Fabianism (19TH CENTURY- )

British theory of socialism associated with the Fabian Society; particularly with its leading early members Beatrice and Sidney Webb (1859-1943 and 1858-1947). Named after Roman general Q Fabius Maximus Verrucosus ( -203) – nicknamed ‘Cunctator’ meaning ‘the delayer’ – who won his battles by slow attrition of the enemy.

Capitalist societies are evolving peacefully towards the highest form of rational organization through a state organized both locally and centrally, which is socialism.

The most effective means of assisting this development is thorough research and the dissemination of information.
