The Fabian Society favoured gradual change rather than revolutionary change in 1884 and laid the groundwork for the Labour Party in Britain. The first Fabians exhibited missionary zeal and passionate enthusiasm in the cause of social justice and reforming Britain's imperialist foreign policy. The Fabians lobbied for the introduction of a minimum wage in 1906, for the creation of a universal health care system in 1911 and for the abolition of hereditary peerages in 1917.
