The Sovereignty Campaign
Eighty-nine years ago today burst Margaret Hilda Roberts upon the world, daughter of the local grocer in Grantham, Lincolnshire, England. She married a man in the chemistry business, Denis Thatcher.
By the age of sixty-five, she was delivering as Prime Minister, her last interchange in the House of Commons. There, prophetically, she held strong against the entrapment of a common currency throughout Europe as being the means of a new collectivist imperialism and condemned collectivism itself as destruction of the people’s own livelihoods (also paving the path of authoritarianism, as she had aptly maintained).
Her speech is excerpted at YouTube in an entry, “Thatcher’s Last Stand Against Socialism,” featured here and her eloquence that day is transcribed on the MargaretThatcher.org page, “HC S: [Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government].”
Intriguingly, this, her farewell came on November 22, 1990, the 27th anniversary of the departing of three previous champions against the intrinsic and inevitable corruption of hive-minded, transnational collectivism, C.S. Lewis, Aldous Huxley, and John F. Kennedy, as we have also documented. In different ways and differing levels of success, all four were champions of personal sovereignty, freedom, and thus, actual peace as it may be found on earth.
