same year that Holyoake’s Workingmen’s Labor Party was formed in Newark.

Prior to all this activity, Holyoake had hooked up with Elizabeth Thompson, a wealthy American widow, who was fond of New World Order government ideas – a match made in British Intelligence heaven.


Mrs. Thompson has agitated the question of the possibility of an international republic, or a world governed by laws emanating from an intelligent community. The value of this idea has been recognized by statesmen at home and abroad. The publication of a journal in England advocating her views has been announced by George J. Holyoake. [approximately 1883]

Appletons’ Cyclopaedia of American Biography, Volume 6


Thompson “sponsored” George Holyoake to come to the U.S. in 1879, which seemed to mainly consist of what is called an obs mission – short for Observation mission – where he traveled all over the place and reported his observations of the people, the work, the ideas, and so on using the British embassy in Washington as his relay point. British Embassy heads having always been double-hatted as British intelligence – you understand.

Holyoake, through his SPR connections (Society of Psychical Research) helped Thompson and John Newbrough publish the Oahspe in 1882, which would become the foundation for much of Scientology’s Advanced Levels.

*See The Fairy Tales of Scientology: Advanced Science Fiction and A Comprehensive History of the Oahspe)

So, this “Labor Party” business, plus alternative “religions” and ideas such as Holyoake and Thompson are involved in, are all part of the British Slavemasters Grand Plan to rule the world.

One of the best expressions of which, was encapsulated in a speech by John Ruskin at Oxford. This was pretty much exactly the same time as Holyoake hooking up with Thompson, in order to start studying the “current mind” of Americans to try and figure out how to influence them.

Note: This was part of The Toynbee strategy as part of British tactics of war – thought war that is. We have discussed this in great detail in other articles, but the essence of the strategy is as follows.

“He would gather his friends around him; they would form an organization; they would work on quietly for a time, some at Oxford, some in London; they would prepare themselves in different parts of the subject until they were ready to strike in public.”

                             Toynbee and Ruskin

Arnold Toynbee   John_Ruskin_big

In 1870, Ruskin, a paedophile and Cecil Bloc man, had been appointed to Oxford as a professor. He delivered his inaugural lecture to a packed house on his 51st birthday February 8, 1870 at the Sheldonian Theatre. The lecture was published in his Lectures on Art (1894).

Imperial Duty was the subject.

Cecil Rhodes (The Round Table and the Rhodes Scholarship) cherished a long-hand copy of the lecture, believing (correctly) that it supported his views of the British Empire.

Here are a few key excerpts.

There is a destiny now possible to us … One kingdom; but who is to be its king?…will you, youths of England, make your country again a royal throne of kings; a sceptred isle, for all the world a source of light…

And this is what she [England] must either do, or perish: she must found colonies as fast and as far as she is able… their chief virtue is to be fidelity to their country…their first aim is to be to advance the power of England by land and sea…

The England who is to be mistress of half the earth…

– John Ruskin inaugural speech

Well, that pretty much makes it crystal-clear where Ruskin’s head was at – and where it was wanted that other young British “heads” should be as well. Whether they called it Owenism, or Darwinism, or CO-operators doesn’t matter. Just window dressing to cover their real agenda – England as the mistress of the earth.

And, it should be a bit more clear why George Holyoake would be tasked to play a role in the publishing of Mrs. Elizabeth Thompson’s (our Oashpe publisher in the U.S.)  rather convenient views on a new world order.

That’s the camouflage word for “kingdom” of England.

But also, put in light of Ruskin’s speech above, I think you’ll find it interesting that the British (Thompson and Holyoake) were trying to colonize the U.S. again – with Holyoake-based “co-operative” colonies.

Elizabeth Thompson, had been a supporter of George Holyoake’s secularism since at least 1871, when she had underwritten the Chicago-Colorado Colony near Burlington, Colorado. She became George’s patron in 1879 when she sponsored his speaking tour of the U.S.

Holyoake fully endorsed Thompson’s efforts to establish cooperative colonies, and this was how Thompson’s Colony near Salina, Kansas, began.

