The Fabian Society and America’s Future

Glenn Beck just quoted George Bernard Shaw. Here is the quote:

You must all know half a dozen people at least who are no use in this world, who are more trouble than they are worth. Just put them there and say Sir, or Madam, now will you be kind enough to justify your existence? If you can’t justify your existence, if you’re not pulling your weight, and since you won’t, if you’re not producing as much as you consume or perhaps a little more, then, clearly, we cannot use the organizations of our society for the purpose of keeping you alive, because your life does not benefit us and it can’t be of very much use to yourself.

Who was George Bernard Shaw? You probably know him as a famous playwright. He was, however, first and foremost, a socialist. He supported women’s rights, equality of income, and the abolition of private property. He studied the writings of political philosopher Karl Marx. After studying Marx, Shaw began a career in speaking against capitalism and writing socialist propaganda. He joined the Fabian Society in 1884 and served on its executive committee from 1885 to 1911.

Who are the Fabians? This is a political group who organized literally to change the world. The “Fabians” were named after Fabius, the famous Roman general which opposed Hannibal as they were “biding their time” until they would “strike hard”.

Why am I writing about Shaw and the Fabian Society here?

I write because they still exist and are a threat today:

You will never hear a Fabian defend legitimate national law based in the U.S. Bill of Rights. They call individual liberty and freedom “old-fashioned” and “outdated.” Fabian propagandists distort reality. Their goal is to confuse and manipulate free people into giving up their freedom for world peace and security. Fabians say the American principles for freedom must be balanced in order to “save the planet” and “stop global terrorism.” (They never admit they’re the terrorists.)

The question may arise, did Glenn Beck quote George Bernard Shaw out of context and cause him to appear to say something he did not mean? You decide. Here are  passages with the sources given:


“We should find ourselves committed to killing a great many people whom we now leave living, and to leave living a great many people whom we at present kill. We should have to get rid of all ideas about capital punishment …

A part of eugenic politics would finally land us in an extensive use of the lethal chamber. A great many people would have to be put out of existence simply because it wastes other people’s time to look after them.”

Source: George Bernard Shaw, Lecture to the Eugenics Education Society, Reported in The Daily Express, March 4, 1910.


“The moment we face it frankly we are driven to the conclusion that the community has a right to put a price on the right to live in it … If people are fit to live, let them live under decent human conditions. If they are not fit to live, kill them in a decent human way. Is it any wonder that some of us are driven to prescribe the lethal chamber as the solution for the hard cases which are at present made the excuse for dragging all the other cases down to their level, and the only solution that will create a sense of full social responsibility in modern populations?”

Source: George Bernard Shaw, Prefaces (London: Constable and Co., 1934), p. 296.

According to Russell Sparks, Eugenics was a “widespread progressive cause promoted by the Fabian Society.”

The idea of redistribution of wealth is one of the goals of the Fabian Society.

More on this topic at a later date…

  1. The subject about the Fabian Society is a phenomenal example that really gives one pause as to how poor, yet fragile, the modern educational system is and how it is possible for any civilization to become susceptible in being fundamentally transformed in the light of day. . . . by the will of the devil.

    Despicable and venomous Dr. Hans Conrad Julius Reiter was one of the first physicians to swear an oath of allegiance to Adolph Hitler in 1932 and was one of the most prominent members of a the eugenics movement that advocated killing all people who had any physical or mental disability whatever. In 1937, as a result of his disgusting beliefs, he was appointed president of the Reich Health Office. He declared that it is medicine’s responsibility to stop further transmission of inferior genes. Disgusting Dr. Reiter sanctioned medical experiments that killed thousands of unfortunate human beings at Buchenwald Concentration camp. He gave the orders to perform and he supervised many medical atrocities. One documented experiment was to infect 250 prisoners at Buchenwald with rickettsia and then kill them.

