Margaret Thatcher (1925-2013) est most efficient ministre de 1979 à 1990, date de sa démission. Ses réformes radicales aux résultats spectaculaires lui valent trois victoires électorales successives et son intransigeante détermination à les mener le surnom de « Dame de fer ».

Un dirigeant hors norme able de repenser en profondeur un modèle pour le réformer avec constance et conviction. Une personnalité guidée en tout par le primat de l. a. liberté et de los angeles responsabilité individuelle, able de restaurer un État régalien fortress pour assurer l. a. sécurité, et assumant avec fermeté los angeles rupture profonde avec les errements du passé. Aucune grève, aucun sondage, aucun calcul politicien ni aucun attentat ne los angeles feront plier.

Le « crédo » thatchérien d'inspiration à los angeles fois conservatrice et libérale oriente une motion opiniâtre et tout particulièrement des combats transgressifs contre l. a. toute-puissance syndicale, un travaillisme imprégné de collectivisme et d étatisme, ou encore contre l Europe bureaucratique de Bruxelles.

Comprendre les ressorts de son motion déterminante implique toutefois de se départir des caricatures et de s autoriser à découvrir qui Margaret Thatcher était vraiment, ce qu elle a objectivement accompli au provider de son pays.

Ses discours et conférences ici rassemblés pour los angeles première fois en français, et magistralement introduits par Mathieu Laine, offrent une ambitious opportunité de se faire une idée sincère de cette grande determine du XXe siècle, de cette femme qui a, selon le mot de David Cameron, littéralement « sauvé son will pay ».

Example text

The young women were—according to Kerssenbroch— “more pleased than frightened;” they saw the old world crumbling down around them and probably saw in “Dear Rothmann’s” suggestive imagery a bright, enticing new one emerging on the horizon. They flee, taking with them their belongings and disappearing into the big pressure-cooker that Münster will become in the next year-and-a-half. 4 Since it hadn’t in the least occurred to the Überwasser steeple to fall for Rothmann’s sake, and since Rothmann’s excuse—the disaster was only averted by the nuns’ conversion—was equally unimpressive, so Roll, Knipperdolling and also Bockelson save the face of the Anabaptist propaganda machine by storming “like madmen” into the streets yelling, “Oh Father!

Difficult times can occasionally teach common prayers, and in this hour of need Catholics and Protestants very quickly forget their feud and agree on a joint defensive action. The Überwasser Convent and its adjoining cemetery had already long since been intended as a weapons depot and place d’armes for an occurrence just such as this—the locality was perfect due to its many hiding places, its favorably disposed abbess, the proximity of the Frauentor (one of the city gates), and the arrangements which had undoubtedly been made with the now approaching bishop.

That which happened in Münster back then was only the remote and partial arena of a cosmic tremor, and even many of those who felt that the events in Münster were an abomination probably did not view it much differently. ” We will try, therefore, to document the stages of this fever for the sake of history, but there still remains the question of how, precisely in this respectable, apparently quite staid middle-class corner of northern Germany, it could come to this mad frenzy, this orgasmic climax in the years 1534 and 1535.