Called the Workingmen’s Co-operative Colony, it was unique as part of British colonization efforts in the U.S. in Kansas. It was the first of the British re-colonization effort in America and the only attempt by members of the British “working classes” to build a settlement in Kansas (which only lasted five years).

*Reference – Llewellyn Castle: A Worker’s Cooperative on the Great Plains by Gary R. Entz

Now you begin to see why the name Workingmen’s Labor Party, founded in 1877 in the U.S.

Two years later, when Holyoake spoke about his baby, this Socialist-Labor Party, he predicted that it would become much larger than it then was in the United States.

In the New York Times November 2, 1879, he said:

The laborer would lack common sense, he thought, if he stood idly by while machinery showers gold upon capitalists.


– which was an obvious undermining attempt of the American economy.

As per the same New York Times article, this speech that Holyoake gave was done together with Felix Adler and others (Mr. E.V. Smalley, Mr. Ryland, and Mr. Peter Cooper).

Felix Adler in 1875Felix Adler – 1875


If you understand who Adler was (Temple Emanu-El Ethical Culture Society) it makes perfect sense why he would be appearing publicly with and in support of Brit-propaganda man George Holyoake. Felix would later send his right-hand man, Stanton Coit, to England to meet up with Holyoake’s buddy, Frederick Gould, to start what would later become the world-wide humanism movement of “right living”.

Adler had just formed the Ethical Culture Society in New York in 1876, which was in perfect parallel with the entire British Slavemaster “colonize the world” plan – revealed by Ruskin in 1870.

This is part of why you see Holyoake confidently predicting that: “the time was coming when American working men would consider social questions of far more importance than the discussion of political topics.

Of course, since men like he and Adler were going to make sure of that.

Why did they want the focus of “the people” shifted to social questions?

Well, then they wouldn’t be paying attention (hopefully) to things like the intended planned undermining of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, the creation of a federal bank again, the creation of personal income tax, and other such unimportant  sarcasm  “political topics” – seeings as how they were going to be so consumed with those “social questions”, you see.

Adler, together with his local handler and Temple Emanu-El man Joseph Seligman, were very much involved right together with Holyoake and other British propaganda agents.

Holyoake speaks on this in 1880 and reveals the real point here, that I just mentioned above. The Brits were afraid of the Americans revolting – another revolution – against their nasty little plans they had in mind for us, utilizing their long-placed infiltrators into our society and government.

revolution socialism

So, this “Co-operation” business was designed to try and channel that correct instinct over into something that would not interfere with their Empire-building plans.

Note: understand that this is British immigrants that are being talked about here with this “colony” business.

In New York I found there had lately been formed a “Co-operative Colony Aid Association” (represented by the Worker, published by Mrs. Elizabeth Thompson, and edited by the Rev. R. Heber Newton), of which Mr. E. E. Barnum, Dr. Felix Adler, Mr. E. V. Smalley, the Rev. Dr. Rylance, the Rev. Dr. Charles F. Deems, Mr. Courtland Palmer, Joseph Seligman, the Hon. John Wheeler, and others were promoters.

From inquiries in the city (which I, a stranger, thought it right to make) I found that these were persons whose names gave the society prestige.  Mrs. Thompson was regarded in the States, as the Baroness Burdett-Coutts is in England, for her many discerning acts of munificence.

[My Note: she sponsored his trip there in the first place – and he’s pretending he doesn’t know who she is until now? – See how he’s hiding their real connections going back almost 10 years at this point?]

To them I was indebted for the opportunity of addressing a remarkable audience in the Cooper Institute, New York—an audience which included journalists, authors, and thinkers on social questions, State Socialists, and Communists—an audience which only could be assembled in New York.

… I never saw the human mind at large before acting on its own account—unhampered by prelate or king.

[My Note: See? he’s studying us.]

Every error and every virtue strive there for mastery, but humanity has the best of the conflict, and progress is uppermost.

