The article focuses on the book "New Fabian Essays." It is about fabianism, a programme of effecting reforms for the working class. It had ignored the political revolution of the last fifty years which has played untold new powers in the hands of the state, or its possible despotic controllers. In fact, the world danger created by present-day technics was that of the managerial society, seen in its most tyrannical form not only in the Soviet Union, but also in the United States under the stress of Cold War.
