GUEST,rarelamb BS: Happy Birthday Mrs Thatcher-13 Oct 1925 (165* d) RE: BS: Happy Birthday Mrs Thatcher 19 Oct 05


I for one wish that there was more dogma on this thread. I have consistently been an unapologetic proponent of Libertarian values on this board.

If there was more dogma from the left, one would at least be able to understand the arguements. What I have seen has been attempts to call names and wish ill health. That is hardly conducive to a discussion.

Nor is posting that I am wrong but not explaining the whys or under what basis I am incorrect, helpful in this discussion. The opposition has not put forward a coherent arguement. That is the problem. I welcome others to put forward evidence as to why I am incorrect, or at least put forward an alternative explaination of Lady Thatcher's time in office.

The only arguement put forward that I can tell is that she is responsible for a 'me first' attitude in the UK.   It was correctly put forward that there has always been a 'me first' attitude. I challenge anyone to prove an act is altruistic.

I will end this post with a couple of quotes from a Britain from the 18th century.

"It is not the benevolence of the butcher the baker or the brewer that we derive our meals but rather of their self love"

"Every individual necessarily labours to render teh annual revenue of society as great as he can. He neither intends to promote the public interest nor knows how much he has. He is in this as in many othe rcases led by an invisible hand to promote an end that was not part of his intentions."

or something there abouts.
