"We want a society in which we are free to make choices, to make mistakes, to be generous and compassionate. That is what we mean by a moral society - not a society in which the State is responsible for everything, and no one is responsible for the State."
"Socialism's results have ranged between the merely shabby and the truly
catastrophic - poverty, strife, oppression and, on the killing fields of
communism, the deaths this century of perhaps 100 million people. Against that
doctrine was set a contrary, conservative belief in a law-governed liberty. It
was this view which triumphed with the crumbling of the Berlin Wall. Since then,
the Left has sought rehabilitation by distancing itself from its past."
"Socialists have always spent much of their time seeking new titles for their
beliefs, because the old versions so quickly become outdated and discredited."
- Margaret Thatcher
