(p.41) 4 “Permeate”
Bernard Shaw as Artist-Fabian

Charles A. Carpenter

University Press of Florida

In attempts at influencing units of political power to consider and adopt the Society's policies, Shaw served as a valued collaborator in the permeation strategy and was teamed with Webb and several others. Margaret Cole, a Fabian, compares the practice of permeation with “honeycombing” as non-Fabians are converted to ensure that the resolution was put into effect. As such, Shaw expressed how he perceived permeation as the “policy of propagating Fabian ideas outside the Society wherever there was a human brain for them to lodge in” in which the world would consider their ideas and initiate reform on its own. When permeation was applied to Parliament, it was then associated with the Government's wire-pulling to pass Socialist measures.