[My Note: I think there was an insult in there somewhere..lol]

…Co-operation, which substitutes evolution for revolution in securing competence to labour, may have a great career in the New World.

LITTELL’S LIVING AGE, No. 1886—August 17, 1880, A Stranger in America. (From The Nineteenth Century) By G. J. Holyoake.


Substituting evolution for revolution? Wow. That pretty much says it all.

This “worry about the workers revolting” is part of the fall-out of the time period called The Industrial Revolution which began in Great Britain (1760 to 1870).

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

British and American Slavemasters were quite literally working people to death in their zeal for what they called progress during this time period.

Note: Interestingly enough, it was Cecil-Bloc man Arnold Toynbee who brought Friedrich Engles term of Industrial Revolution (1844) to public attention in 1881. It was not generally known until Toynbee brought it forward. Engles was a German crypto-jewish immigrant, the man who brought Karl Marx to London to be an agent on behalf of the previous generation of British Slavemasters (previous to Toynbee, I mean).

It’s pretty obvious why we have British and British-loving propagandists creating “workers revolution” parties, terms, and ideas – it was part of their controlled opposition tactic.* Which point serves to make even more clear that Holyoake and Thompson were agents of the Cecil Bloc with their “worker” this, that, and the other thing.

*For more on what is their controlled opposition tactic, please see What is Secularism?

I think I’m making it quite clear, by bringing scattered pieces of this puzzle together for you, that the whole reason for all this propaganda by Holyoake and others is that British slavemasters (and their bankers such as Seligman) were absolutely terrified of what would happen if “the workers” revolted against them.

They are still terrified of that same thing – something you might want to keep in mind.

The other very important thing to keep in mind, is that the British slavemasters were using “worker’s revolts” as a means to undermine and overthrow non compos mentis Kings and rulers of other countries who could in any way vie with England for the title of King of the World. Their plan, remember – England as the mistress of half the earth.

Non compos mentis is a term meaning “not of sound mind” – which in this case means anyone who does not subscribe to the idea of England ruling the world. In modern terms, such people now get called “crazy” or “mentally ill”, or labelled sociopath and anti-social. Scientology calls them “suppressive persons” and “2 1/2 percenters” (of the total population).

Personally, I find that hilarious, especially if you read Hubbard’s slavemaster writings on how much trouble this 2 1/2 percent can cause them. He doesn’t realize how much he’s actually insulting the slavemasters in doing so – considering that they are part of the remaining 97.5 percent.

That raises another important point that you should also keep in mind.

The slavemasters fully understand that only a person operating pretty close to their “full power”, if one could say such a thing, could navigate correctly through their houses of smoke-and-mirrors and take apart all their shell games.

This is exactly why the slavemasters are terrified of just one person who does this.

So, you see, L. Ron Hubbards regurgitating of how bad these 2 1/2 percenters are, but yet at the same time inadvertently revealing JUST HOW POWERFUL they know such a small percentage can be, is quite heartening actually.

It clearly shows that they have never forgotten who we all really are, and what we are all capable of should we choose to exercise it – and that’s a good thing to know.

The slavemasters constant worry and most continuous task is to try and prevent that very thing from happening – or their game would be over. Finis. Done. No more Master-slave.

In 1882, Holyoake educated some people on what are Trade Unions, and he says they ought to be about more than just raising wages.

Nice lead-in there for the whole “evolution not revolution” campaign – wouldn’t you say?

Mr. Holyoake has always been an active leader of the Trade Unionists in England.  Many people have still only a vague idea of the objects of these organisations.  Trade unions, said Mr. Holyoake, are at present only combinations for raising wages.  But they ought to be more than this.  They ought to be combinations for increasing the skill of workmen.  In these two objects you have the whole theory of trade unions, both as to what they are and what they should be.  In answer to further questions from the EAGLE representative Mr. Holyoake said that…..


