MARGARET THATCHER - IAIN MURRAY
American Spectator: The Lady Wasn’t for Turning
Mrs. Thatcher recognized the great error of socialism. As she put it,
the trouble with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money. She proposed a twofold solution. First, stop spending other people’s money. Second, give them the opportunity to earn it. In short, she sought to reintroduce liberal capitalism to the country that had once been at its vanguard — from the repeal of the Corn Laws to the Industrial Revolution.
