How dangerous, and to what extent is Barack Obama a threat to The United States? Well, if you happen to be a Fabian Socialist, he is a dream come true. But if you happen to be constitutionally minded traditionalist who takes great pride in the history of America, Obama might as well be Satan. Barack Obama appears to be so in love with Fabian Socialism that he named his Hollywood produced campaign video shown below after the famous book by socialist Stuart Chase, titled The Road We Are Traveling. Obama called his video The Road We’ve Traveled, hosted by none other than Tom Hanks. The comparison is more than a coincidence; it’s an insider’s nod to the kind of economic theory by Chase who helped give FDR’s New Deal its name – an act that Barack Obama reveres greatly.
The biggest difference between a Fabian Socialist and a regular socialist is that the Fabian believed in a long gradual, patient change to society rather than one brought about by revolution such as the method used in the U.S.S.R. to deliver that country to communism. Fabianists rather took the slow route which was the preferred method of Stuart Chase.

Fabian Society, British socialist educational organization that advocates social change through democratic reforms. It was founded in London in 1884 by a group of intellectuals who rejected the Marxist theory of class struggle but wished to promote equality through collective ownership and democratic control of the nation’s resources. Devoted primarily to education and social research, the Fabians never constituted themselves as a political party. However, in 1900 they participated in founding the Labour Representation Committee, now the Labour Party.
Stuart Chase (March 8, 1888, Somersworth, New Hampshire – November 16, 1985) was an American economist and engineer trained at MIT. His writings covered topics as diverse as general semantics and physical economy. Chase’s thought was shaped by Henry George, Thorstein Veblen and Fabian socialism. Chase spent his early political career supporting “a wide range of reform causes: the single tax, women’s suffrage, birth control and socialism.”  Chase’s early books The Tragedy of Waste (1925) and Your Money’s Worth (1928) were notable for their criticism of corporate advertising and their advocacy of consumer protection.
Chase was among the dozen or more prominent members of the temporary committee which conducted the affairs of the Technical Alliance which later formed into Technocracy Incorporated, (Technocracy movement).
Although not a Marxist, Chase admired the planned economy of the Soviet Union, being impressed with it after a 1927 visit. Chase stated that “The Russians, in a time of peace, have answered the question of what an economic system is for”.
It has been suggested that he was the originator of the expression a New Deal, which became identified with the economic programs of American president Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He wrote a cover story in The New Republic entitled “A New Deal for America”, during the week that Roosevelt gave his 1932 presidential acceptance speech promising a new deal, but whether Roosevelt’s speechwriter Samuel Rosenman saw the magazine is not clear.
His 1938 book The Tyranny of Words was an early (perhaps the earliest, predating Hayakawa) and influential popularization of Alfred Korzybski‘s general semantics.
Chase supported the isolationist movement and was against US entry in World War II, advocating this position in his 1939 book The New Western Front.
In the 1960s, Chase lent his support to the Johnson administration’s Great Society policies.
Chase is famous for the quote at the end of his book A New Deal, “Why should Russians have all the fun remaking a world?” — a reference to the “socialist experiment” in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR).
He is quoted in S. I. Hayakawa‘s Language in Thought and Action as having said, “Common sense is that which tells us the world is flat.”
On pages 95 and 96 of The Road We Are Traveling, under the heading of “Free Enterprise into ‘X'”, Chase listed 18 characteristics of political economy that he had observed among Russia, Germany, Italy, Japan, and Spain between 1913 and 1942. Chase labeled this phenomenon “… something called ‘X'”. Characteristics include the following:
- A strong, centralized government.
- An executive arm growing at the expense of the legislative and judicial arms.
- The control of banking, credit and security exchanges by the government.
- The underwriting of employment by the government, either through armaments or public works.
- The underwriting of social security by the government – old-age pensions, mothers’ pensions, unemployment insurance, and the like.
- The underwriting of food, housing, and medical care, by the government.
- The use of deficit spending to finance these underwritings.
- The abandonment of gold in favor of managed currencies.
- The control of foreign trade by the government.
- The control of natural resources.
- The control of energy sources.
- The control of transportation.
- The control of agricultural production.
- The control of labor organizations.
- The enlistment of young men and women in youth corps devoted to health, discipline, community service and ideologies consistent with those of the authorities.
