  Fabian Strategy - Military History Wiki
Fabian strategy is a military strategy that seeks to buy time and wear down an enemy.
Fabian strategy is named after Quintus Fabius Maximus, the Roman consul given the thankless task of defeating the great general of Carthage, Hannibal, in southern Italy during the Second Punic War.
Hannibal is mentioned in the company of history's great generals, but military professionals have bestowed Fabian's name on an entire strategic doctrine.

The most noted use of Fabian strategy in American history was by George Washington, sometimes called the "American Fabius" for his use of the strategy, but, in fact, its application was originally championed and pressed on Washington by his trusted strategic advisor General Nathanael Greene and the other generals in the Councils of War.
Fabian strategy is sometimes combined with scorched earth tactics that demand sacrifice from civilian populations.

The Fabian Society was founded in 1884 as a socialist society committed to gradual rather than revolutionary social reform.
From the first Fabian Tract (Why are the Many Poor?) and the original Fabian Essays, published in 1889 in the wake of the Match Girls' Strike, the Society has been characterised by a passionate commitment to social justice and a belief in the progressive improvement of society.
Fabian Society pamphlets first proposed the creation of the National Health Service in 1911, the introduction of a minimum wage in 1906, and the abolition of hereditary peers in 1917.

Fabius' strategy may have preserved the Roman army, and assured the loyalty of allies and colonies, but it did nothing to preserve the ultimate source of Roman power-- the land (or more specifically, the farmland).
Basically, Fabius' strategy was the equivalent of barricading oneself in the bedroom while a burglar is free to ransack the house...
Fabius' strategy was part of the overall strategy which defeated Carthage; but Fabius did defeat Hannibal -- Hannibal's lack of success in Italy must be viewed as a major defeat, especially since he seems to have been such a talented general.

 A STRATEGY FOR THE RIGHT
Another alternative right-wing strategy is that commonly pursued by many libertarian or conservative think tanks: that of quiet persuasion, not in the groves of academe, but in Washington, D.C., in the corridors of power.
This sort of strategy may, of course, be personally very pleasant for the think-tankers, and may be profitable in cushy jobs and contracts from the government.
And so the proper strategy for the right wing must be what we can call "right-wing populism": exciting, dynamic, tough, and confrontational, rousing, and inspiring not only the exploited masses, but the often shell-shocked right-wing intellectual cadre as well.
