Fabian Tracts: Method of Propaganda
PGA Weblog ^

Posted on 11/23/2012 9:08:52 AM PST by ProgressingAmerica

In "The Encyclopedia of Social Reform", W. D. P. Bliss(Founder, Fabian Society U.S.A.) writes the following: (Page 579)

The great literary success of the society, however, has been its Fabian Essays. In 1889 a course of seven lectures, which had been previously delivered before the society by membersof the society (George Bernard Shaw, Sidney Webb, William Clarke, S. Olivier, Graham Wallas, Annie Besant, and Hubert Bland) was published under the name of Fabian Essays in Socialism, and met with most marked success. Over 30,000 copies have been sold in England, and two American editions have appeared. The tracts are accurate and concise statements of industrial facts or explanations of the application of the principles of socialism to actual and existing political and social problems.

This is of course a pretty generic laudatory statement. But what's tucked into the sidebar is this:

Method of Propaganda

This is repeated by G. D. H. Cole, who was a part of the Fabian Executive and was at one time the Society's Executive Chair. Cole wrote Fabian Tract # 238 titled: "Some essentials of socialist propaganda: a tract for the times".

This is an important part of the process of "permeation".

If anybody wants on/off the revolutionary progressivism ping list, send me a message

Progressives do not want to discuss their own history. I want to discuss their history.

The Fabian Society, a Union of Minds that reach out over the centuries and set a course for mankind and its control, from top to bottom.

FDR , Obama , and others so enlightened fought and fight today to further enslave the individual to the state and the populace to the elite ruling class that hold every rein of the wagon team firmly.

IMHO, the only way to defeat a PR campaign is with another PR campaign.

I posted an idea here:

Please let me know if you’d like to be on the list.

Thanks for sharing the trailer, Ron.

I'm surprised I have not heard of this film before, especially given the subject matter, the people involved and the obvious production quality. I'm going to buy it.

What has happened, and is happening to our country is not the result of a shadowy "conspiracy", but a plan first formulated many years ago, supplemented and redirected over time by individuals and organizations, many of whom are now in positions of influence and authority.

In consideration of organizing opposition to the radical agenda now upon us, I believe there are three initial targets at which to begin chipping away: local governments, the vast left-wing institutional funding network, and most importantly: the educational system.

In the process, we ought not kid ourselves that results will be achieved overnight. It took one hundred years to bring about the "change" now prevalent in our nation and society. What we begin to do now will benefit our children and grandchildren more than ourselves.

But everyone who cares about liberty must join the fight now: through your local Tea Party organizations, web sites, town halls and school boards, neighborhood watch groups, and in many other public places. We need not agree on everything - no two people ever do. But we must agree on the fundamental conditions for human freedom: constitutionally limited government, a recognition of inalienable and God-given human rights, the primacy of the individual over the collective, personal responsibility, and the sanctity of life.

Make you voices heard, and be not afraid
