Free Society

“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.” ~ Margaret Thatcher (1925-2013) British Prime Minister (1979–1990) Source: Speech, Zurich University, 14 March 1977