….is a plan for saving capital for working men without subscribing it.  It is obtained by buying provisions in the wholesale market for cash and selling them without credit at the usual retail market rates.  All the profits arising over the expenses of the management are saved for the purchaser, so that the more he buys the more he saves, and the larger his family the richer he gets.  The more mouths he has to feed the more provisions he has to buy, and, though it seems a paradox, the more he saves.  This is the whole theory of co-operation in a nutshell.

Co-operation is entirely distinct from Communism, which is a theory of reorganizing the State, and making the State responsible for the welfare of the individual.  Co-operation makes the individual responsible for his own welfare.

BROOKLYN EAGLE, Sept. 3, 1882, GEORGE J. HOLYOAKE – A Pleasant Chat with the Great English Secularist – TRADE UNIONS.


That last part – see how he is trying to distance from Communism? That’s actually very humorous, because it was a British-supported subject in the first place! Must have gotten a bad name and now we’re substituting CO-operation again.

This same article discussed that George had come back to America again (on behalf of the British slavemasters obviously) to “study the labor problem” in America.


Mr. Holyoake himself states that the main purpose of his present visit to America is to study the labor problem. For this purpose he will visit the chief labor centres of this country, as Chicago, Pittsburgh and other large cities famous for their work and growth.  He will find abundance of material for study and the enlightenment of his countrymen, through the press and on the platform, when he gets back.

Holyoake’s first trip to the U.S. coincided with the beginnings of the activities of a man named Henry George.


Henry George was also a british-sponsored agitator in America. And as usual for the time period, his first entrance onto the scene would be in the form of a book.

The first appearance of which was in early 1879, when his initial manuscript was declined on 22 March by D. Appleton & Co. in New York.

We have read your MS. on political economy. It has the merit of being written with great clearness and force, but is very aggressive. There is very little to encourage the publication of any such work at this time and we feel we must decline it.

Enter Holyoake and his SPR publishing connections.


Socialism in America was essentially unheard of prior to this time.

Socialism hardly existed at that time in English-speaking countries…

The History of the Fabian Society by Edward R. Pease


Henry, who was actually British, is then financed to print his book “himself” – thereby setting the stage of the supposedly unaffiliated independent philosopher image.

Accordingly, two months later, a man named Hinton offered his plant in San Francisco for type-setting the book – which George, Hinton, and a man named Taylor began the work of. The book wasn’t fully published until September of 1879.

This book proposes, (strangely similar to Holyoake) to abolish poverty by “political action”. Wow! What a coincidence right?

You can see the book for yourself here.

Another interesting portrayal in the book, also sources from other British propagandists originally. You could call this an Americanized version of Socialism, and Henry George presents the “Spaceship Earth” idea.

This is the first entrance of mixing science-fiction (as yet unknown as a genre) into political writings. This is thought to be an attempt to create newer-style fairy tales that are set in and around the Industrial Age, to attempt to motivate a “universal” view and further technological advancement to supposedly go “to the heavens”.

From book IV, chapter 2:

It is a well-provisioned ship, this on which we sail through space. If the bread and beef above decks seem to grow scarce, we but open a hatch and there is a new supply, of which before we never dreamed. And very great command over the services of others comes to those who as the hatches are opened are permitted to say, ‘This is mine!’

As to it’s use in political action within America towards the Empire-building goals of this Ruskin/Rhodes time period? It’s not much of surprise to find it immediately “sparking” controlled revolution – starting with the Irish.

The English have long had a beef with the non-subservience of the Irish – they just were never “proper subjects” – which I say with tongue firmly held in cheek. At this time, they were gaining clout with their new independence in America and it was “infecting” – as the British viewed it – their brothers and sisters at home in Ireland.

The English, as we covered earlier, were getting very worried about revolutions getting going too close to home – Ireland being a prime potential revolution-in-the-making.

So, surprise, surprise – 25 copies of “Progress and Property” get sent to a friend in New York to distribute them to the radicals leaders (as these independent minded people were called) within the large Irish community there.

Next thing you know? A man named Patrick Ford suddenly jumps up and starts promoting it.


