Not a homage

It has come to my attention that Ronald Reagan was known in the US as 'The Great Communicator'. Humph. No reference intended in the name of this blog. I have two strong opinions about Reagan's regime:

'Reaganomics' = tax cuts paid for by running up massive debts, with a figleaf of public service downgrading
Reagan's foreign policy = prop up the most brutal regimes on the planet, and fund mercenary death squads

We, globally, are paying the proce of these two policies to this day. A generation grew up in the third world, under the threat of torture and starvation because of the economic and political strategies used by Reagan and Thatcher.

I got the name of my blog from this lyric.
