Taylor on Thatcherism

"I hope that the president ponders well Margaret Thatcher's wise warning against [these] collectivist conceits: 'The illusion that government can be a universal provider, and yet society still stay free and prosperous.... The illusion that every loss can be covered by a subsidy. The illusion that we can break the link between reward and effort, and still get the effort.'"

-- National Journal columnist Stuart Taylor Jr.
