“Mr. Gorbachev, Tear Down This Wall”

Email Email Print

Twenty years ago today, Ronald Reagan uttered words that shook an empire and inspired a captive people.  Powerline has a great write up of the anniversary, and speechwriter Peter Robinson joins me today to discuss the path those words had to travel.

Reagan had to lose the presidential race in order to win it, and had to leave office after eight often difficult years before the Berlin Wall fell and the Soviet empire collapsed.  Reagan never stopped believing in freedom or in the rightness of his cause, leaving a record of persistence that ought to inspire his successors in government as well as those captive and oppressed peoples around the globe who would, like the men and women of Eastern Europe in the long years of Soviet cruelty, prefer freedom to tyranny.
