Margaret Thatcher, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1979 to 1990, died today following a stroke according to Sky News. Along with Ronald Reagan, she was one of the brightest voices for freedom and prosperity in last quarter of the 20th century. Here she is on the floor of the House of Commons defending capitalism in terms still strikingly relevant today.
“Yes, he would rather have the poor poorer, provided the rich were less rich. That is the liberal policy.” – Margaret Thatcher