- Heavy taxation, with special emphasis on the estates and incomes of the rich.
- Control of industry without ownership.
- State control of communications and propaganda.
It is clear that after watching Barack Obama for nearly five years as of this writing, he is attempting to bring to America the implementation of all 18 items on Stuart Chase’s list. For political insiders, who Obama’s title for his campaign video was a wink and a nod to their real intentions as most Americans had no idea what a Fabian Socialist was, the intentions are extraordinarily clear. Most people don’t even understand what the history of the Labour Party in England was, which was the party of Tony Blair who got along so very well with George W. Bush, so they won’t understand the subtle messages Barack Obama’s team used to communicate their intentions to the Fabian loyalists who currently make up so much of the current federal government in modern America. The American people have been sideswiped by a modern president that is clearly working from the playbook of Fabian Socialists like Stuart Chase. But the goal of the Fabians is not only as deep as Obama, but go back to the time of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Lyndon B. Johnston. It is the Fabian Socialists who put their mark on The New Deal ushering in the era of “Social Security” and the “Great Society” which gave us Medicaid and Medicare. Those programs are now off the table of discussion as most Americans have found themselves using those socialist government concepts in some fashion, and as they will all say – “Of course I’m going to use the program. I paid into it, so I’m going to get out of it what I can.” Thus…………you can see the work of the Fabian Socialist—patient, calculating, manipulative, smug—knowing that once they made America addicted to socialism, voters would never turn it away. The same mentality has been at work behind Obamacare. The goal is not affordable health care, or even helping the poor. The goal is gaining federal control of 1/5th of the American economy so that the government can dictate what we eat, where we go, what kind of jobs we perform, and what type of relationships we conduct ourselves with. The recent endeavors of Mayor Bloomberg in New York City are just the tip of the ice berg when it comes to what the Fabian Socialists wish to do with the government of our American Republic. In the video below, Glenn Beck provides video research into more aspects of Fabian Socialist, Stuart Chase, and their connection to modern-day President Obama.
The strategies of Stuart Chase were not the intentions of The American Revolution, our Declaration of Independence, or our state and federal Constitutions. Rather, Fabian Socialists have sought a legal way to supersede our traditional governments with scams designed to erode away our sovereignty slowly over a long period of time. The success in America that built the skyline of present day New York City, or virtually any business in The United States from “old money” came from the laissez-faire capitalism tendencies during the period directly after the Civil War. What the Fabian Socialists originating from London, England did with their version of socialism has been far more destructive than their direct attempts to destroy America in either The Revolutionary War or the War of 1812. Through the progressive era just ahead of Stuart Chase’s time, they have managed with patience to put the brakes on American economic development by saddling our politics with gradual elements of socialism aimed at specific demographic voting blocs. The aims of the 18 items listed by Stuart Chase are being actively pursued through the American education system, nearly every government office, and nearly every business in America who must deal with federal audits and inspectors to whatever degree. Fabian Socialism is in the life of virtually every American in every corner of the country, and they were put there with the Trojan Horse of kindness, compassion, and manipulative schemes. They have been furthered in recent times with videos like the one produced by the Obama White House delivered with the pleasant voice of Tom Hanks and presented in a way that any logical viewer would conclude to be reasonable, and even beneficial. But what the nice voice of Tom Hanks does not tell you with Obama’s subtle nod to one of his economic mentors in Stuart Chase was that David Axelrod, and the others who appeared in the video are the modern equivalents of the traditional Fabian Socialists. They don’t call themselves such things by name for fear that the American public would reject them, but they believe in the kind of government Stuart Chase discussed in his book, The Road We Are Traveling. So now dear reader, you know as Paul Harvey used to say, the rest of the story when you see propaganda films done about Barack Obama titled, The Road We’ve Traveled. Obama intends to say that the road mentioned in Chase’s book has already happened. In Stuart’s day America was traveling down that road, but under Barack Obama, Stuart’s goals have been obtained. That is why Obama’s public relation handlers changed the title from “we are” to “we’ve.” So observe what the enemy of capitalism is all about and their weapons which are in those 18 points. They are already here, and will stay unless they are defeated and vanquished. That is the reality of the Obama Presidency and the hidden intentions of its administration.
