The Fabian Society is a British socialist organisation whose purpose is to advance the principles of democratic socialism via gradualist and reformist effort in democracies, rather than by revolutionary overthrow. As one of the founding organisations of the Labour Representation Committee in 1900, and as an important influence upon the Labour Party which grew from it, the Fabian Society has had a powerful influence on British politics.
Blair even published a Fabian Society pamphlet, timed to coincide with his election, boldly entitled Socialism. Tony Blair’s acceptance speech was not one of those occasions on which you announce policy; rather, it was a time for showing yourself to the people and playing your theme song. Mr. Blair did this very well.
Its past-v-future graph might have been lifted wholesale from a Fabian pamphlet of the 1960s. In the future, said Blair, we should emphasise the causes of crime, community service for non-serious offenders, less police red tape, special units for mentally ill prisoners, more contact with prisoners' families, more drug rehabilitation, and keeping "career criminals" separate from the rest.

The name Fabian Society was explained in the first Fabian pamphlet which carried the note
The name Fabian Society was explained in the first Fabian pamphlet which carried the note. For the right moment you must wait, as Fabius did most patiently, when warring against Hannibal, though many censured his delays; but when the time comes you must strike hard, as Fabius did, or your waiting will be in vain, and fruitless. The Early Fabians: Educate, Agitate, Organise. The Fabian Society emerged in 1884 as an off-shoot of the Fellowship of the New Life. The new Society soon attracted some of the most prominent left-wing thinkers of the late Victorian era to its ranks.
