LONDON, ENGLAND — Most people in today’s world have never heard of the Fabian Socialists, founded in 1884 London. But the tentacles of this group have spread into virtually every element of modern life, beginning in England and from there to the United States. Their goals have been achieved through the theory of gradualism and inevitability.
As things change right in front of your eyes, you do not see it coming thru gradualism until it is upon you, and by then it is inevitable. Gradual change over a long period of time to slowly transforms a state as opposed to using violent revolution for change. It is essentially socialism by stealth, a slow march toward World Government.
“This new and complete Revolution we contemplate can be defined in a few words. It is outright World-Socialism, scientifically planned and directed.” H G Wells, “The New World Order” – 1939
The Coat of Arms of the Fabian Socialists is a “Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing.”
The Fabian Society was chartered by the British Crown with the purpose of ushering in the One World Collectivism State through gradualism rather than violent revolution. This would become the basis for what is today called Fabian Socialism.
The word Fabian derives from the Roman General Fabius, known for carefully planned strategies to slowly wear down his enemy over an extended period of time. This is similar to the way Fabian Socialism works to implement its agenda of a one-world state. It is not a coincidence that the international symbol for Fabian Socialism is a turtle, along with the motto: “ When I strike, I strike hard.”
The earliest members of the Fabian Society were: HG Wells; George Bernard Shaw; Sidney Webb; Beatrice Webb; Annie Bessant; and Graham Wallace. Of those, Graham Wallas would become the person who went to the United States to spread the teachings of the Fabian Society.
Out of the Fabian Society came the British Labor Party, the London School of Economics and the International Criminal Court. In recent years, the most notable member has been former Prime Minister Tony Blair who has been pictured standing next to the ‘Fabian Window’ – important symbolism depicting two people hammering the earth into shape on an anvil, below the Society’s Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing emblem.
Above the window an inscription proclaims: “Remould it nearest to the heart’s desire.”
“Under Socialism, you would not be allowed to be poor. You would be forcibly fed, clothed, lodged, taught and employed whether you liked it or not. If it were discovered that you had not character and industry enough to be worth all this trouble, you might possibly be executed in a kindly manner, but whilst you were permitted to live, you would have to live well”. George Bernard Shaw
Fabians also played a large part in the creation of the League of Nations — the forerunner of the United Nations — and were extremely influential in creating the U.N. itself.
A synthesis of Socialism and Capitalism evolved, often defined as the Third Way, or Communitarianism, which centers on the belief that individualism is to be relinquished for the “greater good” of the state. The theory is that years of individual freedom have weakened the bonds of community. Individual rights must be balanced against the interest of society. This means a return to the values and morality – something best fostered by ‘Community Organizations.’
