"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Griffin: The Future Is Calling


The Fabian Window - click to enlarge
"Dear love, couldst thou and I with fate conspire
to grasp this sorry scheme of things entire,
would we not shatter it to bits
and then remould it nearer to the heart's desire?"

The following is extracted from a paper by an American: G Edward Griffin, April 2009.

In countries where parliamentary traditions are strong, the primary tactic for both of these groups [Fabians & Leninists] is to send their agents into the power centres of society to capture control from the inside. Power centres are those organizations and institutions that represent all the politically influential segments of society. These include labour unions, political parties, church organizations, segments of the media, educational institutions, civic organizations, financial institutions, and industrial corporations, to name just a few.

The combined influence of all these bodies adds up to the total political power of a nation. To capture control of a nation, all that is needed is to control its power centres, and that has been the strategy of Leninists and Fabians alike.

They may disagree over style; they may compete over which of them will dominate the coming New World Order, over who will hold the highest positions in the pyramid of power; they may even send opposing armies into battle to establish territorial pre-eminence over portions of the globe, but they never quarrel over goals. Through it all, they are blood-brothers, and they will always unite against their common enemy, which is any opposition to collectivism. It is impossible to understand what is unfolding in the War on Terrorism today without being aware of that reality.

In America, during the big bailout in the Spring of 2009 when taxpayers paid for the staggering business losses of financial institutions and manufacturing companies, the lion’s share – over a trillion dollars within the first few months of the year – went to corporate sponsors of the Council on Foreign Relations. That included American Express, Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch, AIG, Citibank, Morgan Stanley, Bank of New York, Freddie Mac, Chrysler, and JP Morgan Chase. The man in charge of administering the bailouts was Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner, who is not only a member of the CFR but formerly employed on its staff.


Okay, so it was written from an American viewpoint but things are no different in Britain.

Margaret Cole, Chairman of the Fabian Society, 1955/56: "It plainly emerges that the basic similarities were much greater than the differences, that the basic Fabian aims of the abolition of poverty, through legislation and administration; of the communal control of production and social life …, were pursued with unabated energy by people trained in Fabian traditions, whether at the moment of time they called themselves Fabians or loudly repudiated the name…."

The Labour Party was formed with the support of the Fabian Society; the Fabian Society founded the London School of Economics.
In 1945 so many Fabians were elected (over 220) that the parliamentary Labour party was said to "look just like an enormous Fabian school".

Since the 1997 general election there have been around 200 Fabian MPs in the Commons, amongst whom number nearly the entire cabinet, including Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Robin Cook, Jack Straw, David Blunkett and Clare Short.

The text for this video was written by Michael Savage, the outspoken American radio commentator - now we can see why he's been banned from entering the UK.

  1. There is so much that appears to go almost unquestioned. For example, most people, I think, would say that it was only a crank who would question the need to raise the 'standard of living'.

    Well, I question it. When will the 'standard of living' be high enough that we no longer need to raise it? When will we have had enough 'economic growth'?

    All of these economic and social concepts are self-sustaining: useful to the Fabians, and anyone else who believes it is their right to 'change the world', by providing never-ending reasons to assert more control.

  2. That's the Fabians' whole raison d'etre T - create a problem, solve a problem; break something down and then rebuild differently. That's what our political system is - faux democracy.

  3. Cracking post. I'm also an E Edward Griffin fan. Check out the weekly (on Wednesdays) Fox "Freedom Watch" with Judge Napolitano. He raises issues which are not raised here. Even Glenn Beck has wised up! What happens in America, happens here, and vice versa - our governments are coordinating socio-economic programs.
