I didn't say "Thatcherism was all bad". But I do think she was responsible for promoting and stimulating a 'Gordon Gekko' mindset (i.e. "Greed is good") in the UK.
However, I wasn't aiming to make a political point. The message that I hoped would come across, is that: ONE MILLION ETHIOPIANS DIED OF STARVATION in a decade when greed, self and excess was at it's height - and Live Aid was a stand-out moment, (of real good) in that decade.
When you mention these things in the same list, that's how it gets interpreted. Greed exists on all sides of the political spectrum, particularly among segments that call people greedy for wanting to keep want they've earned instead of allowing it to be extorted.
Certainly in the UK, the 80s was the decade of Thatcherism, greed, self and excess. And I struggle to remember much of any real value coming out of it.
Lots of good stuff happened (first space shuttle takes off, end of the Cold War, fall of the Berlin wall, first IBM PC was released, I was born), you just choose to focus on the negative.
Your glass is obviously half empty.

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Although the buzzwords are nauseating, I'd still apply if the job seemed interesting. They clearly think a large team should be able to work without getting in each other's way. To achieve this, code has to be well structured so that new capabilities can usually be added without churning existing code. I'd be looking for confirmation of this and would also be interested in what they mean by decoupled. If it's lots of messages between processes, their software might be beautifully partitioned, yet grossly inefficient.
