So they\’ve a leader in praise of Beatrice Webb. In the comments:
Are you talking about this Beatrice Webb?
The one who described her nephew\’s (Malcolm Muggeridge) reports on the great famine as being "base lies"?
She was also a supporter of Stalin.
This "saintly" woman and partner in crime, her husband, lie side by side in Westminster Abbey. Placed there out of respect by those with power and privilege as a reward for protecting vested interest and laying the foundations for the masses to be bought off, manipulated and controlled from cradle to grave.
Beatrice Webb was a champagne socialist and an insiduous bitch quite honestly, it is a great shame she was ever born.
Ah yes, that would be Beatrice the Hampstead thinker and toady of tyrants. The breed is not yet dead.
She and her husband were a pair of humourless know it alls and part of a long line of upper bourgeois reformers who could never address the masses in anything other than patronising terms. Their book, Soviet Communism is a piece pf stalinist propaganda and a disgrace to journalism and to socialism. See also GB Shaw and Christopher Hill….
Attitude of the Webbs to eugenics:
"What we as eugenists have got to do is to \’scrap\’ the Old Poor Law with its indiscriminate relief of the destitute as such and replace it by an intelligent policy of so altering the social environment as to discour age or prevent the multiplication of those irrevocably below the National Minimum of Fitness"
("Eugenics and the Poor Law: the Minority Report" 1909 reprinted in the Eugenics Review, Vol. 60 1968, p. 75)
fghj – no wonder the loony brigade -as you describe them – get a tad irritable. Sydney and Beatrice were keen on sterilising them.
That rather tells them, doesn\’t it?
