Hugo Young, who covered the Thatcher era for the wonderful newspaper, The Guardian: Margaret Thatcher left a dark legacy that has still not disappeared | Politics | The Guardian
Young wrote this piece shortly before he died in 2003 and all of it still rings true. The dark legacy left by Thatcher also was left by her contemporary Ronald Reagan in the United States. These leaders ultimately made the world they inhabited a poorer society than the one they entered as political leaders.
Isn’t it ironic that we’re supposed to be in the midst of a Great Recession at the very same time that the DOW is closing at all time highs?
There’s only one recession going on, and that’s for the middle and working class.
Wall Street’s doing just fine.
This is the America we live in now, and is the culmination of policies that have been getting put in place since Reagan.
All this “trickle down” and “job creators” and supple side BS were just a way for your boss’s boss’s boss to keep more company profits.
Hell, the whole low taxes on the rich bullshit is just more incentive to keep money concentrated at the top.
I just hope more people will eventually see what has happened over the last 30 some odd years.
