What is a Fabian Socialist?
Politically Correct Resolution:
A Fabian Socialist is one who deceptively advocates a Marxist society; who seeks to achieve reform gradually, rather than through revolutionary means, by using the capitalistic system to fulfill their ideology of "Greedism"! For the Fabians, exploiting other ideologies is a useful tool!
The Fabian Society was founded on 4 January 1884 in London as an offshoot of a society founded in 1883 called The Fellowship of the New Life. When some members wanted to become politically involved to aid society's "fundamental transformation", it was decided that a separate society, the Fabian Society, also be set up. All members were free to attend both societies. The Fabian Society additionally advocated renewal of Western European Renaissance (Intellectual Awakening) ideas and their promulgation throughout the rest of the world.
The Fabian Society, was named – in honor of the Roman general Fabius Maximus (nicknamed "Cuncutator", meaning "the Delayer"). His Fabian strategy advocated tactics of harassment and attrition rather than head-on battles.
The Fabian strategy is a strategy where pitched battles and frontal assaults are avoided in favor of wearing down an opponent (the people) through a war of attrition and misdirection. While still avoiding decisive battles, the side employing this strategy harasses its enemy (the people) through skirmishes to cause chaos, attrition, disrupted supplies and to affect morale. Employment of this strategy implies that the eventual winners (the powers that are or want to be) believes that time is on their side. It was adopted when no feasible alternative strategy could be devised.
The first Fabian Society advocated tenets of social justice to influence the "Spirit of the times" of Liberal reforms (shifting from a laissez-faire system to a more "Collective" system during the early 1900s). These Fabian proposals were considerably more PROGRESSIVE than those that were enacted in the Liberal reform legislation at the time. It continues to this day.
At the core of the Fabian Society were Sidney and Beatrice Webb (Both, socialist reformers and co founders of the London School of Economics and Political Social Sciences-LSE). Together, they wrote numerous studies of industrial Britain, including alternative co-operative economics that applied to ownership of capital as well as land. Beatrice coined the term "Collective Bargaining"!
When the Twentieth Century began, the "Progressives" adopted
the "Keynesian" Theory of Economics which continued until
the end of the 1970's. In the "Reagan Era" the "Friedman"
Theory of Economics was adopted. Beginning with the first Bush
Presidential Administration, this nation's economic system
returned to the "Keynesian" Theory, with another war of
In the period between the two World Wars and after the end of the Second World War, the "Second Generation" Fabians became a major influence on social-democratic thought. It was at this time that many of the future leaders of the World were exposed to Fabian thought, which made it much easier to implement an international central banking system in every country of the World. (You know, that International thing called "Globalization")
