Margaret Thatcher: Prime Minister Indomitable

25
Shaping a New Global Community
Delivered to the Aspen Institute in Colorado,
August 5, 1990

Britain's destiny lies in Europe as a full member of the Community. We shall not be standing on the side-lines or, as you would say, watching from the bleachers. On the contrary, we shall bring to it our own distinctive point of view--practical and down-to-earth. We fight hard for what we believe in, namely: a Europe based on willing cooperation between independent sovereign states; a Europe which is an expression of economic freedom, without which political freedom could not long endure; a Europe which rejects central control and its associated bureaucracy; a Europe which does not resort to protectionism but remains open to the outside world; and--of supreme importance for Britain--a Europe which always seeks the closest possible partnership with the United States.

You have chosen for this conference the theme "Shaping a New Global Community." That theme reflects the boldness, energy, and vision of this remarkable country which has led the free world for over four decades. The willingness to think ahead on a world scale, when many countries are self-absorbed, preoccupied, even obsessed with their regional problems, is very refreshing and very necessary. The president gave you his vision of the way ahead in a marvelous speech on Thursday. Anyone who had doubts-- and I certainly had none--about America's willingness to continue to give leadership to the world will realize how wrong they were. I am an undiluted admirer of American values and the American dream, and I believe they will continue to inspire not just the people of the United States, but millions upon millions across the face of the globe.
