Fabianism

The system called Collectivism. (See Collectivists.)

“It must be evident that the Fabian Society has a really gigantic task before it, the difficulties of which will not be lightened when the working classes come to understand that small ownership ... and small savings ... are just as strongly condemned by Collectivists as large estates and colossal fortunes.” —Nineteenth Century (November, 1892, p. 686
