George Bernard Shaw: Fabian Socialist

Remember the George Bernard Shaw that is part of our school curriculum?  He's a Fabian Socialist.  I bet that part doesn't get taught to our children.

From "Brotherhood of Darkness:"

"In England, the Labor Party acts as a front group for the Fabian Socialist Society which was organized in 1884 by George Bernard Shaw and his friends. Shaw explained socialism in his book, An Intelligent Woman's Guide to Socialism and Capitalism, but his definition is seldom mentioned today because the Socialist International doesn't want people to know what lies ahead.  George Bernard Shaw wrote:"
"I also made it quite clear that socialism means equality of income or nothing, and that under Socialism you would not be allowed to be poor. You would be forcibly fed, clothed, lodged, taught, and employed whether you liked it or not. If it were discovered that you had not character and industry enough to be worth all this trouble, you might possibly be executed in a kindly manner; but whilst you were permitted to live you would have to live well. . . . As far as I know I was the first Socialist writer to whom it occurred to state this explicitly as a necessary postulate of permanent civilization...."  --George Bernard Shaw
