Goodbye Baroness Thatcher

Despite the ultimate futility of what she tried to accomplish, she was (and I will speak of this more soon) one of that final generation of western leaders who were honestly, unmistakably grownups. In the end, it was her lot to fight the good fight for a noble lost cause; to push back against the impersonal, irresistible, Spenglerian forces that flow where they will; to stand athwart history yelling “Stop!”.

Farewell, Baroness – as Pat Buchanan said of your friend and compatriot Ronald Reagan, we shall not see your like again. The historians of a saner age, a few centuries hence, will speak highly of you.