    Dr Von Verschuer was Dr Mengele’s mentor. He somehow escaped any serious punishment.

    best, Paolo­tmar_von_Verschuer
    The founders of The Mankind Quarterly included some of the most renowned scholars of their time in the field of anthropology and related disciplines. In the course of its 45-year existence its editorial board has included the following distinguished scholars:
    Mankind Quarterly, Founding scholars:
    Genetics: David C. Rife (New Delhi), J.D.J. Hofmeyr (Pretoria); O. von Verschuer (Muenster) ***
    Verschuer was Mengele’s mentor in racial hygiene. This is the quarterly mentioned in the Atlantic magazine post, below. So the scientist Matare who is quoted favors these ideas.
    Lately, though, Mataré’s scientific attention has wandered from physics to eugenics. He has written two books on the subject and become a frequent contributor to a pseudo-scientific journal called Mankind Quarterly. Among its founders was a Nazi doctor who conducted experimental genetic research on cadavers he obtained from Auschwitz. (Verschuer)

    Do not forget what a large part that the Fabian Society played and the theorists of the Fabian Society played in the modern vegan animal rights social movement of groups like Animal Liberation Front (anti vivisectionist), HSUS (utalitarian and sentinent theories) PETA, (anti vivisectionist and all the rest of the theories developed by the Fabian Society). Peter Singer and his eugenics thoughts of killing children less than 2 and was “the father” of the modern animal right movement. Of course Fabian Society is never mentioned….in the animal rights movement but much can be found on the internet in people long ago they quote, most were theorists or as we say today philosophers and many were agnostic or athiest.
    Hitler in 1933 was installed laws for animal rights, especially those vivisectionist who were Jewish who carried out ritual slaughter for religious purposes. Many Jews were sent to concentration camps. Hitler used these laws to target a certain segment of people and we know his thoughts on eugenics. The Jews are still being persecuted today about religious slaughter. Wish Beck recognized this. I started looking into this after a friends show dogs were confiscated (17) she was found innocent court, the shelter sued for payment (300,000 dollars initially) the day after the verdict, Since the county was also sued, part of the money was paid by the county. She lost her job because whe was labeled as an animal abuser and the shelter is sueing nafter a picture of her home and address was put on the internet on and animal rights blog and now she is being sued for the balance of the payment. This has gone on over two years. Her children had nightmares a year after the confiscation happened especially one child who slept with her oldest champion dog. The animal control officer felt she had “too many dogs” but yet not were found to be mistreated in any way. This happens to many people who are in just involved in a sport with their dogs have become targets of this movement, and I wanted to know how a miscarriage of justice as this could come about and it led me back to the United Kingdom and the Fabian Society which was formed to push socialistic ideals – but slowly, across the world. When our politicians side with uneeded laws that push the agenda of animal rights and that a child is just as important as a skunk, I just can’t see their rationale of association with uneeded laws that just produce more shelter dogs and remove dogs from homes that are well cared for I have to wonder along with the campaign of zero population growth and anti meat eating, if their agenda is not more sinister.

    I have to wonder about Obama and one of his “czars” is Cass Susteine and if I can find it that a person who was recently hired for the Fabian Society was one of Obama’s campaign workers working directly with Obama. Isn’t this getting a little scary?
    Sorry for the long post but I am beginning to see the light or some would say, darkness in what our world is now experiencing and Americans should be proud of being “elitists” as this country was formed from scratch as most were fleeing from religious or political persecution and “America” developed their own government and the first country to do so in a long, long, long time and the founding fathers did a great job……but we all see this changing and that is the scary part, at least those of us who are older with grandchildren that want them to experience world like they did. One reason to contact your government officials if you do not like a law being proposed because there are many working on the other side to see it followed through and they need to hear directly from “we the people”, not only we the lobbyist, or we the corporation or other special interest groups.

      Another scary thing is the part Margaret Sanger played in establishing Planned Parenthood. Did you see my recent post on her? She had many of the same ideas as Hitler, yet the liberal media and those who want to keep abortion legal have “cleaned up” her past and are using tax money to honor her with an exhibit at the Smithsonian institute in Washington. The bad guys are not the ones who preached extermination of the black race. The bad guys are the people who tell the truth about Margaret Sanger. We are living in an upside down world.