Patrick Ford was the founder and editor of the Irish World, the largest-selling Irish-American paper of the period.

irish world ocotber 14 1871

He emigrated from Ireland during the Great Famine, and had worked as a printer’s assistant in the offices of William Lloyd Garrison’s The Liberator – this was a British propaganda outlet of the Civil War period. He began his journalistic career in 1855, and by 1861 had become editor of the Boston Tribune.

After the Civil War he settled in Charleston and edited the South Carolina Leader, then he founded his paper in New York City in 1870.

Shortly after the importation of Holyoakes socialism and labor party propaganda into the U.S. with the formation of the Workingmen’s Labor Party, in 1878, Patrick Ford added “and American Industrial Liberator” to the title of his Irish World Magazine.

In 1879 and 1880, Henry George’s book is now given a bigger press run, and media saturation using “Lovell’s Library”- which was the equivalent of the Saturday Evening Post of it’s day. Lovell had begun posting segments from George’s book in 1879.

In 1882, Lovell`s Library (Issue No. 52) brought out an edition of Henry George’s book for twenty cents.




John W. Lovell had began publishing on his own imprint in 1878 in New York. Lovell was well known as a publisher of books that were not protected by copyright laws. It reprinted cheap reprints for the masses both in series of paperbound and cloth volumes. Lovell’s Library was probably its single greatest achievement in terms of popularity.

Lovell's Library

Meanwhile – over in London, George Wyld had become the President of the Theosophy Society, but was actually part of the as yet unknown to the public, core group that would form the Society of Psychical Research – that was the direct line to the Cecil Boc. They would support the publication of John Newbrough’s Oahspe, (albeit covertly) as well as a number of other “evolutionary” front groups like Holyoake was saying was needed.

One of which was the Fabian Society.


When the first council of the Society for Psychical Research was formed, Wyld was one of its members, and Frank Podmore was one of the first to join, while meantime working with Annie Besant and George Bernard Shaw on publishing socialism pamphlets for the Fabian Society.

Pictured below are Wyld, Besant, and Podmore.


George Bernard Shaw had himself an interesting set of friends – which included Albert Einsten and Lionel Walter Rothschild.

It’s not too surprising to see that by the fall of 1880, Henry George moves to New York, where he and Patrick Ford agitate the “Irish Nationalism” movement both in American and in Ireland.

If you know anything about the British Slavemasters, just seeing that term “nationalism” is a dead giveaway as to who is really running this controlled opposition.

More than any single person, Ford deserves credit for placing the ideas of Henry George before the widest possible audience of Irish-Americans..

Now Henry gets sent to England and Ireland for a year or two “on assignment” for the Irish World magazine. Good cover, right? He’s really just connecting up with not only the other British operatives, but also infiltrating any Irish rebels.

There he became acquainted with Michael Davitt and other leaders of the Irish Land League, and with many English socialists and radicals – including Besant, Holyoake, Gould and other members of the Fabian Society, the Secular Union, the Rationalist Press Association (RPA), and so on.

Edward Pease, of the RPA, wrote a history of the Fabian Society and he brings Henry George up as being sort of the point-man for the British Slavemasters controlled opposition of this “political method” solution – which of course they preferred over being completely overthrown and kicked out of everything like in the American Revolution.

Edward Pease

“Progress and Poverty” gave an extraordinary impetus to the political thought of the time. It proposed to redress the wrongs suffered by the working classes as a whole: the poverty it considered was the poverty of the wage workers as a class, not the destitution of the unfortunate and downtrodden individuals. It did not merely propose, like philanthropy and the Poor Law, to relieve the acute suffering of the outcasts of civilisation, those condemned to wretchedness by the incapacity, the vice, the folly, or the sheer misfortune of themselves or their relations. It suggested a method by which wealth would correspond approximately with worth; by which the reward of labour would go to those that laboured; the idleness alike of rich and poor would cease; the abundant wealth created by modern industry would be distributed with something like fairness and even equality, amongst those who contributed to its production. Above all, this tremendous revolution was to be accomplished by a political method, applicable by a majority of the voters, and capable of being drafted as an Act of Parliament by any competent lawyer.

