Fabianism refers to the political ideals and models put forth by the the British Fabian society. This organization champions the social and governmental changes that slowly transition a society into a socialist model without the need for a violent transition such as might be caused by revolution. This type of transition has, since World War II, brought about the evolution of the modern welfare state in England and former British colonies as is most noticeable in national health care programs. The principles of Fabianism and the Fabian Society exist in many countries under different names.
