The Fabian Society is a British organisation that was founded in 1884.
It aimed – and still aims – to promote socialist ideas and policies through a very slow and reformist approach. The society’s members include intellectuals, politicians (such as Tony Blair) and activists who advocate for social justice, equality and other neo-Marxist nonsense.
In spite of very few people knowing much about the Fabian Society, it has played a significant role in shaping British political thought and influencing policymaking, including the establishment of the National Health Service (NHS) and the welfare state.
The society’s emblem is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, symbolising its belief in the power of socialism to change society from within.
Rob Duigan chatted to me about all of the above and more. The irony is that, while the Fabian Society was – and is – not a secret society (unlike the Bilderberg Group), it has existed for well over a century under the radar of most.