The History of the Fabian Society by Edward R. Pease


During Henry George’s visit to Britain, Frank Podmore (Fabian Society and SPR) educated Edward Pease into the teachings of Henry George, recruiting him into this cause of communistic socialism. By the following year (1883), Mr. Pease would host some meetings for Thomas Davidson to expound his ideas of a Vita Nuova, a Fellowship of the New Life – plans for a communistic society there in Britain.

Now that Henry George had received his next marching orders, he returns to New York late in 1882, amongst much rigged PR of his “hero” status.

Meanwhile, in the midst of all this distraction of the people to not “revolt” – Rockefeller formed the Standard Oil trust in 1882. It was dominated by British interests, but most people even up to today, did not know that.

The following year saw several changes in the Slavemaster “evolution not revolution” plan.

On the England end of things, Karl Marx died in London on 14 March, Anna Kingsford took over (from SPR man Gerald Massey) as President of the Theosophy Society on 20 May and changes it’s name to the London Lodge of the Theosophical Society.


But it was also when Eugenics first made it’s appearance. Sir Francis Galton, the half-cousin of Charles Darwin, invented the term eugenics in 1883 and set down many of his observations and conclusions in a book, Inquiries in Human Faculty and its Development.

1885 was a particularly busy year for the local British-run propagandists – the “evolution not revolution” kids.

Anne Besant – as part of yet another soon-to-be front group called the Rationalist Associaton – somehow found time to help Charles Watts Jr. starts a magazine called “the Literary Guide” (now called New Humanist). This is one of the oldest running magazines in the world. Right out of the starting gate, it was heavily pushing the Felix Adler (Temple Emanu-EL, New York) Ethical Culture Society doctrines.

Besant and the two Watts’s

Charles Watts Jr. was the son of Charles Watts, who was the secretary of the National Secular Society that George Holyaoke had formed together with Bradlaugh and Besant.

Meanwhile, Besant compatriots Anna Kingsford and Edward Maitland had started the Hermetic Society just previously, and were busy bashing out painfully hard to read “ancient texts” in 1885. One particularly inventive rewrite of a declamatio was The Virgin of the World, Of Hermes Mercurious Trismegistus published in London by George Redway. Apparently this had been preceded by publishing a Hargrave Jennings version of the Divine Pomander, which, said tongue firmly held in cheek, revealed ancient philosophical truths! Ahem. Ancient “truths” brought to you by live and in person by British declamatio writers – that is.

Over in America, the former “Freethought” group, Holyoake’s sister group – the American Socialistic Labor Party (sister to a group formed by Holyaoke and others) had somewhat imploded.

Guess what it became next?

The American Secular Union.

They adopted the flower “pansy” for their symbol of freethought. It was supposedly chosen because of it’s derivation from the French word pensée, which means “thought”; the pansy was so named because the flower resembles a human face, and in the month of August it nods forward as if deep in thought.

Note: Charles Watts Jr.’s father had been a leading member of the Freethought movement.

This organization – American Secular Union – had one hell of a lot of interesting connections directly tieing it to a number of other front groups.

Remember Courtlandt Palmer (spelled Courtland also) that Holyoake mentioned in 1880? He referred to this as the “aristocracy” of freethought.

I now have the pleasure of introducing Mr. Courtlandt Palmer, who will speak to you on the “Aristocracy of Freethought,” in my judgment the aristocracy not only of the present, but the aristocracy of the future.


So, this “Co-operation” business was designed to try and channel the correct instinct to revolt over into something that would not interfere with their Empire-building plans.

Note: understand that this is primarily British immigrants that are being talked about below with this “colony” business.

In New York I found there had lately been formed a “Co-operative Colony Aid Association” (represented by the Worker, published by Mrs. Elizabeth Thompson, and edited by the Rev. R. Heber Newton), of which Mr. E. E. Barnum, Dr. Felix Adler, Mr. E. V. Smalley, the Rev. Dr. Rylance, the Rev. Dr. Charles F. Deems, Mr. Courtland Palmer, Joseph Seligman, the Hon. John Wheeler, and others were promoters.

