Those who stand athwart the progressive dream of ending history yelling, “Stop!” suffered a great loss today. The Right Honourable Baroness Margaret Thatcher has died. Whatever one thought of her, there was no denying that she stood her ground with unrivaled firmness.
Lady Thatcher will be remembered as a fearless champion of individual liberty and the rule of law. In so many ways, she was ahead of her time, as a stateswoman, as a conservative, and as a critic of socialism.
She was also a great critic of the project to unite Europe under a single sovereign and currency. This stance was controversial as she was driven from power, but the Iron Lady lived to see a deeply troubled Eurozone, and a lukewarm British response.
Maggie has much to be proud of. Ronnie will be ever so happy to see her.
