Margret Thatcher, the woman who gave heartless fascistoid idiocy an ugly face, is dead, which means that while there is not longer a Margret Thatcher, there is still a society. This is interesting, as her whole political viewpoint was base on the assumption that the opposite was true.
Another fun fact about Margret Thatcher is that Annie Lööf idolizes her. Lööf is interesting, in that she’s not the normal kind of t-shirt-in-their-trousers, basement-dwelling, myopic misanthrope that forms most of Thatcher’s fanbase, and it is fun to speculate on exactly why Lööf thinks that she would be part of Thatcher’s Master Race, given that she has problems being taken seriously as the leader of the Centre Party, a party that accepts virtually anyone. They accept Stefan Hanna, for instance, the man who thinks that people who receive social security should be forced to dress up as hyenas (1), and that fat people should be forced to pay more taxes than non-fat people (2). In party where you can have virtually any opinion on any subject whatsoever, and which seems to encourage its members to have both an opinion and the exact opposite opinion at the same time, Lööf is not taken seriously, even though logic dictates that all members of the party should both take her seriously and not take her seriously at the same time.
It is always funny to see people who believe they would be at the top of pyramid in the perfect society, and that all that’s holding them back is immigrants/the welfare state/too many restrictions on the stock market/too few hyena costumes. If only we could add some more fascism/objectivism/good traditional values/conservatism/hyena costume to society, everything would be good. Hah! Nonsense. We all know that, when the revolution comes, crabs will be at the top…
Anyway, happy Thatcher-is-dead day (a little late) to all of you! May she stay dead for a long time!
(1) Because NOTHING highlights your belief in liberty and equality as much as humiliating the poor.
(2) Queer-friendly people may have to pay a trans-fat tax!!!