LITTELL’S LIVING AGE, No. 1886—August 17, 1880, A Stranger in America. (From The Nineteenth Century) By G. J. Holyoake.

Courtlandt, together with Felix Adler and Elizabeth Thompson – they were part of Holyoake’s British Colony-making in America – which as you recall, was nicely tied all in with Henry George and others with this whole WORKINGMEN’S labor Party.

And now here they all are again, trying to shift public perception by inventing another new front group!

They formed this sister group of the British Secular Union, on a Sunday in September, the 13th, in 1885.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN: While I have never sought any place in any organization, and while I never intended to accept any place in any organization, yet as you have done me the honor to elect me president of the American Secular Union, I not only accept the place, but tender to you each and all my sincere thanks. – Courtland Palmer



Courtlandt (born 1843 – died 1888)  formed something called the Nineteenth Century Club of New York in 1880, after a meeting with Holyoake. His daughter, Evelina, who was a beautiful woman and went on to become a dancer/performer in Europe, once said that she was greatly influenced as a child by being privy to the Club’s meetings concerning diverse topics.

The Club was patterned on the Toynbee method – which often used “book reviews” and “discussions on literature and art” as sort of their cover for why they were meeting, but it also served as a command post for deciding which books to “push” and which ones to “kill”.

The general Toynbee method, again, was:

“He would gather his friends around him; they would form an organization; they would work on quietly for a time, some at Oxford, some in London; they would prepare themselves in different parts of the subject until they were ready to strike in public.”

So Courtlandts Nineteenth Century club, (of which he was the President) would meet periodically during the winter months. Leaders of art, literature, and social science were invited to speak and their remarks are followed by open discussion. Members of the masonic organization – the B’nai B’rith – were also involved.

In a congress of that club in 1884, it was proposed to combine the Workingmen’s Party and the Nineteenth Century Club into this NEW front group – the American Secular Union.

Felix Adler and others proposed a New Church of HumanityAnimatedStar. Which is the same thing that John Newbrough (Another British-fostered propagandist) had proposed in his Oahspe book just 2 years earlier, as well as SPR – Society for Psychical Research – board member Frederick Myers in his two-volume book The Human Personality and Its Survival of Bodily Death Volume I and Volume II .

AnimatedStarThe Church of Humanity New York’s Worshipping Positivists, Courtlandt Palmer: Tributes Offered by Members of the Nineteenth Century Club to its Founder and First President (New York, 1889), p. 155.

Note: also see Scientology Roots, chapter 21-5 for much more info on Myers book.

So, that puts Adler, Newbrough, Myers, Palmer, Watts Jr. and Holyoake all working together.


This Congress proposed to change the name of the organization to the AMERICAN SECULAR UNION, elected Robert Ingersoll president, Putnam secretary, Charles Watts first vice-president, and Courtlandt Palmer treasurer, but he was later asked to be President.

Charles Watts Jr. – Mr. propaganda press in Britain – being the obligatory British agent on the board.

Courtlandt was also connected to former Theosophy President and SPR board member Gerald Massey – nice interconnected crowd these slavemaster propagandists are.

“For instance, Courtlandt Palmer, the President of the Nineteenth Century Club, testifies that he heard Mr. Massey’s lecture in New York with the most profound interest; and although a Positivist himself, he says Mr. Massey’s facts and deductions are of the utmost value according to any theory of the world.”

Now we have another word being thrown around, just to confuse things even more. Did you notice it?


This was from another British propagandist, Richard Congreve, who was a disciple of Auguste Comte and founder of the Church of Humanity in London.

Temple Enamu-El had several feet in this organization (besides Felix Adler). Rabbi Gottheil was one of the Vice-Presidents of the Club.

So, now that we have all these nice new front groups in place, we have our New York based anglophiles and British agents all networked up – in 1886 Henry George gets picked to run for Mayor of New York!

