America's Counter-Revolution
The Constitution Revisited

From the back cover:

This book challenges the assumption that the Constitution was a landmark in the struggle for liberty. Instead, Sheldon Richman argues, it was the product of a counter-revolution, a setback for the radicalism represented by America’s break with the British empire. Drawing on careful, credible historical scholarship and contemporary political analysis, Richman suggests that this counter-revolution was the work of conservatives who sought a nation of “power, consequence, and grandeur.” America’s Counter-Revolution makes a persuasive case that the Constitution was a victory not for liberty but for the agendas and interests of a militaristic, aristocratic, privilege-seeking ruling class.

Another Victim

The war on drugs (sic; it's a war on people) has another victim -- or is about to. See this post from Brad Spanger about a man who will almost certainly be jailed in the U.S. (if he hasn't been already) and die from a rare form of cancer because he cannot obtain marijuana. Steve Kubby fled to Canada to avoid prosecution in California, but thanks to U.S.-Canadian collusion he has been returned. If jailed, he is doomed. Our Benevolent State always looks out for us, especially the most vulnerable. It's not "medical marijuana" we need; it's simple freedom.

Update: Brad Spangler has late developments here.
