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.

I replied to a Jane Bryant Quinn article a while back when she wrote about gasoline prices. I told her that I thought we should let the market decide the price of gasoline, and the government should not be concerned about it. She emailed me back, saying that I was wrong because oil was a national security issue. And so many people take Jane Bryant Quinn seriously. What a mistake.
