Iron Lady - Rust in peace - A lesson for us all.

Margaret Thatcher was is as divisive in death as she was in life - despite or perhaps because of her biblical ambition at the start of her 'regime'.

Few modern political regimes illustrate more effectively the harsh, punitive, vengeful, attitudes that result from three millenia of elitist male supremacism - patriarchy and conservatism. The worship of 'strength', forcefulness, ultra-competitiveness and the ambition of acquisitive, capitalist culture & libertarian conservatism, bible style - is not the wisdom of peaceful human society, individual happiness and human survival.

The selfish gene is about the survival of enlightened self-interest in community not the individual selfishness of a rat-race society.

Practiced by intelligent and supposedly educated men and women with an innate sense of enlightened self-interest the survival instinct is creating peaceful, compassionate co-operative communities, not coercive subjugation, suffering and sacrifice.

Thatcher death, as a person I feel sadness for her family as a death even Thatcher's is sad for someone, as a woman and a leader she did nothing to progress the lives of other woman, her wholesale disrespect of community and society deeply damaged many people and their lives, I am not sorry at her passing and am glad the media news has taken a balanced approach to reviewing her life. The public purse should not have paid for her funeral.
