When Shaw resigned from the Society's Executive Committee, his tenure as a Fabian activist technically expired in April 1911. Although he departed from the service, Henderson believed that the prophet, and his principles, remained. However, it is important to note that Shaw began drawing attention to his theoretical independence since 1901 since he emphasized the need for measures that would initiate the development of human beings of a higher level. He then shifted to his notion of equal income for all and even attempted to have this featured in the “Basis of the Fabian Society.” In defining socialism, he associated equal income with selective breeding as this furthers “the biological reasons for equality” and the possibility for the rise of a “a new sort of human being.”
