This funeral service is not only about an individual, no matter how powerful; it also about the political group she led with such ruthlessness during her eleven years in power between 1979 and 1990, and which is back in office today. More than a cause for celebration, her death presents the opportunity to reflect upon her legacy, its injustices, its lies, its corruption, its attack on our civil liberties, its collusion with the rich, its war on the poor, and its continuing power to divide.