On behalf of…you guess it…another rename of a rename. The United Labor Party – resurrected as a “new” political party up against the Democrat and Republican parties.

This new party, had, of course, “strong backing” by the former Socialist Labor Party now called the American Secular Union.

He ran against…can you guess?

Theodore Roosevelt! (who was the Republican Party candidate). He came in second.


Democrat Hewitt won – as apparently expected.

George came in third with between 5,000 and 15,000 Jewish votes, many of which had previously gone to Tammany Democrats. This heralded the subsequent widespread Jewish participation in New York City politics and consequently the importance of the Jewish vote.

The key thing about this election that’s interesting, is that it was a trial run of “getting the Jewish vote” – something another Roosevelt would find useful later on down the road in getting himself elected President of the United States, so that he could push American into another British war – again.

They test things like that – and have very, very long plans in mind, sometimes 50 years into the future.

This is the environment in which the Fabian Society – with the symbol of the wolf in sheep’s clothing – comes into heavy play in England.

In 1886, unemployment in Britain as at an all-time high – which in my opinion, could almost literally be that the Cecil Bloc was trying to soften up the people for the new “state” Socialism that would arrive in the 20th century.

Frank Podmore and Annie Besant were brought on board the Executive Committee of the Fabian Society, and the first thing they did was compose what was called Tract 4 What Socialism Is.

It began with a historical preface, touching on the Wars of the Roses, Tudor confiscation of land, the enclosure of commons, the Industrial Revolution, and so on. The “valuable work “of Trade Unionism was alluded to (which was Holyoake, Besant, and others earlier work):

“…indeed the modern syndicalist doctrine was anticipated: the workman, it is said, “has been forced to sell himself for a mess of pottage and is consequently deprived of the guidance of his own life and the direction of his own labour.

The Fabian Society was governed bythe seven Essayists, and chiefly by four or five of them. Podmore, Besant, Sidney Webb, and George Bernard Shaw.

“… among ourselves, talked revolution, anarchism, labour notes versus pass-books, and all the rest of it, on the tacit assumption that the object of our campaign, with its watchwords, ‘EDUCATE, AGITATE, ORGANIZE,’ was to bring about a tremendous smash-up of existing society, to be succeeded by complete Socialism.

George Bernard Shaw as quoted in The History of the Fabian Society by Edward R. Pease

Note: Annie Besant, in all her propagandist be-bopping around, would land in yet another front group a little later on (1888) – the marxist-based Social Democratic Foundation of socialist William Morris. She remained a member for a number of years and became one of its best speakers – all while still a member of Fabian Society.

Besides the fact that it just became obvious where the ideas for the “evolution revolution” of 1960’s America came from, this 19th century propaganda also has some bearing on other Slavemaster front groups, the religious kind.

Even right up to today these same slavemaster “evolution revolution” principles are still used to try and re-invent stinky old propaganda.

The current “moving beyond” Scientology comes to mind as a prime (and recent) example.

That is a problem. The problem being for one thing – slavemaster propaganda is always just plain dirty as to its real intent, no matter how innocent some dupe wants to think it is. It just never compares to the real thing. The other problem being that simply referring people from one cult propagandist (slavemaster backed) to a supposed non-cult propagandist (also slavemaster backed) doesn’t solve a damn thing.

People still feel short-changed; they still do not have their questions answered as to what the hell is going on around here; they still know that somehow…things should be different.

It is to those people, (and anyone else interested for that matter) that we provide a more well-rounded and comprehensive view of history.

Real revolution needs no violence, no banners, no groups or organizations.

It just needs YOU to look, learn, and understand, and never stop really looking, learning, and understanding.

SEE them. SEE through their BS dead-end roads – wherever they are.

That’s all it takes.

Why do you think so many front groups are vying for your attention?

Because they really do worry about that 2 1/2 percent that just doesn’t quite buy all these “choices” as actually being choices.

And, they really do know just how important reaching ONE person can be.

Four hundred years of plotting and planning and propaganda – and they are still afraid.

See how important you are?
