GLENN: Here is George Bernard Shaw, probably the most famous Fabian
socialist, what we would call a progressive here in America.

SHAW: You must all know half a dozen people at least who are no use in this
world, who are more trouble than they are worth. Just put them there and say
Sir, or Madam, now will you be kind enough to justify your existence? If you
can’t justify your existence, if you’re not pulling your weight, and since you
won’t, if you’re not producing as much as you consume or perhaps a little more,
then, clearly, we cannot use the organizations of our society for the purpose of
keeping you alive, because your life does not benefit us and it can’t be of very
much use to yourself.

GLENN: Okay. Stop. So, he’s saying here we must all know people that, you know,
are a burden to society and just put them in front and say justify your life and
if they can’t justify what they do for society, well, then we just will have to
kill them. We don’t you don’t your life has no purpose to us. Does it’s cold and
calculating as someone saying I could put a pillow over the face of a child so,
who are these Fabian socialists? Fabian socialists will make you believe that,
oh, well, that’s old stuff, just exactly the way the progressives do now. They
dismiss their history, but can you tell me, can a bad can a bad tree bear good
fruit? Can a seed of can could the Nazis, could could Stalin grow anything that
is good? Could a seed that comes from Stalin grow anything good? Could it?

Philosophically I don’t think so. I don’t think so. The progressives and the
Fabian socialists want to deny or distance themselves, all the while Hillary
Clinton says I’m an early more than, early 20th century American progressive.
That’s who George Bernard Shaw was hanging out with and they had the same
elitist kind of ideas. It is where it is where the idea of eugenics, breed the
perfect race, breed a better voter. So, here’s the Fabian socialists, their
plan. These are just their these are just their goals and, again, there’s no
Star Chamber here. These are all stated.

No. 1, a strong, centralized government. Do you agree with that? No. 2, a
powerful executive at the expense of Congress and the judicial. No. 3,
government controlled banking, credit, and securities exchange. Do you agree
with these so far? How many ask if you agree with them and then ask how many
have been done. No. 4, government control over employment. No. 5, unemployment
insurance and old age pensions. No. 6, universal medical care, food, and
universal housing programs. By the way, did I tell you in an unrelated move that
Fannie and Freddie, the government, will be underwriting 98% of all loans this
year and they’re about to stop all foreclosures. Anyway, I don’t know what the
universal housing program here in the Fabian socialist made me think of that,
but No. 7, access to unlimited government borrowing. No. 8, a managed monetary
system. No. 9, government control over foreign aid. No. 10, government control
over all natural energy sources, transportation, and agricultural production.
No. 11, government regulation of labor. No. 12 I find this one fascinating youth
camps devoted to health discipline, community service, and idealogical teaching
consistent with those of the authorities. Who was it that said we should have a
youth oh, I remember. It was Andy Stern recently. Hey, wait a minute. Andy Stern
I know is a progressive in Workers of the World Unite and I know that Richard
Trumpka has been speaking at the Fabian socialist. I wonder no. I’m sure it’s a
coincidence. Andy Stern, oh, and the Center For American Progress, John Podesta
and George Soros. Hum. Anyway, George Soros is American Center For American
Progress had this idea that Andy Stern came up with all by himself in complete
complete coincidence. He was talking about we should have 15 to 24 year olds do
community service and we could pay them for it and we’ll create a million and a
half jobs overnight. No. 13, heavy progressive taxation.

Have these been done? If they’re not finished yet, they’re pretty darn close.
So, now who are the world leaders, because, remember, as the world goes into
chaos, who are the world leaders?
